2012 In Review: Our Favorite 'My Musical Mind' Surveys

'My Musical Mind' has always been one of our favorite features on MetroLyrics because it offers a rare glimpse into the life of an artist. We love finding out what each musician's handwriting looks like, what lyrics inspire them, and which artists influence them, and lastly, we love seeing their adorable self-portrait doodles! We had plenty of great 'My Musical Mind' quizzes from a variety of artists in 2012, but here are our 3 favorites...


Carly Rae Jepsen


In Carly Rae Jepsen's questionnaire, we found out the decadent treats she brings to the recording studio, the lyrics that changed her life, and the topic she feels she knows the most about: musicals!


Serena Ryder


Folk musician Serena Ryder really surprised us with her 'My Musical Mind' quiz: we didn't expect her to have such artistic talent! Her beautifully illustrated, cut-and-pasted questionnaire proved that creative people are often creative in multiple arenas (and that she likes 90's music as much as we do!).


Owl City


Back in July, Adam Young aka Owl City showed off his scratchy handwriting and revealed that he has a love for junk food, cars, and lyrics by The Script!
