Writer's Block: Love is deaf

Could you spend the rest of your life with someone who had horrific taste in music? How important is it to you to share your love of music with a good friend or romantic partner?

No. I spent a year sharing a dorm room who was way into Bone Thugs & Harmony and similarly horrific shit and that was plenty well enough. The only way I could drown it out, in order to do homework for example, was to listen to Michael Nyman soundtracks on headphones. To this day the soundtrack to The Piano reminds me of the horrors of bad music.
