Today’s daily prompt asks us what role music plays in our lives.
A while ago, my friend sj wrote a blog entry creating a musical rainbow out of song titles with colors in them. She asked us what songs we would have included in our rainbows. My smart ass answer was Colorblind by Counting Crows. I’m not big into music. I like what I like, but I rarely explore new music.
I listen to music when I work (usually classical), and I like to sing to/with my toddler, but generally, music plays a small role. My life has a minimalistic score. It’s not a musical. The last concert I went to was probably about 8 years ago when I saw Flogging Molly. Not counting when I took my kid to see Rocknocerous.
My husband’s taste in music sucks. As I said, I’m not so big into music, but even I know that his taste sucks. He likes Aqua and Britney Spears. He explained to me that this is because he’s not from the US, so the only American music he hears is what’s really popular at the time. But his sisters said that was bullshit. Just because they hear something, doesn’t mean they have to like it.
