    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.

    Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad?
    champagne supernova can either make me feel really happy, or really sad depending on what state i'm in at the time.

    What is your favorite lyric that 2 has sung?
    "Say what you say,
    Do what you do
    Feel what you feel,
    As long as it's real.
    I said take what you take
    And give what you give
    Just be what you want,
    Just as long as it's real."

    How did you get into 3?
    my daddy played (What's The Story?) Morning Glory constantly, plus oasis are just legendary and everyone knows them.
