So what’s your partner’s taste in music (aside from the commonalities)? A little Elton John or Neil Diamond?
Well she’s into alot of 80’s music, alot has to do with nostalgia and what she listened to growing up. Which some I like, however others I don’t. Nothing against the person but I’m not a big fan of George Michael’s music and of course Wham. She loves him. However he has done some nice tracks.
Alot of the eighties tracks she likes makes me cringe, maybe because I heard them so much as they were the popular music of the time. I’m just not a big fan of that style. I’m not saying it’s bad. Just doesn’t really do anything for me. I reckon if she was to hear that style for the first time today she probably wouldn’t like it or definitely not as much. Nostalgia.
Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, Billy Ocean, Mary J Blige(Her favortie at emotional times), Maxwell, Prince and of course Michael Jackson to name a few. As I say not bad artists but just not for me. She loves Queen, which I can listen to and always thought they were great live performers. There are many more some of which I can listen to and alot I can’t. However none are on my mp3.
I’ve been a proud father of a beautiful little girl since the true millenium. My only advice to you is the following :
1. A month before the due date, sleep as much as possible. You won’t get a proper night’s sleep for the next couple years after.
2. Fill his/her world with beautiful sights and sounds.
3. Enjoy the bliss of love.
I will try to get as much sleep as possible. However I’m fortunate(well it worked during my old army days when I was on radio stag and now as a driver of HGV’s)that I can power nap 10-15 minutes and feel really refreshed after. I’m not saying it will solve the tiredness issue but I’m hoping it will help and be a least some what beneficial.
We will interact and stimulate the child with as many beautiful things we can. Of course good music and lots time in nature with the system camera to capture those moments. Obviously not going to force anything but certainly will encourage learning music or to be artistic if he/she shows it.
Shit I’m getting way ahead of myself here. The little tyke isn’t even a foetus yet. We have to get past that stage first. For those who have had this experience you probably know what is going on in my head. A million thoughts.
Thanks for the advice Neuro.
