Writer's Block: Bitter aftertaste

Do you judge people based on their taste in music? How has musical taste either enhanced or detracted from your relationships (including friends, roommates, and romantic partners)?


Reading through the answers to this question, I discovered that most people don't. I wish I could say I was in that same category. But I'm just not. Music is such a huge part of my life. HUGE, as you guys know. I teach it; I play it; I read about it; I listen to it; I watch DVDs of it; I analyze it; And I just used more semi-colons there than I have in my entire life.

Anyway, music really is a huge part of my life. And I do have pretty particular tastes in music. My main interests are Classical and Irish traditional, though I enjoy other kinds of music. I don't think I judge people as in thinking they are somehow less than me, but I do find myself cringing over some people's musical tastes and realizing I'm totally not open-minded about music.

That being said, this is SO MUCH MORE important for a relationship than friendship. I can roll my eyes over some of the things my friends like and just choose not to listen to it. I'm sure some feel the same about the music I enjoy and love. But when it comes to a relationship I've always needed someone who not only loves the music I do, but plays it and really knows it. David knows quite a bit about classical, though he leaves the more theoretical and analytical stuff up to me. But he does know a lot about chord progressions and he enjoys the music. He REALLY knows Irish trad music, which I picked up in 2003 and continue to learn more and more about. We click musically and that's important to me!
