For now why not take our 'Surf1' quiz? Find out which part of the song you are!
If you were a musical instrument what would you be?
1 ) A bass - it’s hard to make mistakes on the ‘big kids’ guitar
2 ) The drums! Pow!
3 ) A guitar of course! I’m no dweeb
4 ) An even louder guitar!!! (Sorry. More instruments don’t exist)
You wake up. Do you:
1) Go back to sleep and continue that weird sexy dream about the secret world of Alex Mac.
2) Make breakfast
3) Wait for the demon who sits on your chest every night while you sleep to dissipate so you can get out of bed
4) Jump out of bed and run to the tram. You're late for work! Again!
Surfing to you is:
1) A form of escapism. You like to be alone with the dolphin world to get away from the daily turn of the gear.
2) Your mantra: the howl of the ocean tingles your every whisker, you sleep on the sand, and sea salt tastes just like mommy’s tears
3) What the cooler, stronger, more progressive girls do
4) “Breadsticks” in parseltongue
Ok, imagine yourself as your favourite aquatic animal. It’s a stingray? Good. What star sign are you?
1) Aquarius rising
2) Capricorn/Gemini cusp
4) Nihilist baby
Now add up all the numbers of your answers and see what part of the song you are:
4 - 7
You’re the INTRO!
An early riser with something to prove, you’re fiery, organised and like punching the air in the shower a few times to charge up that aggressive politeness you’re so famous for. You don’t wait for the drum-roll, the drum-roll waits for you! Unlike the rest of your friends and family... not that you have a chip on your shoulder or anything. Why would you? I don’t know, maybe it’s the fact that every time you get to your dinner plans you’re the first one there? Is it just you or are your friends real assholes? You even brought wine! Just once you wish you could be on fucking garlic bread duty - I bet tonight’s GBD won’t even show up. Another grandparent in hospital? How many fucking grandparents do you even have garlic bread guy?? This whole narrative is REALLY starting to lose credibility man.
8 - 11
You’re the VERSE(s)!
What’s the most important part of a song? What’s the most important part of a person’s LIFE? It’s arguably the verse! You’re the main course of a three course meal! You’re the only course of a lethargic Wednesday night viewing of postcards with Mum and Dad! You’re the sausage in the bun! The bacon in the BLT! You’re the continuous stream of meat metaphors in this personality summary! You’re shy and unassuming, but gracious and heroic! You let your friends shine and your enemies also shine. Everyone wants a juicy piece of you and your time and you’ll be damned if you don’t cave into every single one of their demands with a fake smile and a deeply suppressed sigh.
12 - 15
You’re the CHORUS!
Everyone knows that one person who’s always repeating the same stories and subsists on a diet of exclusively potato foods - It’s you! You dress well and have a cute but abrasive falsetto. You're emotional and serious but nearly always never not fun to be around! Your friends sigh with relief when you arrive at an awkward social gathering and sigh with relief when you leave. You like to consider yourself the most important person in the room - which is especially easy when you are! Right?? Right????? Look me in the eye and say it. Mum? Are you even listening???
You’re the SOLO!
Jesus you’re cool! But not nearly as cool as you 7 seconds from now! Sunglasses indoors, surfboard on the roof-racks, somehow pulling off vests - you’re a miracle of modern suavity.
You tear through the fabric of life like a spoon through pre-microwaved butter, taking no prisoners and never stopping for a lunch break! You’re that employee that makes everyone else feel bad for not putting in overtime even though there is nothing to gain over-working yourselves for the cruel despot of capitalistic greed! Your labour is stolen daily by the bourgeoisie for their own selfish desires! You are the proletariat and the lumpenproletariat! Seize the means of production!!! Unite!!!!
