If someone picked up my iPhone, and started playing my cleverly titled playlist, "Favourites", they'd think I'm a serious sufferer from ADD, or that I have ridiculously swaying tastes in music.

I'm going to go through my list and I'll name some random artists that I have here…

  • ABBA
  • Barenaked Ladies
  • The Beatles
  • Bruno Mars
  • Cee Lo Green
  • David Bowie
  • Earth, Wind & Fire
  • Elton John
  • Foster the People
  • Hall & Oates
  • Justin Timberlake
  • Maroon 5
  • Michael Jackson
  • Nobuo Uematsu
  • Outkast
  • Paul McCartney
  • Silverchair
  • Train
  • Traveling Wilburys
  • Wham!

That's not even everything, just a sliver of the bouncing preferences in music that I have.

So my task for you is: Going through your playlist/collection of music, that you have on your current devices/computers, name the artists that are the furthest away on the genre spectrum.

If you don't want to talk about this, then feel free to talk about anything else!
