Dear insanely cool boyfriend with almost unimpeachable musical taste

I know that for the last couple of years, I’ve kind of glazed over whenever you mentioned how much you like Engine Down. Today, however, my iPod served them up at random, and I actually kind of really like the band. At least the song I heard. Which I don’t remember the name of.

I’m lucky you put up with my somewhat schizy attitude when it comes to new music, not to mention that you tolerate how I glaze over while you tell me about some great new band you like, then deciding a year later that they’re my new favorite band. (sc. Slow Jets, Beauty Pill, Folksongs from the Afterlife, the Wrens.) I think this is why I stopped trying to concoct annual best-of lists — my “discoveries” are becoming increasingly outdated.

Still, I hope you never stop trying to share your enthusiasms.
