What's your guilty dis-pleasure? The thing you know you should like, but you really don't?
For me it's the music of Richard Wagner. I like his overtures, like Ride of the Valkyries and Lohengrin, and Tanhaüser, but get a few minutes into the opera and it's a real snoozefest, imo. I studied music in college, and Wagner created a lot of the techniques we take for granted today. Like when you hear two particular notes over and over again, you know a shark is coming? (You know the sound I mean--the Jaws theme) That's called a leitmotif, and Wagner invented that.
What about you? Do you have something that you know you ought to really enjoy, but for whatever reason you don't?
Being able to retire and not looking forward to it! LOL
