(Doing the Sums) Are You Joe Average?

Following on from yesterdays post on how democracy has failed us all.

Here is a test to see just how average you are:

1. Write out a list of the songs you voted for in the triplej Hottest 100.
2. Write down the position each of these came in the triplej Hottest 100
3. If a song did not make the list put down 101.
4. Add up the scores, and divide by the number of songs you voted for.
5. Post your results as a comment to this blog entry. The lower the score the more average you are.

Here is how Bawley scored:

Cut Copy - So Haunted - 101
Bloc Party - Waiting For The 7:18 - 101
Klaxons - Golden Skans - 54
Radiohead - 15 Step - 101

Soko - I'll Kill Her - 9

Here is how to interpret your score

YOUR MAINSTREAMITY RATING:

1-13: You are the lovechild of Bernard Fanning and Rikki Lee Coulter.

14-27: Betcha listen to 104.7 when no-one's around.

28-40: Very vanilla.

41-52: "Middle of the Hill" is your signature song in more ways than one.

53-65: Pretty pedestrian, but you probably have one weirdo friend who is rubbing off on you more than you realise.

66-77: Kinda quirky in a cute way.

78-89: Kinda quirky in a "slowly back away..." way.

90-100: You're a f***ing freak, man

101: Did you vote for songs, or flavours of ice cream????
