What best describes your music collection?
All my collection is organised by hand in a certain way
My collection is broadly categorised by hand (e.g. genre or mood playlists/folders)
My music system organises my collection for me
There is no specific organisation to my music collection
I can never find anything when I want it!
Can you remember the first album you bought?
Yes, I can remember what it was and exactly when and where I bought it
I can remember what it was, but not exactly when I bought it
Not off hand, I probably could if I thought about it
I doubt it
I have no idea
Why did you make your last music purchase?
I had to have it, I heard it and I just had to go and buy it
I knew I would like it, because I’ve built up a knowledge of what I like
I’d heard a couple of the tracks I liked so bought it to see if the whole thing was good
It was recommended to me, so I thought I’d give it a go
I can’t remember
Lyrics in music, which best describes you?
I never really listen to the lyrics in songs
With some of my favourite music I know the lyrics, but otherwise I don’t really pay attention to the lyrics in songs
I like to know the lyrics so I can sing along
I have to know the lyrics because it’s central to understanding what the artist is trying to convey
I have to know the lyrics because I don’t want to be singing along to something that might be at odds with my beliefs
