    I grew up with music. Country and classical, mostly. I hid a radio in my room so I could listen to rock. I was a musician for years. I sing all the time. My iPod has everything on it from David Cassidy to Dolly Parton to Rob Zombie to Queens of the Stone Age. My family says my headstone will say, “Life is a musical”.

    We have three or four threads on music here, and I love listening to what other people are listening to - it tells me a little bit about who you are. Or does it? What about people who don’t like music? Can they be trusted?

    Nope. People who don't like music or dogs can not be trusted. Avoid them at all costs.

    You shoulda told me the music thing ten years ago. The guy I got involved with did not like music. Like, wtf?! How is that even possible? Turns out he was an idiot who broke my heart in a thousand pieces. Think he was a sociopath.

    Even psychopaths like music. I mean not necessarily good music.

    Whatever it was it probably wears a MAGA cap and committed vote fraud in the states. That level of fucked up.

    I've never met anyone who doesn't like music.
    How's it even possible to not like music? I mean, there's gotta be some song they like. "Happy Birthday?" "Jingle Bells?" Something by Stravinsky?

    Nope. I think I’ve met two people who didn’t like music. They “didn’t get it”. The guy I was involved with, I’d want to send him songs that reminded me of him, or expressed how I felt, but that was a no-go. Lyrics were lost on him. Music didn’t transport him places. So weird.

    I wonder if it’s a brain thing. Or trauma. Or trauma to the brain. Someone should do a study.

    It’s weird. I can find something cool in just about every genre of music.

    Doesn't like any music at all? No. They must be some fucked up non-friendly alien species.

    I've been a music lover my entire life. First it was the classic rock my parents seemed to favor, then it was classical music and opera when I started playing piano. I branched out to rag time and jazz. A cousin introduced me to pop and what was current/modern rock at the time. Friends introduced me to techno/electronica/etc and metal. My love of music has just grown from there. I like to look up lyrics for music I like, too.

    Just about the only genre I overall dislike is country. Other than that, game on.

    Music is the language of the soul.

    If you don't speak it, you aren't gonna be able to truly communicate with me..

    If it's not fucking LOUD, I don't wanna hear it.

    I used to feel that way about country and then I got into Pasty Cline, Johnny Cash (check out his version of NIN's "Hurt"), always loved KD Lang, then it just kinda went from there.

    I know of his cover. It's one of the reasons I don't flat out say I dislike the genre as a whole. My dad, brother, and most of the people that I went to school with when I was younger love country. I've been exposed to it plenty. Most of it grates on my ears and nerves like nails on a chalkboard board.

    I don't know what it is, but I can't do country. Actually I know exactly what it is. Just the general sound, it makes me grind my teeth.

    I support what country originally stood for and I respect the genre, I just can't stand listening to it. Even the old shit, my man loves Johnny Cash, but I can't get into it. That song you posted is one of my dad's favorites... But I just get it stuck in my head and I just can't stand it.

    A lot of people feel the same way about my taste in music though, I like Horror-Core and Death Metal. Lots of folks I know find everything I enjoy to be complete trash music, but I fucking love it.

    To each their own.
