    This is the second time I take this test, and in both cases I got Bach.

    Same here. On all 3 counts.

    How do you get this one wrong?

    From troubled beginnings, Claude Debussy rose to become a true force in eighteenth and nineteenth century music. A tireless mind and broad spirit propelled him on a constant search for new experiences - any side of life that could fire his imagination. Although this behavior led to occasional excess and indulgence, his music benefited greatly, and Claude was able to produce some of the most fresh and innovative sounds of his time. Like him you are an intrepid explorer, always seeking new vistas and moods through which to view life. Sometimes you are a bit too eager, however, and your spirit may prove restless.

    The description they provide of him doesn't much fit with what I know and doesn't fit at all with what I hear in the music:

    Igor Stravinsky

    One part provocative chameleon and one part mad scientist, Stravinsky is known for writing in a variety of unusual styles. The author of such landmark works as The Firebird and The Rite of Spring (the latter of which caused a riot at its premiere!), Stravinsky's music is famous for its innovative approach to both harmony and rhythm. His unusual style compliments his reputation as a rootless exile. Like Igor, you are something of a wildcat. You're probably known for your eclectic tastes, you like to get out in the world, and your various eccentricities occasionally upset people. But boy can you keep things interesting!

    3 tries. The results - Ravel, Stravinsky, Beethoven.

    You're shattering a boy's faith in the unerring accuracy of an Internet test!

    Mozart on the very first try - scary almost spookily accurate and also apparently I'm the first to be so designated... But I may have gotten a few extra points for the "willingness to create polls" and "posting dance videos" questions... I'm pretty freakin' good at 'em so don't be too disheartened, eh?

    Yeah, it threw me for a loop too, pun intended

    AND, btw, my chosen answers when I got Stravinsky were actually nice. I bet I had a bit of a salad leaf hanging from my mouth when I saw that result. I really didn't see that one coming.

    Though to be fair I think this test is more about an attitude and approach to work, creativity and some social inclinations. All those three composers are about breaking a new ground.

    I wonder if Wagner is even an option. They might have worried people would get offended or take that the wrong way.
