When someone asks you a question, do you sing them your answer? Do you start dancing as soon as you hear anything resembling a beat? Have you ever woken up in the morning with a musical instrument still in your hands from the night before? Is there a top hat currently on your head, on the off chance you might need to suddenly produce a rabbit?
