Susan is a fellow Brit and a lovely lady (I'm not making that up - we have met! Of all her books I've read so far, if I had to pick a favourite, it would be Stripped Bare, but I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of Love and Punishment too. You can catch the blurb and links at the bottom of this post.

Susan has written a great post about the music she likes and what it says about her. I'll definitely be taking the test she talks about for a future post.

A glimpse into my world and my music - Susan MacNicol

I recently did an online quiz to see what my music said about me. You can do the same quiz here:

The result was that I enjoy the ‘reflective and complex music preference dimension.’

I obtained a very high score for this and apparently it tells me the following about me. I’m open to new experiences, am creative, intellectual and enjoy trying new things. Politics wise I’m a liberal. Wisdom, diversity and fine arts are important to me. Financially I’m supposed to be fairly well off and apparently I’m ‘sophisticated’. After a hard day of work, if I’m not listening to music or reading a book, I enjoy documentary films, independent, classic or foreign films. I’m also tagged as having energetic and aggressive music preferences, meaning I enjoy enjoying taking risks and engaging in thrilling experiences. I am dominant, imaginative and energetic. Freedom, independence and excitement are important to me. I like watching action, science fiction, fantasy, war and horror movies.

Not a bad synopsis actually. Apart from the fact I’m not well off, (yet), I don’t really enjoy documentaries, and I’m also not a thrill seeker, the above is actually spot on. The sophisticated tag is still being debated.

This is a selection of the type of music you’ll find on my Samsung Note Smartphone. It’s a pretty eclectic mix of music. I hate pop, not fond of rap unless it’s Plan B, love rock and Indie music, and will tolerate some dance music.

In no order of preference, here is the music I listen to with some links to some of my favourite songs and bands

Foo Fighters Rope

Kasabian Re-Wired

The Killers The track ‘Human’

Arctic Monkeys Teddypicker

White Lies Holy Ghost

30 Seconds to Mars ‘Time to Wake up’

Muse Undisclosed Desires

Alex Clare Too Close

Jace Everett Bad Things

Incubus Best track – Admiration

Institute Bulletproof Skin

The Heavy Short Change hero

Plan B Welcome to Hell

The Wombats Tokyo

Dimitri Shostakovich Symphony no 5

Love And Punishment

On the search for a serial killer, Detective Anthony Parglietto and Flynn Parker learn that every man must make a choice: to kill, to live, to love. FROM DARKNESS AND LIGHT Someone is leaving a trail of bodies throughout London, and Detective Anthony Parglietto is determined to end the violence. Then he’ll return to the man he loves. Tough, street-savvy, and used to dealing with lowlifes, Flynn Parker is the last person Anthony thinks he has to protect. Then the Bow-Tie Killer strikes close to home and the world turns upside down. Right is wrong, black is white, and a policeman might become a monster. But in the name of love, justice must be served. In the name of love, pain can be endured. In the name of love, a man can taste the very essence that defines him.
