When trying to spread the good word and convert people to classical music, their argument against it is usually that "it gives me a headache" or "it's not relaxing enough". Has anyone had similar experiences?
The same to me. That's why I always carry my SSET*, which is conveniently used if situation calls.Most people around me think the opposite: they find it completely boring and they imagine every piece of classical music is the same long, slow movement.
I went through a similar phase!! Except it was punk rock, metal, and ska...and now, i secretly laugh at my friend/competition, who hasn't discovered the JOY of classical music. And modern music lacks the wonder and emotion that sprouts from classical music. Techno, hip hop, rap, rock....they all just sound really raw and unsophisticated.Classical music is boring......that is a perception alot of people have who won't give it a chance. I thought the same during my Rock/Metal listening days.
But in fact nothing could be further from the truth. It's the most exciting and diverse music there is to discover! There is nothing boring about it at all!
To me, today's modern popular music sounds boring to me, it all sounds the same. Monotonous beats, no imagination.
Good point, but maybe releasing people from their closed minds could be beneficial. It would also enable them to have more open minds in all aspects of life as well.Different people like different things. World would be a pretty boring place if we all liked the same things.
O.K. I'm guessing that bubblegum pop is something you eat or drink, so if you don't like it, that's the natural response of your body. It's a completely seperate issiue. If anyone came up to me and said "the natural response of my body is to hate classical music" I would say there was something wrong with their body.I don't like bubblegum pop. Does that make me close-minded?
I recall a co-worker once said to me - "How can you like music that doesn't have any lyrics?".When trying to spread the good word and convert people to classical music, their argument against it is usually that "it gives me a headache" or "it's not relaxing enough".
Oh man....song's aren't the only type of music around! i mean...if he liked rock or techno....sometimes the piece is only notes, no lyrics.I recall a co-worker once said to me - "How can you like music that doesn't have any lyrics?".
I don't bother trying to convert anyone to classical music, because I don't think it's respectful of the preferences of others.
