There is this older man that I kind of admire from afar. I by no means want to be with said man, but I do respect him and find him quite attractive. Well, a little Ipod listening party of sorts took place recently. He plugged his in and out came the poorest excuse for musical taste I’ve ever heard: YMCA, Abba and various television show theme songs (COPS, Happy Days, Full House, etc). His playlist went on for hours.
What the hell? I never thought about what kind of music this man might like, but in retrospect, it seems as though the Rolling Stones or maybe even Rush would have suited him. His horrid selection of tunes burst my crush bubble instantly.
Now, I don’t really care what kind of music my significant other listens to. It’s cool if we like the same bands and all, but I like to think I’m open enough to listen to and appreciate different music as well. I’m big on making mix CDs, so if we can introduce one another to new music, then all the better. But TV theme songs? How can I take this full grown man seriously?
Does music matter to you? Am I an elitist bitch? I feel like I’m setting myself up for insults here, but I don’t think I could ever date a guy that had Creed (who are getting back together, by the way! Is there no God?), Nickelback, Yanni or 98 Degrees or something on his Ipod.
