Using music as background for other activities is perhaps frowned upon, but personally, as much as I truly love music which is the greatest thing in the world, it's rare for me to listen to music without doing something else at the same time. I cherish situtaions that make me an attentive listener, such as concerts, but also when I'm on a long bus or train ride and can listen to music for hours on end while watching the landscape go by. The very best thing I know is being in love with a person and lying in bed all day with her listening to music together.
So anyway, are you an attentive listener? If so, were you always that or did you learn it? What are your thoughts on background listening? I knew I fell in love with albums from background listening, so there's something to commend it.
