Whether it's sports, fine cuisine, fashion or art, we are all aficionados of something. But if there's one specific breed of fanatic that is dear to Sony's heart, it's the diehard music fan. It's safe to assume that most people in the world enjoy listening to music. But for some, listening to their favourite songs isn't just a pastime, it's an essential part of their day — and most importantly, a reflection of their individuality. So, what does it take to be part of this group of devotees? Here are five signs that will indicate whether you can truly call yourself a music fan.
You Have Music Playlists for Everything
