Dear Marge, I am writing to you because I think I may have a problem. I like to think I am open minded, inclusive and liberal guy. Why, some of my best friends have music collections that consist of Adele’s last album and Abba’s Greatest Hits, they even like Ed Sheeran.
And yet, yesterday while listening to the dancer Wayne McGregor’s very Afterword friendly choices on Desert Island Discs, he introduced one of his choices as”George Michael’s cover of the Roberta Flack song First Time I ever Saw Your Face“. No its not I mumbled to myself, and from that point onward he was dead to me.
Please can you help me: am I a music snob?
