Poison’s Self-Realization Music Survey

I put this survey together quite a few years ago, and I’m sure I would have some very different answers today. You can share if you’re so inclined. Probably more appropriate for Facebook, but the answers are always more interesting than the questions.

  • Favorite musical style:

 

  • 2nd favorite style:

 

  • Your personal eclectic mix (everything else you like):

 

  • Least favorite musical style(s). Why?

 

  • Favorite artist(s):

 

  • Favorite group:

 

  • Favorite songs:

 

  • Describe your favorite musical settings and why they move you. For example, Jazz Quintet, Solo Guitar, Piano & Vocals, etc.:

 

  • What do you look for in a great live performance?

 

  • Most memorable concert you attended?

 

  • Which song reminds you of your spouse / significant other? Why?

 

  • What was your wedding song? Does it seem trite now, or would you pick the same song today?

 

  • Which song reminds you of a lost love?

 

  • Which song reminds you of your child (children)? Why?

 

  • Which song do you most identify with self? Why?

 

  • Which group or artist would you choose to compose your theme song? Why?

 

  • What type of music, or which artist(s) do you listen to when you’re happy? When you’re depressed?

 

  • What song or album gets you in “the mood?”

 

  • What song or album carries you back to your childhood? Why?

 

  • Do you like to sing? Who or what do you sound like? Who or what would you like to sound like?

  1. I love these!
    Favorite Musical Style: probably indie/emo
    Second Favorite Style: punk/alternative rock
    Personal Eclectic Mix: pretty much anything but radio rap and mainstream pop
    Leas Favorite Musical Style: I’m not a fan of most radio rap due to its content; I tend to dislike mainstream pop because the lyrics are often shallow and lack any poetic flair
    Favorite Artists/Groups: Coldplay, Foo Fighters, Band of Horses, Jimmy Eat World, Coheed and Cambria, Saves the Day, Secondhand Serenade, Mayday Parade
    Favorite Songs: the whole Dances with Wolves soundtrack, The Scientist by Coldplay, Everlong by the Foo Fighters, Glycerine by Bush, Better Man by Pearl Jam; Mr. Jones by Ben Folds
    Favorite Musical Settings: piano, strings
    Live Performance: My main concern is that I am energized enough to stay awake until the end (not a night person)!
    Most memorable concert: Probably All American Rejects in Detroit during my college years–but the first (and only!) time I crowd surfed was at a Taking Back Sunday show, and that was pretty memorable, too. So was Incubus…
    Okay, running out of time… Maybe I will be able to answer the rest of the questions (which are so fun!!!) later! Time will tell!
