About This Quiz

Music is one of the few things in the world that has a strange and powerful way of cutting to the heart of who we are and what we do, think and feel about life. So many moments in our lives have a soundtrack to them, and that music that can bring us back in time when we hear it. Not only can those songs make us remember the old times, but they can make us feel the way we did back then. It's an incredible power that music has, and it's one of the reasons why we love it so much. Music tells us about who we are and who we were. In some ways, it even reflects who we want to be.
