Truthful Tuesday 13th September

Melanie is still taking a much needed rest, so I’m here again with Truthful Tuesday.
The concept is quite simple in that I ask a question and you reply honestly and truthfully.
You can either leave your reply in the comments or write your own post and pingback to this one, then leave a link in the comments so that I can find it.
My question this week is to do with music.

Do you enjoy the same kind of music as your spouse/partner/significant other.
If not, do you listen to your own preferences in another room or using headphones, or not bother?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    My SO doesn’t like any music, so I mostly listen in the car. He’s such a little oddball, but I still love him because he’s so cute and furry πŸ™‚

    I and my husband have widely divergent taste in music. He likes old Indian songs while I like Pakistani pop, and English songs, old and new. So we listen of our favs in separate rooms. I the car we take turns. 😜

  3. Nope, Not Pam says:

    Hubby hates the music I listen to, and I hate the stuff he plays. We compromise and listen to iheart 80s.

    My ex-wife and I had very different tastes in music. We would occasionally meet in the middle – Fleetwood Mac, for example – but otherwise it was like two different worlds. My headphones got a lot of use: I’ve seen loads of episodes of Dallas, but from under the safety of the music in my head, so I didn’t know what was being said on screen! And before you ask, no, that wasn’t the reason for our divorce 😊

  7. Yes! Bill and I definitely share the same taste in music. Obviously we are from the same generation so we like everything from the 1960s through the 1980s, especially hard rock and heavy metal.

    We’ve gone to more concerts than I can list. In fact, there used to be a place here in NY called The Fillmore East which held concerts every weekend featuring multiple performers and the fabulous Joshua Light Show. The fumes in The Fillmore were pretty heavy, too, so everyone was guaranteed a great time.

    Many acts who had yet to make it big performed at The FE including Joe Cocker, The Byrds, Vanilla Fudge, Aerosmith, Chicago, Santana and a damn good guitar player who called himself Jimi. The tickets were cheap and the entertainment was great; what more could we ask for?

    Music was always on in our houses when we were kids so both of us were also exposed to the standards, big band, swing and songs from the Great American Songbook.

    One genre of music that was on a lot in my childhood home was opera and I became familiar with a lot of classical pieces as well. Bill’s family was not into the high-brow stuff so he never developed a taste for it until our son David became an opera singer. I don’t think Bill will ever love opera but he’ll never miss one of David’s performances.

    A number of years ago we both became country music fans and listened for a few years. Like every grown man in the US and beyond, Bill had a huge crush on a very young and pretty Taylor Swift which he (fortunately) outgrew and we don’t listen to country any longer but if a tune comes on the radio we won’t change it.

    Neither one of us ever got into rap or hip hop so it’s pretty hysterical that I actually wrote a rap poem called Phat Ass Rap!

    Of course we’re both into The Beatles, especially me, and my radios are practically glued to The Beatles Channel on Sirius XM. When I’m not listening to the Beatles, I’ll have on Classic Rock, Deep Tracks or Hair Nation. Bill likes to fiddle with the radio in his car so he’s more aware of the music and performers around today while I remain blissfully ignorant and happy living in the past.

    • Wow, what a variety! I’ve been listening to a personal selection of Power Ballads which included Aerosmith, Bon Jovi,
      Anastasia, Meatloaf, The Scorpions and Cher to name just a few.
      Thanks for the comment.
