probably. these days i don't really notice music as such. it just tends to be a noise in the background. i have the radio on in the car but mainly to drown out the engine noise.

 

i tend to get a bit narked when the music drowns out the conversation on a tv programme.

 

i have nearly every number one from when the charts first started(mostly in mp3 format on my pc) til at least 2002 but very rarely do i deliberatly sit down and actually listen to it.

 

i would more than likely miss it if it wasn't there but until they stop accompanying every event on tv with "mood" music i will never really know.

I agree with Peter. As you get older, music and many other things become less essential.

I still enjoy music but, these days, have to rely on my own record collection as there is very little of what I call "real music" on the radio or TV. There are one or two specialist programmes and of course Radio 3, but virtually every other station seems to pump out pap all the time.

I also agree that "background music" with news and current affairs, documentary programmes, etc has become intrusive.

I love music and it has always played a very large part in my life. Could I live without it? Well, if it was a case of choosing to live without or die - I'd pick live without.

 

I can always have music "inside my head" though and I can listen, mentally, without any problem, sort of audio-recall. Not as good as hearing externally but better than no music at all. :)

Music is very important to me. For someone as old as me there is so much to draw from, it is so accessible nowadays through radio, online, cd, DVD, concerts.

 

There is such a wide variety and mix from classical, through pop, the stuff my kids listen and rave about etc; there is something for everyone, invoking a wealth of feelings, moods, emotions and memories.

 

Music will always be around and if you try and get rid of it, it will simply be created again using whatever exists, so don't worry music will never die unlike ourselves who will leave music behind even if it just singing in the shower.

Geoff,

Is that a yes or a no? :?

Doh what part of very important don't you understand.

 

I don't accept the premise that there will never be music, it will always exist and if there was a void then it would be created.

 

But just for you

Is music an essential part of life ? YES

 

could you live without ever listening to some kind of music ?- Don't accept that this will be the case there will always be MUSIC
