    How many people REALLY like music.

    I noticed in the survey thread that almost everyone who has answered knows exactly who their favourite artists are and that they're on a broad range in most cases.

    I'm curious, how many of you here REALLY LIKE music.

    I find a lot of people I know like to listen to music, but really don't have any favourites. They don't really buy (or download) music, and tend to just like whatever is "popular".

    "I like that new tune on the radio ya know 'my lady lumps' or something."

    *kills self*

    I would like to see if there are any posters who really don't care that much about music.

    If you don't know who your favourite artist is. If you don't have many gigs of music on your computer (over 20 for myself, but I don't listen to most of it), or a huge CD collection. Then you don't qualify.

    Unless you can come up with your own reasoning. Like you're a musician.

    I have a theory. Just trying to get some numbers.

    sometimes. :wink:

    also, yes... I do have my favorites and they aren't very broad.. I'm very picky about what I listen to.

    I would say i 'really like' music.... i know what base is saying.... its not that theres a right or wrong style of music to listen to... but more a 'want' to find music that really appeals to you rather than just going with whatever is being played in the charts at any particular time..... i.e. i discovered Biosphere two years ago...and im still a dedicated fan... buy all there albums etc..... but i doubt you would have ever heard of them if you wern't inclined to try and discover and explore your taste in music..... you certainly would never hear them on the radio...(unless john peel was still avile...rip)...
    But yea i'v got a decent size collection of music both on cd (some ol vinyl) and on my HD.

    Like little man said, come up with you're own reasoning. I know there's people out there that don't know artists or songs titles that well. I'm one of them, but I REALLY like music. For me it can actually affect my mood, give me energy, motivate me, keep me company when I'm depressed.

    But then I find there's a lot of people that may listen to the radio on the way to work in the car, but they don't really LOVE music. Like they don't own music, they don't really care to own it and when you ask what their favourite artist is or song, or genre, they don't even know?

    I'm wondering if there's a correlation between people who can appreciate art and creativity, because I also find that the people who don't like music, aren't really affected or concerned with any art.

    i love music, but i'm nothing compared to half my friends, who have guitars, professional equipment, drum sets, amps, walls of music collections, their own bands, etc.

    yeah

    Yeah, see, they're obviously on some next level. That's why I put the option for musicians. However, I like music just as much as them, they just like making it. I just like hearing it.

    I love it and am grateful I've always been exposed to a wide variety of it. From singing hymns in church when I was little, to listening to the Beatles and the Beach Boys on my big sister's crappy little transistor radio, to my parents' Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland albums, to learning to listen by taking piano lessons - it was always around me.

    And I feel like I was lucky to have grown up in Detroit, where whenever you turned on the radio there was someone amazing coming from Motown Records. :heart:

    Love it, can't do without it. Some of the most important people in my life are my crazy musician friends, and I love them dearly. :love: They make me feel less alone in my madness. I never have to explain anything to them.
