How often to you listen to music...

January 19, 2008 11:38am CST
I wake up to the radio, I get in the car & my CD player's on, I get to work with the radio on in the office. I get back in my car to the CD. I go home & watch music television. I go on the internet & start iTunes. Throughout my day, music is what keeps me sane, without it I think I would find it very hard. I love discovering new bands and vocalists, different genres that I haven't really paid attention to before, going to small gigs with unknown musicians really loving what they're doing. Does anybody else feel that music keeps their day flowing, that it highlights every emotion. Do you listen to music all the time or just when the mood takes you. Nica x

Because I am on the computer for most of the time, and I hate the silence I will play Itunes on the computer as I work away, so I am always listening to music and even when I go out for a walk I will take my Ipod with me, so I have music on whilst I walk, when I'm at the gym I take my Ipod too and of course in the car I have my cd player. Music is very relaxing and stimulates you more.

I try to listen to music every chance I get. I don't have a TV anymore as it is a waste of time. You could listen to music at anytime. While reading,writing or on the internet. I don't listen to commercial radio because I have a satellite radio. I also try to play the guitar pretty often as well.

I keep Last.fm or Pandora going most of the time. I love the way they help me discover new artists, based on the record of what I already like. We also have one old PC on the network here at home with a huge hard drive. All it does is serve music to the other computers. We're copied most of our CDs there, so we don't have to actually find the CDs to hear them any more. We did have it set up to play through the surround sound system, but we need to replace the receiver. Even more than listening, though, I enjoy making music. We just got a digital piano via freecycle, the first time I've had a working piano in my home since I left my parents house at 17. I missed it so much! I sing when I play. That's what truly soothes my soul.

I also wake up to radio, listen to the radio while getting ready for work, on the drive to work, at work, on the drive home. When I get home my husband usually watches the TV so that's enough background noise for me. I love listening to music - almost all kinds.

i lesten to music most of the time it helps me to concentrate, if i have got loads of work to do on my computer i usually stick the speakers up halfway, but not too loud. if i am driving my car, the volume is up as far as it can go, sounds crazy but helps me feel great and also helps concentration. i find if i am driving with no music, i lose concentration getting too hooked on what other people are doing, in the way that if some one pulled out in front of me, i would be stuck on that for a couple of minutes. if i had themusic on it wouldnt have bothered me so much, i think if you should drive with music it enhances your mood and stops road rage!!!lol as a kid i always had music on, it helped me to relax when i went through that difficult stage of growing up,sort of 15-17 when you cant really do anything.

For me, I can still listen to music without listening to radios or any songs. Music for me are the noise that I hear from everywhere, the chirpping of birds, the sound of the wind running through my hair and almost every bit of sound that I can hear. But as for listening to song, I love to play some on my player or here on my desktop while mylotting. If I've got enough from it, I'll turn on the television and listen to it as well watch some shows. I also play a musical instrument, I love playing my guitar whenever I get tired of hearing things that I prefer to hear my own voice!LoL

I listen to music when I feel happy and also when sad. I listen to soft music when i am sad. I love listening to my fav songs from old films. I can enjoy my fav songs any time.

I listen to music quite a lot. In the car when I go out I gotta have the radio or a cd playing. I need music when I do my housework and when I workout. Sometimes I sleep with the radio or Sirius on.

I listen to music most of the day. I love music and it helps me feel better. If I am down, I just turn it on and sing away.

I listen to music all day long. All kinds depending on my mood. I do volunteer DJing for the handicapped and underprivlegded and elderly..quite a mix so I have hundreds of CDs. Even my African Grey Parrot has her own CDs which I put on for her when I have to go out. I don't like her choice in music so her's only play while I am gone. It was bad enough compiling them. I've Been Working on the Railroad...The Hokey Pokey... Yeah right.

I like to hear music only at nite and that is because i think only good and romantic tracks are played at night.This makes your mind fresh with some old thoughts which makes you happy and gives you a good sleep.

Every chance I get!!! I love different bands and I stumbled across a really good band called "Bleak" they're a Finnish band from Finland. I'm addicted to their music now. You should check them out. Tell me what you think!

I listent o music all the time. I have a psp full of music that I carry around for that purpose. Usually I try to hear a new album ever couple days and then replay them until Ive properly enjoyed them. Unless the music is not worthy, then I move on to other types.
