The Question Club
I was thinking about how people's (especially young-ish people) style of dress, corresponds with or is associated with them listening to a certain type of music (indie/emo kids, goths, punk rockers etc).
But what about 'ordinarily' dressed people? The average, everyday, person - do you judge them as having certain musical proclivities, or do you simply not associate them with music at all?
What clothing style/music taste stereotypes do you have?
At first glance, I know I see converse, black hair and tight jeans (or is it baggy jeans now? My fashion knowledge is lacking) and think 'indie', or the guy walking past with baggy everything and a slouched, staggered stride and feel the rap/hip hop vibe. Sure on the second thought I dismiss my assumptions, but they're there. But when I try and pinpoint (or stereotype) say, the bus driver (an ordinary-looking middle-aged guy),or the 40ish woman behind the shop till, or business-people, then I draw a blank.
And really, these questions are really a front for my main one, which has been annoying me for a while, after some people expressed an inordinate amount of surprise during a music-related conversation.
( Based on appearances, what music (if any) would you say I listened to?Collapse )
