We can guess your age based on your taste in music

What you listen to reveals a lot.

Music is the most personal form of art. It's intangible, so we can't quite put our finger on just why a song makes us feel a certain way. 

Pop has constantly evolved over the last 60 years, and our tastes are probably rooted in the era of our adolescence. At least, that's the theory we're working with here in trying to guess your age.

Certainly, some young people dig the music of the 1960s, and some 60-somethings dig the music of today. But we'll take a stab at how old you are. Think of it as your spiritual musical age.

Did we come close?

65 and I'm 52. I liked a lot of the "one hit wonders", but the S.O.S. Band didn't belong. I was still jamming to their hits up to 1986!

You are 65 years old
The Sixties truly were the golden era of pop music, right?
