3. You know "You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch" by heart.

4. You can beat a piano going down

5. You constantly find yourself singing either Do, Fa, or Sol.

6. Your falsetto starts at A below middle C.

9. You don't consider "Bass 1's" to be "real basses"

10. You have hair in places it normally shouldn't be
