  • How varied is my music taste?

    20 avr. 2007, 6h57m par driftingwind

    Variety rating: 122
    hmmm.. not bad.
    The list takes a long long time to compile though. :(

    First, make a list of your top-20 artists overall. Then, for each of these artists, add the 8 most similar artists to your list. Delete any duplicates, count up the number of entries on your list and this will give you some idea of how eclectic your listening habits are. A score of 9 represents an extremely unvaried musical taste while a 160 represents an extremely varied one.

    Comment :
    i) With the way I'm listening to the Doors a lot lately, the rating probably will climb much higher in the next few weeks.

    ii) It really says more about the preference of last.fm listeners than my personal taste. I'd probably get a much higher rating (not that it's a good thing) if last.fm have mostly Japanese members.
