How long do you
listen to a song
before you dismiss it?
Do you wait for the chorus? The first lyric? Do you even make it past the first note?
I’m finding my musical tolerance is getting much better as I grow older. I’m much more accepting of music that doesn’t fit my specific approval criteria than I was in the past and have even come to strongly embrace genres I once passionately disdained (I’m so addicted to 70s dance music, you could say I have a fever–a disco fever if you will).
What I once found cheesy, I still find cheesy, but now I’m capable of finding that cheesiness charming or even inspirational. I’d like to think this is a sign of maturity, but I just purchased, watched and enjoyed King Kong Vs Godzilla on Blu-ray, so it’s probably something else.
How about you? Have yours tastes changed? Or are you as musically militant now as you were in your teens?
