It’s not like there’s not enough Star Wars branded things around, right? Apparently not: Spotify is joining Facebook, Google and others with a just launched site that uses The Force to help you find your Star Wars match.

You’ll sign in with your Spotify account, then the service determines which character you are from the films based on your listening habits as well as a custom playlist.

Apparently because I listen to Teen Pop, Dance Pop and Contemporary music I’m a match for Luke Skywalker, which gave me a customized playlist for to match his character.

That playlist, which was really just full of hits like Sorry by Justin Bieber, is what Luke Skywalker would love while jamming out in space, or whatever.

If you listen to the playlist you might notice a little easter egg in the play bar
