About This Quiz

A musical playlist says more about the listener than the artists. Music expresses what cannot be said or shown in another medium. Music touches the listener because the songwriter and singer have done the emotional work for the listener. Songs can take years to compose, and they reflect the hard-won experiences of the musician, the years, sometimes decades of time spent honing their craft, and the innate talents of the musician.

Music connects us to times and places in your lives, memories of long-lost loves, and friends who have passed on. We remember our childhoods by their music, our adolescences by their music, and our young adulthoods by their music. We remember time by bands that got together and broke up, solo artists who shone and fizzled out, and top ten hits.

Likewise, choosing a city to live in says more about the person than the city. Cities are a product of history, commerce, and culture. Each city has its feel, its local culture, and its favored industries. To live in a place means to be a part of its history. Culture vultures may favor New York, while outdoor enthusiasts may prefer Denver. If you want to work in the movie business though, you are likely to have to live in Los Angeles.
