    Personally, I never got these people that just use music as a background ambient sort of presence. Does anyone else just listen to music as like a sole activity in itself? Also, anyone else just miss the days of CDs? When you had the tangible product with the artwork...it felt like a more complete package...now its just click and play...it felt more special :(....another thing I can't stand with the modern world.

    When I used to own a car, it was a complete sh!ITBox but it had a CD player but for some reason it didn't play all CD's, there was a select few that were able to play. It was like some sort of game you had to play with the car, you're all like "WILL IT WORK?....YES!" then it was like a treat. Also, someone ripped the antenna off so there was no radio LMAO. Never fixed that car.

    Uh... you're talking to a person who still collects CDs and vinyl. :lol:

    Yes, while I enjoy listening to music as "background", I am more interested in appreciating the genres and dissecting the meaning behind the songs. Even better if it may have dual or ambiguous meaning. :)

    That’s the only way I enjoy listening to music - actively. Having it as background makes me jittery and distracted. As a result, I probably listen to less music than a lot of people because my time is limited.

    I do miss CDs and albums and liner notes and artwork. I still have a lot though

    Eta: i miss the whole culture around it too. Record shopping, record stores, cute boys in record stores. EPs, LPs, 45s.

    I dig lots of stuff, but my go-to is 80s hair metal. Ratt, Poison, KISS, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, The Cult, Whitesnake... Fantastic music to grow up with!

    Ohh.. yeah I love me a good ballad while cleaning. I love the Scorpions. They are probably my favorite band of all time. I would love to see them in concert.

    I saw the Scorpions in 1988 on the Savage Amusement tour. That's a great album. Lots of ballads on that one

    It all depends on my mood. I enjoy old and new country. Rockabilly, Doo wop, 50's-80's rock, hip hop, R&B, soul, Motown, classic jazz as in the Rat Pack, Billie Holiday, Ella, and so on.
