And all this is if you even know the song, since you won’t just overhear it on the radio or be as casually/passively experienced with music as everyone else who knows what albums are coming out. We can’t casually experience it, not quite so easily, so at least for me it’s just not as much a normal a part of the fabric of life. So when the beat drops and everyone’s singing along, I/(probably we) feel very left out. So that’s another motivation to ‘experience’ music more.Even worse is when there’s some higher pitched or subtle prelude to a song before the heavier notes hit, and everyone gets hyped and into the song’s vibe when you don’t even hear a thing. So you’re just standing there in the middle of the crowd just watching. Also sucks.Everyone lives and breathes music and sounds and soundtracks. Everyone has conversations with each other from the other side of the room. On the phone. In groups. All the stuff we get left out of. But at least music has pieces that we can all get involved in, and can actively do things to be more involved (ie looking up lyrics). And again, music is just fun. So that’s the motivation to overcome the difficulties more than just letting it all go.
