For years, it has been a known fact in this house that Don and I have terrible taste in music. According to my stepsons anyway. And while I can't vouch for Don (Guns N Roses doesn't really appeal to me either) I always found this ridiculous. I have great taste in music. I just happen to prefer music from the late 90s early 2000s. Is that so wrong? Doesn't everyone have a preference for the music they enjoyed in high school? In any event, I've always maintained that the music I do enjoy from that time period is pretty dang good.
The other night I had my ipod on in the kitchen while I was cooking dinner. I was listening to a playlist I made 5 years ago, and I still listen to frequently, that had some Chili Peppers, Weezer, Live, Tool, etc., on it. Marcus was wandering in out of the kitchen while I cooked and every time would comment on what a "great song this is." I rolled my eyes. He concluded that at some point in time I have managed to "acquire" a good taste in music. No, I informed him, you've finally managed to realize what GOOD music sounds like! So I was quite flattered when he went into our itunes database to upload the songs from my playlist on to his ipod.
I may not be the "coolest" stepmom on the block, but I guess I can take a bit of solace knowing that my taste in music isn't entirely awful....though I must admit, he wasn't in the room when Salt n Peppa came on....seriously though, how can you NOT enjoy the song "Shoop"????
