Music or No Music Which Do You Prefer............


What type of music do you like? Me I like most music except classical which for the most part just doesn't move me and yes I know many people won't agee but it is what it is.......

I love country music but it is not the only type of music I love I will listen to pop and to rock and even to rap. I think music is just so important in life music can make us feel so many things mostly it makes me feel alive. Listening to music has always been a passion of mine, however, I have found in the last year or so that when I am in the car driveing I no longer want the radio on or even a cd playin I don't know why that is I just find it annoying.........

I use to have music playing all the time and now I don't in some ways it feels wrong but it can't be forced maybe I will drift back into listening to musice but for now that is not the case.

  1. I used to listen to music all the time from the age of about ten. But then I lived with a guy who had his own country band and heard nothing else for seven years. After that, I basically listened to oldies on the car radio and new age stuff at home for the last couple decades...so I am waaaay out of the music loop. ;)

  2. I love listening to my ipod while I am cleaning or doing dishes. It helps me keep motivated. But I absolutely hate when music in movies is so loud that you can hardly hear the dialogue!
    As always,...Good post!

    He plays any type of music but my favorite is when he plays Jazz.

  5. I love most music although the techno dance stuff gives me a headache (showing my age I guess)

  6. I used to listen to a lot of music but as the years go on, I hardly listen to any. This is partly due to having cars where the stereo doesn't set radio stations so I have to search for it each time I get in the car which if I'm not going far is pointless. Then over the years my older brother works nights so I feel guilty having music playing.

  7. i ADORE music, everything from tina turner to depeche mode, scissor sisters, and dolly parton. i also LOVE "native" music, flutes, chants, even didgeridoos lol! i almost always have something on in the background. i actually like tons of stuff from australia too. olivia newton john, jimmy barnes, kylie minogue,etc etc and i have lots of special edition tina turner stuff from there (and all over the world) as much as i love america when it comes to music and movies we are rather bland!

    1. Music touches our soul well I think so and I do have times when I miss listening to it and will turn something on but I guess I am getting older and finding the quiet to be nice............lol

  8. I love music, but I am like you. In the last few years, I have come to really value the restorative powers a few moments of silence can do~

  11. Hi Jo-Anne. I've always got music going on in the car. It's strange that you've suddenly turned against that, isn't it? Like you, I love all sort of music (actually, not rap!), and I am especially fond of the music from the 60's, which was when I was a teenager. Something a bit different from you today!

    1. Yes I think it is odd too, and you know I use to listen to rap also for a number of years it kind of grew on me...........lol

  12. I like rock, such as The Beatles and Bonjovi. I like a little country (Loretta Lynn and Johnny Cash). But if I play music when I need to concentrate on something else, it gives me a headache. For example, as I write, I want the house to be so quiet that the only thing I hear is the click of doggie toenails on the wood floor.

    Love,
    Janie

  13. Music is a very personal thing. You cannot force it. Music is one of the few things in life that reaches both parts of the brain so it has a profound effect. Listen when you feel like it, and don't listen when you don't feel like it. No right or wrong here... it is what it is. :)

    1. You are right you cannot force it you either feel like listening to it or you don't, I didn't know that it reaches both sides of the brain..........

  15. Ha ha! I love classical! I listen to it often! And I will NOT listen to rap--it's about the only type of music I have NO time for!

    1. I know many people love classical music and many people hate rap, for me rap grew on me when I had teenagers in the car listening to it all the time....

  16. I love all music, even classical. Different music at different times moves me in different ways. I understand your conundrum about turning of the sounds, be it music or other. For me, the sound of quiet is a music all in it's own and allows our mind to slow, rest and then wonder... Just my thoughts. :)
