Thread: How important is music in your life?

  1. #1

    How important is music in your life?

    It is indispensable to mine. In any conversation concerning what sense you'd give up if you HAD to, I never even considering hearing.

    I recently read a link that some people perceive and feel music far more deeply than others. It will literally give me goose bumps and overwhelming sense of well being, euphoria, feeling like I can leap tall buildings with a single bound. Seems that is not everyone or even close to it. Even when it's not making me high as a kite, it soothes me, provides an ongoing soundtrack to events throughout my day, is a constant presence. I dream music. It's been this way since I was 8 or so and has only gotten better with age.

    So, how important is music to you and why?

    I can't remember the voices of most of the people I've known that have died, but I remember every one of their favorite songs.

    I have a more take it or leave it approach. Definitely not what you experience, but maybe you are just having mini-flashbacks due to snorting too many marijuanas when you were a youngin.

    It depends on what I'm doing. Nothing like a Saturday morning, cranking up the 60's and 70's music station on Direct TV and cleaning the house. Sitting outside on a sunny Sunday afternoon, we like the old country stuff. Sitting in front of the fireplace on a chilly fall day/evening...gotta be the Rat Pack.

    I think you are looking for a deep answer so I will go deep. I would rather lose my hearing before losing my sight.

    I used to love music.....listening to music, going to concerts, hanging with my musical friends as they played..... I mean, I LOVED music.

    But now, not so much. I still listen to XM on my short commute in to work, but I rarely really *listen* to music any more. Oddly, I don't really miss it very much. Oh, I can listen to a great song and think "Man, I REALLY like that song, I should listen to this more often", and then I don't.

    What I really, really, really like most often now is silence. I crave quiet.
    .

    I like to be right.

    Everyone's entitled to my opinion.

    If you don't have anything nice to say to someone, then you need to STFU.
