I don't really listen to music. If I have a choice I prefer podcasts (which are my love see below for a list of my current faves) or some kind of teaching. I love interviews about people I'm interested in.
So I have a different relationship with music than most people.
It kind of takes me over. Not necessarily in a good way.
I watch the people around me listen to music while they work and I am completely incapable of such behavior. If I'm listening to music, I'm listening to music. It's hard for me to do other things at the same time. Don't get me wrong. I multitask. I'm a girl and I have ADD... multitasking isnt really a choice for me. Unless music is involved. Then it's a one track mind.
Music sometimes hunts me. It's like I'll hear a piece of a song and then that song is playing all the time and it won't leave me alone. I know everyone gets a song stuck in their head, but it's so distracting for me. It's like being interrupted by a child over and over while trying to do something. It won't leave me a alone and I feel as though I have to exorcise the song from my mind.
And so I go back to not listening to music. It's more peaceful in here without the soundtrack.
