So, What Kind of Music Do You Listen To?
In a couple of words: eclectic and broad ranging....a result of my marriage to Pat most likely. I was raised on musicals: My Fair Lady, Sound of Music, and artists like Andy Williams, Keely Smith, Frank Sinatra, Tennessee Ernie Ford, etc. but was really a Motown and rock and roll listener if I had a choice.
Some how that changed over the years, while rock and roll and Motown are still my preferences, I enjoy opera, classical music, and artists that are softer, Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman, Roger Whittaker, TJB, almost anything Andrew Lloyd Webber, etc. never learned to appreciate country music much. My favorite classical piece is Pachelbel's Canon. I have a CD of nothing but it in different arrangements performed with brass, harpsichord, the London orchestra, Canadian Brass, baroque instruments etc. and second to that "William Tell's Overture."
Pat was very much into jazz, while I appreciate it, not something that I go out of my way to listen to....one of the first things he played for me on his coronet was "Stardust." The problem, I was supposed to recognize it and was totally clueless.....one of the "generation gap" failings. I got the next one..."Happy Birthday."
