Hello guys, Just wanted to ask for you how will you distinguish a music freak from that of a music lover aside from the spelling? Okey if we'll based on the dictionary I'm sure there really is. But, I wanted your own definition and the way understand them. God bless! Have a nice day!

Hey Zilje! I would say that I am a music freak! I have always just love music! I have all different kinds of music in my vast music collection. I have tons of records (yes girlfriend I am that old!) that include hard rock, soul, rhythm & blues, pop, and more. I have cassettes, cd's with anything from rap to you name it! I love to listen to all kinds of music all the time no matter where I am or what I'm doing and sing along even though my voice sucks and has gotten worse with age! I still even love to dance and let me tell you I can still shake it! I freak out alot of young kids when they find out that I love alot of the "new" "joints". Me and my bf listen to alot of new joints and countdowns all the time. In fact we both love Lil Wayne! Not someone you'd think I would be listening to and singin' with! lol

Hi there Opal26! whoah!! I salute you for that! Hope you won't mind me askin' how old are you now?My apology for askin' you that. I have also always love music but not all genres. Sorry to tell you this, I don't really like hard rock music It irritates me and (this is just a feelin' )It seems a devil to me. But, I respect your love for it. Anyway, thank you for the response and sharing your opinion 'bout music. God bless! Have a nice day!

Music lovers enjoy listening to music often. They have a certain level of appreciation for music in general. On the other hand a music freak will not only love music, but appreciate all genres, recognize and compliment good music even if it isn't their preferred genre, will never be without some sort of musical device, reads up on all the latest music news. My youngest son is a music freak! Studied voice, likes all genres of music, even Italian and Spanish though he speaks only English. Is self taught in guitar, drums, and piano.

Hi there redkathy! I appreciate your distinction of a music freak from that of a music lover. Based on your distinction, I would say am a music lover but would eventually turn into a music freak. "coz though I don't listen to all genres of music but I do study how to play music instruments and all that stuff. Thank you anyway for sharing. God bless! Have a nice day!
