Right through the heart.  It's dangerous.

Not so. My claim, my hunch if you prefer, is based on experience. Coupling with someone who doesn't like the same kind of music is a big mistake, betokens ever-widening power struggles in the relationship, is the correlative of a vast divide which can be ignored, managed, or negotiated only for the short term. It always signals a distance. Yet there is no arguing about that I guess. We'll have to agree to disagree.
