I agree it's also true with Hot Rods. How many dames do you see at car shows. Very few, unless they're dragged there by their old man!I always thought it was funny to see women at football, baseball or hockey games. But they do go. That leads to my next question, what the hell do they do like?
It's true. BUT I found the Holy grail. My wife is passionate about music. Not in the knowledge of track variations or catalogue numbers etc but in the sheer variety of stuff she likes to listen to. Our tastes pretty much line up. We both have no idea what goes on at the Grammy awards. No idea who's hip.
My tastes go from extreme to extreme. From 60s pop to prog to metal to punk to noise to hillbilly music and all points in between. And shes just as into it all even before we met. We've NEVER said to each other "could you take that bloody racket off".
In my day, if Dad screamed turn that racket off, it was a sign of you having good taste. I remember watching The Smiths on Top of the Pops , Morrisey had a tree or something sticking out his back-side, I wasn't sure if i should like him or the Smiths until my Dad muttered , Oh for Christs Sake! i knew then that The Smiths were ok. Whenever The Sex Pistols appeared on Top of the Pops my dad would complain again, Oh for Christs sake , i'm not watching this, i'm going to the kitchen to wash the Dishes, again a sign that The Pistols was exactly the type of band a young person should like. I despair of today's youth, did you know that some parents go to the same concert as their kids(ed Sheeran , Adele ) for some reason i could never think this would have happened in my day when there was a great abyss between what kids and parents liked, come on Dad hurry up we are going to the Ramones. By the way you are indeed so lucky to have found the "mythical "Holy grail in a girl that likes the same music as you. I'm so envious.
As a girl. I love watching sport, BBC 4, all music genres and constantly have the radio on. I also watch some sci fi hate reality shows. Going to gigs is an issue due to the expense.
Parents hated modern music anything after Gracie Fields baffled my Dad and watching TOTP as a kid during the glam and punk era was something to behold. I cannot quote sleeve numbers of lp's but the joy of when or where I first heard a track still remains.
I'm like Rocky. My first Beatle LP was Meet the Beatles on Capitol in early 1964. Actually, it wasn't mine, but I lived in the same household as my brother, whose album it was. He might still have it, but by now it probably sounds like a bowl of Rice Krispies with all the snap, crackle, and pop.
