Hahaha, intense title but i had a thought/question i wanted to run across my fellow P FRIENDS. (sorry if i rant for a while, but i know y'all will listen..its just im a little buzzed and this is something i want to get off my chest with people who genuinely care about music)
What do you do if the person your dating/ starting to date/ or even your bf/gf doesn't like underground at all or just really hasn't heard it or been into it?
The reason i bring this up is because being in a new relationship, i've ran into this issue.
My ex LOVEEEED underground (we discovered it together) we went to concerts together, listened to it all day, found new songs together etc. It was something I loved about him because it brought us SO close.
People who have a passion for music (you all) know that music IS a huge deal...is it worth giving up a relationship or fighting over? not necessarily, but i honestly stopped dating people because we couldn't match up on music at all... makes really sh!tty car rides, smoke sessions, just lounging around and listening to music etc...
well case in point... I have a new boyfriend and he is in a fraternity (which is a huge influence on him cause all his bros listen to typical main stream (in MY opinion of course) like Wiz, lil wayne, even *rolls eyes* songs that Kay perry sings and techno ish sh!t like that...he has even admitted being in a frat influenced him because back in LA he never listened to the more "pop" like music.
The thing is, he knows im OBSESSED with underground and 90s hip hop, especially stuff from the g-funk era like Warren g, dr. dre, snoop etc.
Well hes from LA so he loves Dre and sh!t and one thing i noticed is that when were in the car, he will put on hella dre and stuff i love which i think is nice that he tries to listen to what i love, but as well something that he likes as well...
well when it comes to underground, he hasn't really gotten into it BUT a major breakthrough came through the other day..
I never told him, but the first underground song i EVER discovered and liked was "Silly Puddy" by zion i n the grouch, and the other day when i was listening to my phone, he was like "i like that song" and it was "silly puddy" i thought it was funny cause that was my first song i discovered. I see he is trying to find things that he likes and he even went through the new Zion I and grouch CD that i had in his car.. so far he only REALLY liked one song that was on it, but he found it himself and its nice.
I see him trying and its nice that hopefully maybe one day hell really appreciate it and get out of this mainstream BS LOL. but anyways, back to my point... how do you guys handle it? does it matter to you? do you introduce them and keep playing it all the time, or what?
I try to find some underground songs that are a little more "mainstream" to try and reel him in slowly, and its sort of working :-p
