In Love With Music


Reilly

Recommended Posts

I'm not posting this in the Music section because I see it as more of a general life question.

 

Are you in love with music?

 

I'm sure all of you probably are, or will claim to be, and some of you may even be annoying enough to try and prove it by being like "I listen to about 129 hours of music per week buddy" but I am not.

 

You will begin to understand how someone can fall out of love with music when you think back to a time when you first discovered it, properly, appreciating, it was all so exciting.

 

Do you love music as much as you did then?

 

I think as people get past their initial love of music they get more critical, and for someone like me who has sampled a lot of different styles, nothing quite seems unbelievably brilliant anymore. My favourite music, still, isnt that superb.

 

What I'm saying is, music doesnt hit me like it once used to, as a force.

 

I just put on a CD for the first time in ages, and its great, but not moving.

 

I miss the feeling.

A couple of years ago,every time I listened to a new band that I really liked I immediately fell in love with it and stick to that band like...forever. Now that critical side of me has developed and I feel comfortable recognizing crappy music or the one I dislike when I listen to it.

When I listened to Coldplay for the first time I became a die hard fan, but when X&Y came out I felt it wasn't as good as AROBTTH (in my opinion), being a fan and all.

I can't say if i could call it "in love with music"..... ... i want to say that it plays a big role in my life.....I make music and I listen to it a lot.....and I'm very ambitious when it comes to music.....when i hear a song I more analyse it.....

and it's one of my few interests....I get in another world when I hear something that has to do with music......and music shows my real feelings.....well....I don't know how to explain now what music does to me.......but I know that it's one of my talents!

 

And in former times I always beleived what other people said about different bands and songs....I always thought that they are right and I don't know anything....but i think that's wrong....I love discussions about music...and those discussions are the ones I REALLY know what to say...and I stand my opinion there....

Good points, Reilly. I find myself feeling that way about a lot of music I listen to.

 

I discovered music with Coldplay. I think I was about 12 or 13 years old when that happened. I fell completely in love with them. Nothing they did was wrong, to me. For a couple years they were literally all I listened to, they were all I needed. Then I discovered classic rock. Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, the Stones, Hendrix, the Doors, Dylan, the Who. The list went on and on. I stopped listening to Coldplay for some time (probably an entire year) and listened to JUST that. It was all so new to me. I became quite an elitist, refusing to listen to anything that had been released in the past 25 years.

 

But that grew old too. And I went back to Coldplay. Then I found U2. I think the rest, there, is history.

 

Now I find myself just listening to newer music. I hardly listen to classic rock anymore (I don't consider U2 classic rock). It's kind of amazing to me how much my musical tastes have fluctuated in the past 4 years. For me, I let this taste dictate my life. Insane, though it may sound, it kind of works to me.

 

I can recognize a very critical side of me coming out, though. I notice I don't listen to Coldplay that much anymore... It sort of scares me, I don't know how to explain it. Considering I'm seeing them in 8 days, I better start listening to them again! I'm hoping that the concert will reignite that initial spark I felt. But now I feel that spark when I listen to bands like Keane, Arctic Monkeys, or Interpol. It's annoying, to say the least.

 

 

I'm still in love with music. Just in a different way. I've thought of becoming a music journalist, so I could live this love. But I don't know. Having a job like that could kill any love I still have remaining...

But wait ....we are talking about in love with music.....my big aim is to study Jazz and popularmusic....with the instrument saxofon....if I hear anybody at my school or in my area who wants to do the same...I get jealous....yeah.....I don't want them to be better than me...or doing the same like me....

I used to be that way, Whisperator. When I was in middle school I was convinced I was going to become a professional trumpet player. I was pretty good too!

 

But then in high school I realized that the music instructor that I had always dreamed of having one day (he was the major force in the school, controlled the music program, and taught the high school level), he was actually a complete dickhead. Always played favorites. He pushed me too hard, and I ended up developing extreme anxiety. That was when I started to hate band, trumpet, and anything related to it.

 

I also got into classic rock at that point, wearing Zeppelin and Doors shirts around. I think I did it mostly to rebel against this music instructor. When I started doing that I noticed he acted very differently to me. Even crueler than he had before. So I guess I fell out of love with music in one respect, and fell in love with another.....

 

Weird...

Right now I'm crazy about music, I love it to death, not all music, of course.But I can't say what will I feel when I'm 25 or 30, I just hope I'll never fall out with music, cause its one of the best feelings I've evr had.

Music is pretty much my life... I spend most of my days thinking about music, playing my guitar or my trumpet, and what instruments I want to learn how to play, and if I want to work on singing, and what I'd name my band if I had one, and thinking about joining church choir (too many old people xP), and whenever I go to bed, I stay up all night listening to the radio.

 

I can't get my mind off music, and I hope it stays like that forever, and it's not just a phase, but of course it's a phase, because everything's 'just a phase' apparently...

Music = Life!

 

My whole life seems to skip to a beat. Almost every memory I have of my life so far has a song tagged onto it. And I hope that never changes or I 'fall out of love with music'...I can't see it happening though.

 

Ever since I was a small child music has been my true passion in life. My parents and older sisters are very musical and I have been brought up to have a very eclectic taste, and to appreciate all types of music. And i'm very proud of that.

 

Over the last 2years there seems to be more beautiful music around than i've ever heard before...so im definatley in love with music more than ever! :heart:

I do actually love music! I think my love for it has actually grown stronger than it was at hte start, and I put that down to discovering new music...along with my old favourites. Music is in my blood so how can I not love it!? :dozey:

mhh ... i kinda know what you mean ,...

sometimes i listen to songs that i really loved years ago but nowadays ... they just don't touch me anymore. well, they're still good but i kinda like other stuff now.

 

i'm more into older stuff ... i lately enjoy listening to The Smiths and The Beatles. they're awesome. The Beatles have so many simple songs that you just like at once.

Some people say that you cannot love an inanimate object. This is explained my saying that love can only be two sided. But I can confidently say that music...music can be loved.

It moves me at times (certain songs) Like when I listen to it late at night, a really good song can touch me and I think that that is one of the greatest feelings in a not so great world. It may sound a bit whack, but at times, sounds and music really ...okay.... I think that things that count on this earth are things that change my emotions or make me...feel. So if music can and does this...it can be loved and you can be "in love" with music.

 

 

Hope this made sense

Funny to read this again... I have joined this forum not too long ago and everywhere you go you will find the same topics. Well ok, I have to admit you guys have really loads and loads of topics :D

 

I love music, my life would not be the same if it weren't for music. I'm inspired by it because you can hear somebody's thoughts.. well, at least if they really took any effort in creating the song you are listening. It's also funny to see how people change because of music. Take me for example. My general music is dance music. Progressive is the way forward for me... This music has dominated my entire life as I have been spinning and producing it for years and years, club in club out. The dance music industry is so big in my country that it supplies enough jobs for more then 100.000 people (every single time there is a party)! I spin my music at home when I am in my studio trying to produce some new beats and when I go to friends, to a party or work... I am open to any music as long as people really take effort and I must say I was wrong at first with Coldplay.. I thought ah, again a sweet little band that get more instant hits then the band we had before them... but it's not like that. I really appreciate there music and warmth in feeling. Especially when you play the track, it's like emotion comes in to your room. It's a feeling..Alll music lovers that can't live without music know exactly what I mean with this.. you can't describe it, but when it's there.. it's there

 

Enough said :)
