    My Bloody Valentine
    Snow Patrol
    The Pogues
    Stiff Little Fingers
    The Undertones
    The Divine Comedy
    The Cranberries
    The Virgin Prunes

  • My Eclectic Score

    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. You can compute your own score at
