I listen to everything every sound every vocal even those little extra sounds in the background, I guess its because I grew up in a very musical family, one of the first things I listen to is the music, then the vocals and then the lyrical content, when I listen to music, I listen to every little note, like the sounds that some people might not notice unless they really aprecate music, for me the music is one of the first things I notice, then the artist voice and lyrics, thats why when people ask me what kind of music I like I say I like all kinds because I can find the beauty in pretty much all forms of music, I just go by how the music makes me feel when I hear the different sounds, but there is some music that I enjoy more then others, for example I dont listen to a lot of rap, music, but I have heard rap songs that I kind of like, I mean there are certain rap songs that has a certain musical rhythm that I like, but I dont really like a lot of rap songs, but when I hear somthing I like sometimes it could be someone Iv never even heard of, but the sound is good to my soul thats what I listen to when I listen to music music that makes sounds thats good to the soul Well its your turn to tell me what you listen to when you listen music? oh, and if your interested in listening to some of what I listen to feel free to check out my profile I'm always adding music to my playist.

I listen to classical music every evening when I get back home, Chopin, Brahms, Beethoven, Strauss, and more. For me, classical music is very relaxing and refreshing after a long day's work. I have a collection of classical music CD's. Have a nice day !

FirrsttT!! lolz If I'm listening to a song/music, I'm trying to listen for the whole song at first, If I'm gonna be comfortable with it or not. Second, I listen to Drums, The beat and pattern of it. Coz I play drums ^_~ Third is the guitar, The melody they made, harmony and the lead part. The last thing is the vocal part and the bass line ^_~ Well I think it depends on the song I'm listening to on which sound is more catchy. ^_~ Most of the time, Metal music is all you can hear on my ipod/player. Depends on the mood and ambiance of the surroundings. Do you listen to a metal music? ^_~ lolz. I know most of the common people don't like it. ^_~ Have a nice day!

Yes me too, I listen to the drum beat patterns first, my uncle plays drums so I guess thats why I listen to the beats and melody of the music first, then the lyrics and then just the entire song, I listen to all sorts of music as I said even a touch of metal.

I like to listen to the lyrics and the beat..if I don't like the beat I won't listen to the song. Also, harmony is a nice thing to listen for, I suppose..

Yes I feel the same, if the beats are lame I wont listen to the song at all, I think that the over all beat of the song can make or brake a song for sure.
