Truthful Tuesday: Musical Tastes

Di asks an interesting question today: Do you enjoy the same kind of music as your spouse/partner/significant other?

We’re compatible on some of it: Mary likes music from the ’60’s and ’70’s, especially Motown. She has also said that she likes some smooth jazz and fingerstyle guitar. The difference is not so much that she doesn’t like the music: it’s that she has sensitive ears and the music irritates them. I do my best to keep things quiet for her, meaning I listen through headphones when on the computer, and while I’m getting my leg compressed I keep the volume down on my phone and/or my Bluetooth speaker. The white noise I play at night doesn’t seem to bother her, though. The only white noise that bothers her is the authentic white noise, which sounds like the static that used to happen after a TV station went off the air. I admit, it’s a little harsh…

She also doesn’t care for the ringtones I pick sometimes. This was my ringtone for about 30 minutes a couple of weeks ago…

Okay, so it’s a little much…

  1. My hubby and I both love music and have the same taste in music, as well. The 60s, 70s, and 80s are our favorite decades and rock and roll is our favorite genre. I can listen to music anywhere any time of the day.


  2. I like many kinds of music. My wife has very limited musical tastes and doesn’t enjoy hearing a lot of what I like. If we’re in the car together then I’ll usually keep the music limited to classical. She doesn’t seem to mind when I listen to that.
