I prefer the shorter lists, like the retro list as far as time limit. I can usually listen to a whole list in one sitting. It's difficult, at least for me timewise, to hear a full 2 hour list at one time and absorb it, but that's just me. If I don't hear the whole list or at least both people's list in the round, I tend not to vote. I can't usually hear a song once and have an opinion on it. Heck, I can't even listen to a U2 album (really any band's release) and have an opinion until after numerous plays

Haha, when he took the test he was trying to dodge saying yes to that question.

I'm the same way, with not being able to form an opinion after one listen (usually). There are always exceptions, of course


Also, Hi Lila!

Oh, I definitely know what you mean there. When I get a new album, I usually have to listen to it about four times before I feel I can solidly say what I think are the highlights and the best tracks. For playlists though, I find it's a bit different, I guess because I often already know a good number of the songs, so I form my opinion much quicker.

But yeah, I wouldn't be disappointed if the shorter form became the main form and we ran the long form only occasionally.

The question never stated if the taker of the quiz was actually the jailbait

Hi Ali


Did I mention that I retook the test when I had more time, and I actually had a slightly lower score?

Actually, I was trying to dodge posting the score for a while. Because it was like another lifetime for me. If I took the test now, just going by the last 25 years or so, it would be quite different
