My Eclectic Score is…

My eclectic music score is 90 out of 100 (according to this nifty last.fm script).

It also figures out an extended list of recommended artists calculated thusly:

The following script takes the 20 top artists in your musical profile from Last.fm, and finds the collection of top 5 similar artists for this top 20. The resulting is a list of artists similar to your preferred artists. As the list is larger (maximum = 100), your musical preference is more diverse.

The 90 related artists for my profile are:

!!!, Alex Smoke (2), Andrew Bird, Anthony Rother, Arab Strap, Arctic Monkeys, Audio Werner, Autechre, Biosphere, Black Eyed Peas, Boards of Canada, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Booka Shade, Bright Eyes, Caribou, Cassius, Chris Clark, Clark, DJ Koze, DJ Shadow, DMX Krew, Daedelus, Damien Rice, Deaf Center, Digitalism, Dntel, Dominik Eulberg, Efdemin, Ellen Allien & Apparat, Elliott Smith (2), Felix da Housecat, Four Tet (2), Franz Ferdinand, Gabriel Ananda, Gui Boratto (2), Henrik Schwarz, I-F, Interpol, Iron & Wine (2), Isolée, J Dilla, James Yorkston and The Athletes, Jaylib, Jimmy Edgar, Julien Neto, Junior Boys, Justus Köhncke (2), Kanye West, Kelis, LCD Soundsystem, Legowelt, MF DOOM, Madvillain, Marsen Jules, Mathias Kaden, Michael Mayer, Modjo, My Latest Novel, Mylo, Múm, Nathan Fake (2), New Young Pony Club, Nick Drake, OutKast, Quasimoto, RJD2, Reinhard Voigt, Ricardo Villalobos (2), Sebo K, Smog, Squarepusher (2), Sufjan Stevens, Superpitcher (2), Swod, The Arcade Fire, The Boats, The Decemberists, The Future Sound of London, The Higher Intelligence Agency, The Knife, The Orb, The Roots, The Strokes, The Underdog Project, Tiefschwarz, Tiga, Trentemoller, Ulrich Schnauss, Vitalic, Von Von Von

I wondered why the artists weren’t linked, then I read this, which explains what happens when a scripting meme like this goes ‘viral’…
