OmegaMom has a "fine sense of pitch"
Which means that taking this test, to determine if you are tone deaf, was extremely painful. I was gritting my teeth at each sour note. Unfortunately for me, hitting the "NO!" button did not stop the "music". OmegaMom's score: 24 out of 26 tunes correctly identified as "played correctly" versus "played incorrectly". Ouch, ouch, ouch. It's like biting into a luscious, juicy, ripe pear, only to suddenly hit a nail. Please note that the test is, like many USA tests, highly keyed into Western sensibilities and makes a lot of assumptions about what constitutes "familiar tunes". (We have had a run on luscious, juicy, ripe pears at the local Safeway recently. Oh. My. God. I have died and gone to heaven. Not a single nail or worm amongst them.)
