Do you judge people based on their taste in music? How has musical taste either enhanced or detracted from your relationships (including friends, roommates, and romantic partners)?
As someone whose life is mainly composed of sitting in my room with my Media player on blast, I have to say that in some ways, I do judge people based on what they like to listen to. Now call me wierd or something of the sort, but I love music for its lyrics and the literature. The symbolism and story that is has to tell. So any song, regardless of genre, that sounds good and has great meaning or has a wide window for interpretation, is a good song to me. I have noticed a pattern in a way I choose my friends. If I can sit on the phone and do nothing but sing with one another while my media player is on shuffle, not pertaining to one genre, but the various ones in my playlist, well... I have to say that it a truly magnificent human being, and those are the kind of people I hang around with. So the answer is yes, music effects my relations, but for the most part, it only enhances. With music one can go nowhere but up.
