    My wife does't like jazz at all - for her it is all about the vocals. I do love vocals - however the lyrics really tire me and prevent me from listing to vocals over and over. I can listen to jazz over and over and get lost in it - she cannot.

    I like to be by myself when I listen to music - my time away.

    Anything by someone who "can't sing", e.g. Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Van Morrison, Tom Waits...

    Sorry, that's not a "piece of music", but you get the idea.

    Strangely, she doesn't react negatively to the Incredible String Band, unlike our sons.

    I'm on a Bill Evans journey it seems - bought a few albums couple of years ago - and recently read about him - and watched the great documentary - Bill Evans Time Remembered - awesome that it was on Amazon prime. Really great. Before the documentary I received - live at the village vanguard vinyl box set - been listening to that for the last few days.

    Used to be with a girl that extremely hated and made fun of me for liking 80s new wave music like early Duran Duran, Japan, a-ha et al.

    Points for abhoring with irrational zeal!

    I wouldn't say I love Pink Floyd and Rush but I like them both quite a bit. (more Floyd than Rush) but my wife will not under any circumstances tolerate me listening to either without serious protest.

    Funny - my wife and I fight a bit about AC/DC - she was fortunate enough as a teen to see the Back in Black concert (80's) - I'm a Bon Scott AC/DC fan - not so much for new AC/DC though I find them 'OK'.

    I'm always trying to play If you want blood you've got it - but she wants Back n Black.

    Understandably I'm single (Open to offers). My cat isn't too fond of Man on The Silver Mountain by Rainbow.
