Re: Dislike of Music

There are some genres I detest but dislike of / indifference toward music as a whole is something I simply cannot imagine.

To each their own, of course.

Re: Dislike of Music

The only genre I have failed to like is Jazz. It's like anxiety set to musical notes for me.

This.

And there must be some historical reason for it, but I can't make myself study it to find out. I am so thankful I went to a school where I could focus on rock and pop instead.

Re: Dislike of Music

I had a physics teacher in high school who hated music. He said he'd rather listen to a motor running because at least it was doing some work.

But he was a physics teacher.

Re: Dislike of Music

I suppose I'd count as being disinterested.

I do like music, but I find just sitting and listening to music boring. So, if I do listen to music it's whilst doing something else and if I'm concentrating on that my brain mostly tunes the music out. And like propita I can have a CD on constant repeat without paying it much attention.

I like smooth jazz which tends to have more melody to it. The kind of jazz I don't like is the manic kind that's all over the place.

I read somewhere that listening to music is one of the most complicated things the brain can do. So that might explain why, if you're trying to concentrate on something else, your brain needs to tune it out.

Re: Dislike of Music

I can't imagine living without music. It's a big part of my life. I wasn't much interested when I was younger, but at about the age of 18 I became interested in all kinds of music. I'm not big on rap or country, but most other genres I can enjoy.

It's like someone saying they hate movies, all movies

Re: Dislike of Music

I do love music, but I seldom listen to just music-- i.e. instrumentals, like classical music or movie soundtracks. When I was a young kid, I listened to stuff like Simon & Garfunkel, Donovan, Jesus Christ Superstar, Peter, Paul, and Mary et al endlessly, going over the lyrics in my head. I loved the poetry and the twists and turns of the language, and it was a huge influence on me as a writer. Same with stuff that came along later, like Elton John or Queen. Even when it comes to songs that are pure entertainment, there has to be something about the lyrics that I like-- "Jive Talkin'" wouldn't be the same without "Leavin' me lookin' like a dumbstruck fool."

Plus which, you can't sing along with instrumentals.

Of course you can. You can hum or use a nonsense syllable (care to guess what "duh-duh-duh DUH" is)?

2Takes what do you think of this bit of classical soundtrack music (it is only 2 minutes long, you can do it!).
Done. it has a synthetic quality which I do not care for, although the musicians playing are quite competent. As for the piece itself, I don't have any real problems with it. Just sounds sort of typical ... I guess.

It seems like any "dark," or epic movie or videogame has to have a Richard Wagner-esque soundtrack to it. Very operatic. Big emotions. And, without exception, every one of them has to tack on Carl Orff's "O Fortuna":

Hee, while I agree with teacake in that I'm certainly not a jazz fan, I love the A Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack. I'm sure that's because I have a positive emotional connection to the Christmas special and love Peanuts in general, not because I'm particularly fond of the music per se.

The only piece of music my Mother can name that she actively likes is the theme tune to The Archers.
