Music Monday ~ Meet the Genres

At Quora last week, someone posed a question along these lines: If music genres were people what would they be like? I'll have a bash at this one, thought your friendly neighbourhood blogger. This is what I came up with:

Classical - Tall, handsome gentleman, polite and charming, with a beautifully dressed lady on his arm.

Swing & Big Band - Clean-cut happy-go-lucky guy in blazer and slacks, will buy drinks all round at the bar, girl friend is a leggy blonde who loves to socialise.

American Standards - A bit of a solitary nerd, horn-rimmed spectcles, always scibbling on the back of tickets and cigarette packets.

Jazz - African American couple, moody, changeable, charismatic, but for outsiders, not easy to understand.

Blues - Solitary, gloomy African American guy - tends to study his own navel a lot.

Early Rock and Roll - Teen school friends, frequent the coffee bars, a bit full of themselves- they think they've invented the wheel.

Psychadelic 60s
- Good looking young couple, long flowing hair, he bearded, she bra-less, both smoking - something.

Country - A couple who've been through the mill, romantically and in life generally. They drive an old truck & go to church of a Sunday.

Folk - A youngish couple who have an oddly old fashioned look, a bit rumpled, a bit unkempt, yet they always retain a certain classiness.

anyjazz ~ Yes, I thought so too. :)

Our preconceived ideas are interesting. Mine have been tossed more than a few times.

I remember one time when every week I attended a different Beethoven symphony in Toronto and at an intermission talking to this dreadlocked Bob Marley type who shared my passion.

Wisewebwoman ~ Oh yes, I agree in relation to people who enjoy the different genres - but I was thinking in relation to personifying the genres themselves - daft idea, but fun to imagine!
