Whenever the question “What’s your favorite type of music?” comes up and I hear the answer, “I like everything.”
I can’t help to think that’s probably not true!
I’ve been taking a survey (in life) along the way and I bet I can prove that answer untrue with three questions.
- Do you like Country Music?
- Do you like Death Metal?
- Do you like Christian Rock?
These three simple catagories asked in a row lets people know that they really didn’t mean EVERYTHING.
Of course there are 1,264 micro genres of music to list…..
I am a big fan of music therefore I understand the tendency to say you like it all however in reality I haven’t met anyone that likes it all.
For example- I like Electronic music, Alternative Rock, Salsa music, Afro music, and Pop music. I like Indie Rock and Reggae and Classical music too. I do not like Modern Country, Heavy Metal, or Christian Rock.
I think a better answer to the “What kind of music do you like ?” question is- almost everything or most everything. You could list your top five favorites.
Saying you like everything just isn’t true. It’s okay to be more accurate and thoughtful with the answer especially for the people who are listening to the words you are saying and taking them at face value . Thanks in advance for considering a more accurate answer. I look forward to continuing my survey!
