Have you ever gotten someone interested in music they might not have otherwise liked (what was it)?

Asked by Dansedescygnes (2881points) March 26th, 2009

I was listening to this piece (“Gloria” from Misa Criolla by Ariel Ramirez) in my car:

My friend loved it and asked me to rip the mp3 of it and give it to him. I think that’s so cool. I would never have pictured him liking Spanish classical choral music. And of course numerous times my friends have inspired me to like music I wasn’t that interested in before.

I have gotten a lot of my friends that would usually make fun hip-hop music, to listen to and actually enjoy it. I just sit them down and talk some things out with them.

I’ve turned 2 people onto DMB, my mom and my best friend.

My mom was stuck listening to them on a roadtrip a few years back, and although she speaks almost no english, loved their music and remarked how much she enjoyed their “rhythm.”

Recently I got my best friend into DMB. He’s never been into them before, but was blown away with Dave’s mad guitar skills while watching a DVD of the Central Park Concert.

I introduced my husband to the Decemberists and the Weepies. In turn, he gave me the Foo Fighters and Ludo.
