an A to Z of musical favourites

I used to think you could tell an awful lot about a person by the type of music that they listen to. I believed that a massive part of who I was would depend on what variations and genres I had sitting happily in my music library. Yet now, as I scroll through it, it's clear that not even the smartest of beings could decipher just what I'm like by scrolling through the the artists and albums on my phone. On Monday I might fancy listening to a couple of tracks by the Arctic Monkeys, on Tuesday I might shuffle my playlist of favourite tracks from The Crookes and on Wednesday I might even crave a listen to the Mamma Mia soundtrack for all I know. The code is just impossible to crack. I love music that really does stretch right across the board but if there is one thing I love just as much as I love music it's writing lists. So today I decided to combine the two in the hope that maybe you can give your best shot and shine a bit of light on what type of a person I really am based on the songs that I enjoy a good listen to.
