Di, host of Pensivity101, is once again standing in for Melanie, of Sparks from a Combustible Mind, for today’s Truthful Tuesday prompt. This week Di is asking about musical preferences. She wants to know…
Do you enjoy the same kind of music as your spouse/partner/significant other. If not, do you listen to your own preferences in another room or using headphones, or not bother?
My answer is yes, my wife and I enjoy the same kind of music, which is rock ‘n roll music. Specifically the genre known as “classic rock.” It covers around two and a half decades, from the 60s through the 70s and into the early to mid 80s. And, for the most part, we like the same musical artists from that era. It’s what keeps our marriage together.
When we’re at home we have the SiriusXM Classic Vinyl channel on the television for background music when we’re not actually watching something on TV. In the car, we have the same SiriusXM Classic Vinyl station tuned in, although sometimes we will listen to my iTunes on my iPhone via our car’s Apple Play connection. And, of course, my iTunes collection is, for the most part, classic rock.
