Phil & Mel In The Morning

Weekdays 6:00AM-10:00AM

Two questions: 1) What’s your favorite type of music? 2) How much money do you make in a year?

Those questions don’t seem to be related but, according to TD Ameritrade, your taste in music might determine your income. After surveying 1,500 people, they found that classical music fans bring home the biggest paychecks. They also feel more financially secure and better prepared for retirement. Here’s the full breakdown:

Average annual income based on musical preference

Classical – $114,000
Electronic – $92,000
Rap/Hip-hop – $69,000
’80s/’90s – $67,000
Hard rock – $65,000
Pop/Top 40 – $61,000
Country – $58,000

So what’s it going to be: Beethoven, Beyonce, or Blake Shelton?
