let's talk about MUSIC

i know music can be great for ppl like us, and there's so much to say about music, how it makes us feel, what kinds we like, which artists are the best or the WORST

so, let's talk about it!

can you stand pop music? or even prefer it?
(i like some pop music, but i can only handle a small amount of upbeat stuff. i love listening to rap, hip hop, and r&b especially when driving. but i prefer alt rock music)

what music did you LOVE when you were a teenager?
(as a preteen/young teen- fall out boy, my chemical romance, panic at the disco, AFI, and all the bands that fall in line with these. i also really liked indie rock, like arcade fire and of montreal. these bands have bled into my taste for most of my life, but as i became an older teen i started to listen to what i considered "heavier" stuff like avenged sevenfold, of mice and men, and just lots of emo stuff with more screaming. but now, i listen to music that is much more chill. see: shoegaze and dreampop).

what music did you grow up hearing?
i was born into a classic rock family, both parents born in the year 1960. but when i was a young kid, i insisted on listening to Radio Disney and High School Musical. This lasted til age 10 or so.

which artist fueled your "musical awakening" and made you love music?
(hilary duff was my first FAV artist, then MCR, FOB, PATD really made me love music)

do you fall asleep/do work to it?

(it is a nECESSITY).

do you change the song if it isn't "just right?" does this make it difficult to not interrupt whatever u and ur partner are doing *in bed?* (;
(yes yes YES YES YES)

is there stuff you listen to nonstop? are you constantly searching for new stuff?
i listen to certain albums a lot, and then when i get too familiar with them and it gets "overplayed," i need to move on. i use Spotify so i can listen to almost anything for $4.99 a month. Spotify is free, but since i get a student discount, it's worth it. no ads (some of which actually triggered my misophonia), you can download playlists/albums so you can hear them offline, you can skip as many songs as you want on mobile (and you can have stuff offline on your phone too for those long car rides)

do you play an instrument? or are you in a band? or do you wish you could?
i played clarinet from age 11 (?) until now (although I havent played in a year). i was in school band (and i HATED one-on-one lessons with my private instructor). i've tried to learn guitar like 3, 4 times now. i have lots of friends in punk bands and i would love to start one,, and i think i really could if i tried.

literally, say anything you want about music. i love to know about other people's experiences with it!
