A lot of people here seem to think I have a narrow taste in music. I admit I have a soft spot for female vocalists and Nordic music. I realize a lot of people don't care about this. If you don't care you can just leave. You don't have to read this if you don't want to.
I mostly listen to female vocalists. I think most
male singers are either too emotionless or whiny. I know a lot of people will disagree with me on this. I have been listening to more male vocalists lately. I think it's unfair when people criticize me for mostly listening to female vocalists. I never
see anyone being criticized for preferring male singers. I guess no one notices when people prefer male vocalists. I won't dismiss an artist just because it has a male vocalist. I just find those artist way harder to get into. I guess this situation I'm in proves that sexism is still a big problem today. I find it pretty annoying that most female vocalists are tagged as female vocalists, but male vocalists are not. I think I'll list some artists with male vocalists I enjoy.
- Röyksopp- I guess they occasionally feature female vocalists. Most of their music has male vocals or no vocals.
- Balstyrko- They do have female vocalists on some songs, but most of their songs have a male vocalist.
- Treefight for Sunlight- None of their songs have a single female vocalist.
- Warduna- They do have a female vocalist, but she is not the lead singer. The lead singer is male.
- Hedningarna- They occasionally feature female vocalists, but their lead singer is male.
- Finntroll- Most of the metal I listen to has a male vocalist.
- Pariisin Kevät-All their songs have a male vocalist.
- Tv-2-The lead singer of this band is one of my favorite male vocalists.
- Árstíðir- I love when they sing in Icelandic.
I realize this list is a bit short. I find I just find it so annoying when people think I only listen to female vocalists. Maybe you can recommend me some artists with male vocalists.
I'm pretty sick of people criticizing me for mostly listening to Nordic music. A lot of the people that criticize me for that listen to more American music than I listen to Nordic music.
As you can see here I do enjoy Nordic music. I added up all the percentages for the Nordic countries and I got 71.91%. I realize this seems like a lot. Now let's look at some other people's nationality stats.
Agent Orange has criticized me for mostly listening to Nordic music. As you can see here it is very hypocritical of him. He listens to more American music than I listen to Nordic music. Maybe not a lot more, but you have to remember that the USA is only one country.
I don't have a lot more to say, but I will post my eclectic score.
Take your top 20 artists. For each of these artists, collect the top 5 similar artists. The resulting number of unique artists is your eclectic score
. If the score is small (extreme = 5) your musical preferences are very limited, and if it is large (larger than 80, extreme = 100), then you have an eclectic musical preference. You can compute your own score at http://anthony.liekens.net/pub/scripts/last.fm/eclectic.php
