16 Jul 2007, 6:41Take 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.

10 Feb 2007, 23:59OK, bamgrrl, I had a really good alibi as to why I couldn't complete this meme in a timely manner. It was a real doozy, complete with all kinds of aliens and death rays and kaiju eiga and trolls invading Shakespeare's Sister and fire and death and ...
Never mind. It'll take too long to explain.
I listened to your radio station and here's what it said:
* I'm Your Man
OK, I admit, I've never really listened a Leonard Cohen album before, so this probably wasn't the right track to begin with. Honestly, I had this picture of Lurch from The Addams Family singing in a smoky bar.
* Devil's Radio
I liked this track. I'm not a big Beatles fan, but I really dug this song.
* Deer Dance
Ooooooooook, this one was just silly.
* Los Twangueros
Aaaaawwww yeeeaaahhhh. I dig me some Ry Cooder. Buena Vista Social Club is one of my favorite albums.
* Dutchess And The Proverbial Mind Spread
Not a Primus fan, but this was interesting. It's got a real Link Wray feel to it, if Link took some happy pills.
* I'm Not in Love
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Tori Amos. I could listen to her sing the phone book.
* San Tropez
All right, who's been recording my dreams?
One of my favorites off of the Play album. I like playing this song when playing racing games.
* Monkey In Your Soul
* Never Tear Us Apart
This takes me back to high school. Oh, God, am I really that old? I sang this to a girl in school. She never spoke to me again. All was good.
OK, I need to go soak my robot brain in beer now.
