Honestly, I’ve never really been interested in music as a ‘thing’. For reasons I don’t really understand, I don’t quite get it on some level. When I listen to a song I’m always straining to make out the lyrics, because it’s only the words that are meaningful to me, and in the case of a lot of pop songs the lyrics are total nonsense. A piece of music only means something to me once it’s connected to a story or an experience. In isolation it’s just noise.
