So I was having a discussion about my favourite song and a couple people said that a person's favourtie song says something about them.
Do you agree?
For example this is my favourite song: (they said that the song shows I feel upset and annoyed on the inside as well as feeling lonely)
What are your opinions?

I feel like I'm really spamming these threads with this song but it's the most beautiful thing ever made. Music has never made me cry, but I've come damn close with this one.
But if it says something about me? I mean, the lyrics are in Icelandic and apart from the few lines I've memorised and the few basic Icelandic words I understand I have no idea what they mean. Musically I think the only thing it says about me is that I love post-rock.0

I would say perhaps if your SO was listening to some misogynistic or racist or songs about killing and murder would I be like, woah, this is your favorite song, why and what's wrong with you, but I personally have been in some great places in my life, very happy, and yet at the moment, my favorite song was something sad and emotional. I think that's more of a testament to the artist in evoking a feeling or something perhaps you related to once, rather then a prescription for your overall personality from day to day. I think perhaps you'd have to look at someone's entire overall collection to glimpse that.0
