Re: Dislike of Music

I listen to music all the time when I'm driving (trusty iPod classic) and when I'm trying to sleep (I have Liquid Mind playing at night at all times - helps me relax). So I could not get along without music.

Re: Dislike of Music

I love music. Mostly of the popular variety. Rock, Country, R & B and some Pop. Not really into Classical or Soundtracks, but I can appreciate them. Can't really imagine a life without music. So many songs trigger memories both good and bad.

Re: Dislike of Music

I've noticed that, when I'm really into the work I'm doing, I don't hear the music I have on.

One week at my old job, since I worked alone in that room, I put a cd on repeating a single song for about 6 hours. For the whole week. People passing by who heard were all "wtf is going on?" I swear I didn't hear the song through a single time.

I can't ever imagine myself not liking music. It helps shape me as a person, and I think whatever someone listens to can say a lot about their character.

Ohh, that's a good one. For rousing trailer music, Audiomachine are also pretty awesome:



The best part of that track comes at about the 2:30 mark!
LOL, a couple weeks ago I had a dream where I was in a dramatic discussion with some nameless person and trying to get them to see my side of "it" whatever it was.. and in the background of this dream the Duel of Fates was playing. Which I have been laughing about ever since.



As far as soundtrack music goes this piece is one of the loveliest ever..



I do however dislike listening to a lot of old music I was burned out on before I was 20, I can't seem to listen to the same thing for decades like a lot of people do. I like new stuff. If I ever hear the Eagles again I will puke.
Ha! I know what you mean. There's some music from the late 80s and early 90s (some prime examples off the top of my head are the B52s, especially "Love Shack", The Cure, and The Cranberries) that - in a vacuum - I wouldn't mind too much. None of those would be something I'd listen to myself, based on my tastes, but I wouldn't mind it; if I hear it, it'd be just like ok sure, whatever, music is going in the background. But, because my sister listened to them a TON when we were growing up, I got sick of em and now if I hear them again I sort of cringe and think Gha not this! [/QUOTE]



My sister listened to The Beatles every day through my whole adolescence, to the point where I cannot really hear them any more. She had all the albums and her room was covered in Beatles photos, every single square inch of the walls. I have never voluntarily listened to them because of this

I pretty much did that myself with The Cure which I listened to until they were PULP. Just really over listened for a long time. I swear I can hear three notes in the background of some noisy shop and I will say "this is The Cure".

I do overplay stuff, I tend to have one song on repeat and listen it to it compulsively for an hour or more. I've always done that and if a song has risen to that point of playability it's in some hall of fame for me.

Re: Dislike of Music

I majored in Music, so... yeah.

There are songs I don't like, artists/bands/composers I don't care for, and I can't stand Stevie Nicks' voice. Despite my professors' best efforts, I fail to understand much of improvisational jazz. I prefer Russian composers over the German/Austrian ones, and I prefer the music of my father's childhood over pretty much anything else (particularly the Beatles and the Beach Boys).

If someone gets absolutely nothing out of music, and they are not deaf (and deaf people can still appreciate lyrics and a really cranked up bass line!), I have to wonder what's not clicked in their brain. And if someone says they hate music, I assume they have not listened to all the possibilities and found their niche yet. But, obviously, I'm biased.

Re: Dislike of Music

My father dislikes music (and just about everything else under the sun really) but personally I rarely leave the house without my iPod.

My tastes may be odd and my collection smallish (15GB, ~2000 songs) but I couldn't do without it for long.

Re: Dislike of Music

I read an article in The Guardian several years ago by a guy whose wife hated music. He wrote at length about life with her and how unsual it was for someone to dislike music. It was only on reading the article that I realised that I too largely dislike music. When people speak about what music means to them, what an important part of their life it is I can't relate to that at all. Don't get me wrong, there are some pieces of music I like, some songs etc but by and large music is a miniscule part of my life and if I never heard it again it wouldn't worry me. Often even the songs I like just sound like noise to me and I'd rather have quiet.

Re: Dislike of Music

Music is a big part of my life. My mother's side of the family was very musical, and my mother played piano every day, instilling a love of classical music in me. There's almost always music playing in our house. I like a lot of genres, though one genre which I can't stand is musicals. I love opera, though. With most people it's the other way around.

I like opera as well. As long as it's by Philip Glass. Otherwise, .

I could never understand how people don't like music. I've know several and it's always seemed so odd to me. Music is such a fundamental part of the human experience.

It's like people who don't like pets.

You're not alone. I work in an open office, so I do listen to music to drown out my coworkers. However, I would much prefer silence. I do enjoy background music while watching a movie or playing a video game to enhance the mood, but outside of media I find it a distraction.

Although I don't hate music, I do dislike lyrics. If I'm going to listen to music I'd prefer it to be instrumental music.

It is nice to know that I am not quite alone in my attitude towards music.

It seems that there are a few famous who also didn't like music such as Theodore Roosevelt, Ulysses Grant, Che Guevara, possibly Charles Darwin and it seems that Sigmund Freud absolutely detested it.
