Re: Why can't I enjoy music the way others seem to??

I've always preferred melodic music to anything very up-tempo. And by the same token, I have difficulty picking out the beat. As a kid taking piano lessons I was a great sight reader, but hated it when my teacher wanted me to count the beats. For one thing, it just seemed like too much to do at once. My brain just said "Nope!" If I knew the song anyway, counting seemed really pointless.

I hate how most stores anymore assume everyone wants to have up-tempo, high pitched, what I think of as "shrieky" music (by female singers especially) playing over the speakers. I can't tune it out and it ruins my concentration on my shopping.
