Tainted Love: V-Day Music Lessons, With a Playlist

Galore_Mag_Aaliyah

“What music do you listen to?” is a stressful question—whoever’s asking is definitely going to judge you. But it’s also a good question, because it’s a great way for me to judge the shit out of someone else. So how should you answer? I thought this over while inhaling mass amounts of G-Pen weed smoke (when I’m at the wisest) and laid out your best response options:

1. Answer humorously. This is my go-to. I say, “I’m forever a fan of angsty rocker lesbian music—Ani DiFranco, Cat Power, that’s my shit!”. The interrogator always laughs and moves on.

2. Name three artists or songs you’re listening to often. This is my boyfriend’s move. He’ll usually choose from three differing genres (to ensure no pigeonholing), i.e. “the new Aphex Twin album, Miley Cyrus, and Charles Manson”.

Anyway, we’re in love and have very enjoyable sex. We’ll probably bang to this over Valentine’s Day weekend. You should too. Don’t forget the G-Pen.
