Picking Favourites

Most people are aware of their better half’s favourite everything (okay maybe not everything but almost everything) long before they get married. Michelle and I, are in this regard, playing catch up. Over the past few weeks, I have been constantly badgering my wife on her favourite song, movie star, television programme, advert or anything that comes to mind, for that matter. (Mainly inspired by what is on television or on the radio at that moment in time). I can confess that this is purely for selfish reasons. It allows me to go give a rant long winded back story on why I Want It That Way by the Backstreet Boys was a watershed moment in my personal musical journey in the late 1990s.

Michelle, what is your favourite song by Third Eye Blind (3eb)?

Everyone is different and the world would be an extremely boring place if we all liked the same things. I generally tend to find myself the exception and not the rule when it comes to the herd. My favourite bond is Timothy Dalton, my favourite song by Madonna from her 1980s (and in my opinion best era) is True Blue. The general consensus in each case is Roger Moore and Crazy For You. The topics have varied but then there are many items to discuss in an evening after work, or at the weekend. Favourite Beatles song – for me it has to be Come Together but for Michelle it is Let It Be.

What is the point of this post? To highlight the fact that our differences are what make life interesting. Even if, over time I will begin to forget some of my beloveds favourite things. There was a time in my life, at secondary school when I had to suppress my true feelings towards music (in particular) but generally to conform with everybody else. It was not until I was in college that I truly developed a sense of my own individual identity. Even then, at times it was not enough for my closest friends. Perhaps for most people I am an extremely acquired taste and most would prefer to keep well away.
