A Taste for Music
Although we might all share a common interest in movies, though we may share a common sensibility in books, though we all might find ourselves watching TV shows like A PLACE OF EXECUTION or HOMICIDE or THE WIRE, our taste in music is probably the least predictable.
Is music the most age-dependent media? Does anyone over a certain age listen to certain types of music? My husband attended a classical music event today (Sunday) and not a single person was under age fifty. I bet a concert of current hiphop or alternative music would yield the same inverted results. Do you have an ear for any genre of music? Is anyone open to all music? Are you more circumspect in musical recommendations than book or movie or TV shows?
