My music mojo seems to have upped and left me. I don’t know if this is just an age ting or just because teen music these days is just so bad. I use to like all the latest songs as much as the next and till fairly recently could be caught strutting my stuff in the kitchen to the latest beat. Â But a recent car journey with the teenager and top 40 CD left me running for ear muffs. Didn’t help matters that I didn’t have a clue who any of the warblers were and had to ask the teenager on every song who it was.
In the daytime when I am working I like silence. I don’t even listen to the radio as it distracts me too much so I really am not up on what’s playing these days. So when did I suddenly realise that all the teen music sounds the same or that I actually didn’t like their choice of words.
I thought that it was just a case of being out of the loop too long and that the being forced fed the top 40 several times would restart my like for modern music. Alas after about the third repeat of the songs I was planning to release the CD out the car window in a Frisbee type move.
Is it something we all go through as we get older? Do our ears and minds eventually grow up and decide that they no longer like certain kinds of music? Am I actually missing out on anything by not listening to it all?
