1. Open your music library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc.).
2. Put it on shuffle and press play.
3. For every question, type the song that's playing. When you go to a new question, go to the next song.
4. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool.

Mostly, this illustrates my eclectic and Catholic taste (what can I say? I'm a Mac user!)

I like "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis"--it's a piece of music I liked right away, on just one listening.

Me too. Actually, I like most of Vaughn Williams, but the Tallis has always been my favourite.

I'm not entirely convinced by the PC= Protestant idea. I think PCs are more gnostic - they require Secret Knowledge to work correctly. If they were Calvinist (or strictly speaking, Augustinian) it would be more of a game of chance...

PCs are for Cathars, Macs are for Catholics?

Hmmm . . . can't play this one. I don't have a "music library." :(

Well, you do, of course, but not in the electronic sense. I'd love to see what came up out of random samples of YOUR amazing music collection.
