I had a phase when I was in year 8 (or was it 9?) Where I'd listen to nearly nothing but Linkin Park, Muse and Green Day.

Same? During like the exact same time? Is this a thing?
It's like how almost everyone I know went through the phase of wanting to be a marine biologist (including myself hahaha)

stop it...I also wanted to be a marine biologist and I don't even particularly enjoy science...
Why? Is it because I imagined me gliding with turtles? Looking at coral? I don't know...

As for my 5th favourite music artist (in case you were holding your breathe)...I can't call it. I really don't think there's anyone else that in 40 years time I'll still remember loving them. That's the yardstick I'm using. The bar is set high. Only 4 make the cut!

SEE IT'S ACTUALLY A THING. I've hated science since year 7 and even I was infected  :P I blame the movie Nim's Island.

Also as I realise I'm going off topic a bit here - my guilty pleasure when it comes to music is film sountracks. As weird as it might sound probably listen to these as much as I listen to regular music haha. Five favourite soundtrack artists are Hans Zimmer (he's holding a concert here soon and I really want to go but it's sooo expensive  :'( ), Danny Elfman, Masamichi Amano (mainly for Battle Royale), Michael Giacchino and Hideki Taniuchi  :)

I feel so alone, I listened only to classical music till about a year ago so the top of my list is still composers... is that allowed? :(

1. Beethoven
2. Tchaikovsky
3. Dvorak
4. Chopin
5. Rachmaninoff

I'm going to listen to as many of everyone's recommendations as I can though, because I enjoy (quality) music of almost any style except hip hop/rap which I swear isn't real music :p

Oh my goodness...SAME!!!! I only started listening to songs other than classical music around a year ago too... so glad to know I'm not alone..
Spoiler
shocking confession: I admit I didn't even know any songs by Mariah Carey, JB, Madonna, Adele or any of the top music artists and I pretty much knew nothing of them (like what they looked like, their age, etc. etc....) I just heard of them.... Anyway, you get the idea.. I was totally living under a rock haha....
Yep!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE BEETHOVEN!!!! IMO, his music was and still is the BEST haha (totally biased here haha)!!! But I feel like such a weirdo though especially when people play songs that are supposed to be super "well-known" and everyone is singing to it and I'm just awkwardly standing there not knowing what to do..... :(  :-[

This is actually the weirdest phenomenon - like marine biologist is a pretty specific career path. 100% proof of the illuminati in my opinion.

(Image removed from quote.)

Further evidence for my theory provided by 13 Reasons Why (episode 11 I think), where one of the characters intends to pursue marine biology rather than become a pro basketball player. This phenomenon has now infiltrated pop-culture.

(i know this is off topic but unfortunately talking about music is a bit painful for me rn - missed out on splendour in the grass tickets  :'( )

Good idea!!

1. Bastille (I know every single damn song off by heart <3)
2. Rachmaninoff/Chopin (I can't decide!! >:0)
3. Arctic Monkeys (I mean, cold monkeys with garage/indie pop.)
4. Jack Jonathan (Banana Pancakes is an honest musical sin)
5. Arctic Empire (good chillstep mixes for study/when you're sad, y'all)

@Sine, is it okay that my preferences change depending on the day?
Fickle, fickle me.
