I received an interesting email from eMusic today that challenged me to test my musical intelligence. Naturally I got right on that. I scored a 129 out of 180 (how it’s scored I have no idea), which makes me a Mix-Tape Master (aw yeah!). Here’s what it says about me:
You are a music evangelist: the person in your network of friends who always has the coolest new song, the one whose iPod gets picked to DJ every party. You understand the art of the segue, how the key to the best mix-tape isn’t just the songs you pick, but how they interlock with each other. You also know who the up-and-coming acts are and are quick to recognise where their influences lie and whether they will make it big. You work hard at the pursuit of this knowledge, scouring music blogs, magazines and record stores. Most importantly, you are generous with your passion – and your friends should be very, very grateful. Still, it’s always good to get new inspiration for your latest mix.
Yeah, that sounds about right. Some of the questions were obvious jokes, which I’m a little disappointed in. It’s not like they couldn’t think of 30 serious questions in a row. I guessed on a few, but that’s to be expected. Anyway, here’s the quiz if you’re so inclined. No cheating!
