I read somewhere it was a result of the mass quantities of espresso they drank in Seattle.

How does someone not own any music?  That's just unfathomable to me...
 
2014-03-07 01:33:02 PM
It certainly explains more than a few comments I've seen here.
Gotta imagine it's a bit like not being able to see color.

So they identified the people without souls? interesting.

Cool old school trolling music tab headline, but it would mean all music ever made, subby. Not just after a certain time period.

All the drugs their parents did in the 1960's while listening to good music or in the 1970's while listening to disco?

Bad brains: some people are physically incapable of enjoying music

I like music. I like to listen to it when I'm driving, and occasionally to block out right-wing wackjob coworkers, but I can't say that I actually get a physical reaction to music. People actually experience this? I also buy very little music. Maybe an album every other year.

I get an erection whenever I listen to Blondie or The Go-Go's.

yep, I get goosebumps a lot.

Or the impulse to tap my toe or a smile on my face at least. Or just an internal feeling that is like "hell yes, I love this sh*t."

And my latest thing has been when a song is just kicking so much ass I raise my middle finger and just seem to think "F*ck all y'all" or at least do the devil horns.

This love is in my frickin' DNA I guess.

I can't imagine not getting a 'hair standing on end' reaction to some music.  Life would much less enjoyable.  The last time this happened for me was when I first heard Guthrie Govan's solo in Drive Home off of Steven Wilson's The Raven that Refused to Sing.
 
2014-03-07 01:59:10 PM
oh and I air guitar the sh*t out of solos constantly.

there is probably something wrong with me.

Music also has diminishing returns. The first time you listen to a powerful song is evocative. The 100th time, not so much. This also occurs for whole genres, and it's also dependent upon age. People get very conservative in their music choices the older they get. There are exceptions, but generally whatever you were listening to when you were 18, you will continue to listen to for the rest of their life (so no, your parents will never shut up about their stupid Vietnam music). Like so:

f*ck that.

I guess I am an exception for sure. I liken it to being a sports fan, unless there are dudes that just watch ESPN Classic all the time.
 
2014-03-07 02:07:30 PM
And I can still listen to Bron-Ar-Yr and get chills almost every time and I have heard that song 78 times in this playlist here, plus a bunch at home. Plus the iPod, plus that disc in the car with it.

So over 100 easy.

KJUW89: How does someone not own any music?  That's just unfathomable to me...


I watched an interesting documentary a long time ago ago with Tom Morello hanging out with Noam Chomsky, talking about politics and American foreign policy n such. Naturally, the subject of music came up, and when Tom asked Chomsky what he listens to or likes, Chomsky said he quite simply doesn't listen to or like any music. I couldn't tell if that's because he's too busy or just wasn't interested in discussing it, but there you go. Some people don't like music. Some people don't like sports. Some people don't watch movies or television. Some people don't read books. And they are not weird for feeling that way.

busy chillin': I guess I am an exception for sure. I liken it to being a sports fan, unless there are dudes that just watch ESPN Classic all the time.


I would not compare music to sports. Sports does not have the repeat value of music. Sports defines moments, but music defines whole lifestyles. You can't keep living a moment, but you can keep living a lifestyle. The classic rock station would not be so popular otherwise.


(I like how classic rock always means whatever was playing 20 years ago. I'm dating myself, but when I was young classic rock was Chuck Berry and Little Richard. Then classic rock became the Doors, Stones and Led Zeppelin. Then classic rock became Bruce Springsteen and Boston. Now, today, classic rock is Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. In ten years, classic rock is going to be Nickleback. Makes you feel old).

The fact that you're still listening to a song 45 years after it was released proves my point.

My iPod just died.  My hard drive died a year ago.  I was without music UNTILLLL I went to the public library and took out 120 CDs.  They had two Meat Puppet's albums.  It isnt the same but I am happy.

I see what you are saying...I guess I just realize lots of people listen to what they used to when they were younger and I began to think why am I different. So to me, many friends can know every player on their favorite team with stats and records, but look at me a tad odd when I say "check out, Buckethead."

I am like they are with sports with music, it is my hobby and passion to know way too much about people I don't know and will never meet. My heroes just happen to be musicians, not athletes.

well, sh*t, I can link to 46 brand new Buckethead albums from 2013 and 2014 if it will make you happy. Yes, i still listen to some old sh*t, but definitely not exclusively.

And it is my favorite song that I have heard over 100 times so I posted against your diminishing returns statement.

and this is my current favorite song and in the short time it has been released I am probably coming up on 30 or 40 times and it still kicks major ass.

I asked if there was a limit and they said no.  The librarian came over when she noticed my arms were full and handed me a basket.  The older librarian checking me out at the circ desk seemed kind of pissed when I got there but she chilled out and started talking music with me half way through.

Nickleback and classic, two words that should never ever go together.

The hard drive died unexpectedly and the iPod was an old one and new iTunes freaked it out and erased it.  I know now but that doesnt really help.

Oh, definitely.  Music has made me break down sobbing or caused goosebumps, among other things.  My husband sounds much like you...he'll listen to music, but he doesn't get why it's so moving to me.  He can't visualize it the way I can, and it doesn't cause emotional or physical responses for him.

When I was 18, I listened to rap and rock music.  Since then, I have gone through 'phases' where I want to listen to only one kind of music, but they have varied greatly, from Japanese and Korean pop music to opera to Broadway Musicals to classic music and just about everything in between.  About the only type of music I have never truly fallen in love with would be country music.  I like old country music (60's), bluegrass and gospel, but I have never been able to stand 'modern' country music.  Odd, really, since I grew up right next to Nashville.

Yes. He wears a KFC bucket on his head. He was a one-time member of Axl Rose's revolving list of guitarists in his overly long Chinese Democracy project.

Let me put it to you this way: It could be worse. You could be into Joe Satriani.
