Does music mean as much to you as it used to, do you miss how it used to make you feel?

Yes, no.

Dingbod Kesterson, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 13:27 (twelve years ago) link

No, yes.

No, not really.

Woo, waa.

I've only started loving music in the last 5 years or so. I think before that I had a crush on it.

Still love music, but I Love Music is starting to look like Loretta Lockhorn to me.

1. Comparatively speaking, no. There was a stage in my adolescence, and another stage in my early twenties, where music was pretty much all I had.

2. No, I don't miss it. I think there was something toxic about it.

Yes, even more

Not at all

1. Yes. When I was in my teens metal was my music and I felt fiercly possessive of it and also a bit special and elite because of it - someting that the lyrics of a lot of metal of the time totally pandered to.

2. Yes and no. I don't feel the same intense passion anymore, but I was terribly blinkered, which isn't really healthy. It's a relief to be able to listen to and appraise pretty much anything without bias.

1. Now music is more important than ever, but I guess in a different way.
2. Miss how going to concerts used to make me feel, nowadays I just put on Spirit of Eden very loud at home and I am good.

(1) As important as ever. (I could be wrong. Do I really remember how it felt 30 years aog? At any rate, I still think it would be difficult for me survive without it, so it's pretty important.)

(2) No. I might how specific recordings or types of music used to make me feel, but not how music in general used to make me feel.

yes,no

The Brainwasher, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 19:24 (twelve years ago) link

I mean I suppose I used to take it more seriously 3/4 years ago than I do now, but I didn't really geniunely enjoy it then nearly as much as I do now.

The Brainwasher, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 19:25 (twelve years ago) link

yes / chap OTM

Curt1s Stephens, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 19:28 (twelve years ago) link

i love music more and more each day. how can i miss how it made me feel when all i have to do is put some on and then i feel that way again?

pipecock, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 19:30 (twelve years ago) link

well said

The Brainwasher, Tuesday, 18 March 2008 19:31 (twelve years ago) link

1. Yes, maybe more so.
2. Not really, I get what I used to get from music I used to like from something else. It's not like I look back and think "I wish I was still passionate about Epitaph skatepunk bands".

Oh yea, that's who Loretta Lockhorn is...(see James' post above)

The Lockhorns is a United States one-panel syndicated daily comic strip about a married couple, Leroy and Loretta Lockhorn, who bitterly hate each other and yet do not divorce (see below). It was created in 1968 by William Carrell

No. Yes.

For me, and this is the case with most things, the exciting and new-ness pulls me into interests until they eventually become tired and numb. I usually do lose sight of much of what has made music enjoyable for me.

On this other hand this is all bullshit, me projecting into the past. I suffer very much from the effects of nostalgia, a dream of a more innocent and fresh time, but where exciting and new was really largely the product of ignorance.

However, that's not to say exciting and new wasn't there, or wasn't any less 'magical.' It's the flashes of that which are what keep me seeking out music, which is why I'm such a huge fan of Pantha du Prince, for instance, because he makes me remember why I like music in the first place.
