Music is a big deal to me. It can trigger so many moods and emotions, slow down time, or speed it up. Which type of music depends on the day, but I'm generally a rock kind of girl.
In Sweden we have something called "dansbandsmusik" - I don't have a good translation for it, but I hate it. Refrains can still sneak into my mind and replay themselves at the most inappropriate moments. Weirdest thing.
Like this one. I can't stand this song, but I hear it in my head all the time.
I think my subconscious likes to torture me, hahaha!
Here in the USA, I hate country music. I think it's related to the "dansbandsmusik."
Unfortunately, one of my neighbors loves country - especially the really self-pitying kind with lots of steel guitars and violins. He likes to play it really loud outdoors. You know, to make sure he can hear it in case he goes inside and accidentally closes the door...
Jazz music makes me nervous. It's because of the drummers, they're so syncopated and think they're really cool, but I can almost feel my blood pressure rising. lol!
I also often say that I hate rap music. That turned out to not be entirely true.
Me, in the car. "I really hate rap music."
Husband, "So, why are you listening to this?"
Me, "What? Oh no, this is Mike Shinoda. He doesn't count. I love Mike Shinoda."
Five minutes later.
"I thought you said you hate rap music."
"This is Prince and the New Power Generation. Doesn't count. They had melodies and stuff."
Five minutes later, I'm singing along to "Cleaning out my closet" all happy.
Husband, "Again, you say you hate rap music."
"Mm-hm. But I kind of like Eminem. At least some Eminem songs. Catchy refrains. I don't like the kind the neighbor kids play. You know, a guy talking to a bass drum."
Husband rolls his eyes.
Yeah, I'm getting old. Clearly!
What music do you like? What types of music can't you stand?
