    Mine has terrific taste in music, much better than mine, really. Over the years she's introduced me to great artists--J.J. Cale, Tom Petty, Jackson Browne, Guy Clark, Gary Moore, John Fullbright--that I'd missed, having my head pretty much in my pocket where those things are concerned. And when I heard (late as always) about Lucinda Williams, for instance, and Joe Bonamassa, for another, next thing I know the place is full of CDs of theirs. She's been on a Don Williams kick lately.

    She takes us to good concerts, too: CSN, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Lucinda, Bob Dylan, Dwight Yoakam, James Taylor. . . .

    I'm a lucky man.

    My wife listens to a lot of music that is one Mac and vocals that are completely modified on the same Mac.

    She still listens to music from traditional musical instruments but the music where the percussion is nothing but Oontz Oontz Oontz Oontz......for 4 minutes is not my thing.

    Ha! I knew it - no other way that could have been otherwise. Very cool!

    In my case, I'm a major Japanese indies fan, particularly Shibuya-kei stuff, so when we were still over there I was introducing mine to a ton of bands she had never heard of, but she took to it pretty well. Here's a couple from each end of that spectrum we like:





    Also, I'm a big fan of many of the mid-late 60's GS bands, so that was another thing that she got into then as well.

    My wife is also Japanese and was a teen in the '80s, but she listened to Ratt, Kixx, Bon Jovi and Duran Duran.

    The missus generally leaves the music to me, or just leaves, but when left to her own devices . . . we eventually get Jefferson Starship tunes that were once popular on commercial radio.

    It escapes my understanding, but not my hate.

    My wife has an affinity toward Folk Rock from 70's; mostly, Harry Chapin and Simon and Garfunkel. I'll add some Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and The Band to the mix and we can listen all night! :)

    I trained my wife pretty well. I turned her onto the blues, which she now listens to more than I do. We both love R&B, especially Motown and Northern Soul. We both appreciate doo-wop from having grown up in that era.

    She hates Springsteen, and I’m a big Bruce fan. She likes Adele, which I don’t mind some of her efforts. She has adult alternative radio on quite a bit, and that becomes repetitive for me.

    All in all, we share music fairly evenly. If I could only get her to at least appreciate straight jazz. She will never understand surf music.
