Basically, which Dave Vanian and Captain are you? Or, you know, which songs should you be listening to right now? (Well, all of them, but here's a few.)
You're loud, proud, and love to be the center of attention. So this choice shouldn't surprise you--because it's all about you--and who you want to be the loud "Neat Neat Neat."
Virgos are extremely organized and pragmatic, sometimes to a point where they hide their emotions, which is why you are "I Just Can't Be Happy Today."
Libras are social, gentle, diplomatic people--you are the person others confide in, because they feel comfortable around you. You are "New Rose."
Scorpios always get a bad rap for being the "crazy" sign, but it's more that they are intense--and crave intimacy. You are "Eloise."
The centaur is vivacious, open-minded and hearted, Sags are also philosophers and creative types, which is why you are "Love Song."
Capricorns are often planners--they seek stability and comfort, sometimes at the risk of going the safe route, which is why you are "See Her Tonite."
You're definitely an independent person--one full of unique ideas--and you often are free-spirited and wild, so you are "Anti-Pope."
Pisces are all about their connections with other people--they love the comfort of others, and can trust pretty easily. You are "Melody Lee."
You're outgoing, bubbly, and often passionate about what you want. You are "Smash It Up."
You can be a bit stubborn and afraid to show your emotions, since you often strive to be levelheaded and pragmatic. You are "Jet Boy Jet Girl."
You feel your emotions very intensely--some say you're moody because you often change your mind or seem indecisive. You are "Nasty."
You're the creative type, and usually silently moody and introspective. You are "Shadow of Love."
