I hate to admit it, but I’m not the socialest person around. I like music from older decades (mostly 80s) personally. Still I have noticed people who enjoy similar or almost similar stuff with me, tend to be less social as well, whilst the more social people are more into current stuff.
Guess a reason why this is happening, is because it takes some time and effort to “dig through” older music, since it’s not brushed into your face unlike current stuff. And this time obviously, is taken from your social life.
I don’t regret it though, since I am pretty satisfied about the amount of music I’ve listened to so far.
Sorry, I don't agree with your statement or reasoning. I love older music, new music, all music and like to think I'm very social. it really doesn't take a lot of effort to experience old music. It's as easy as clicking a button on your phone.
But the lack of social behavior due to musical taste could be for lots of reasons... -Modern music lacks substance. -There aren't many clubs that support anything other than mainstream current music. -The generalized opinion that it's old... technically (totally not intending to offend, I often forget things like this too) 80s music IS 30+ years old. Lol, when I'm rocking out to Another One Bites the Dust, I tend to forget it's 36 years old and that's why the "kids" think I'm weird 😊
That's an interesting observation. I've noticed that people who are really social usually just listen to whatever's on the radio, and they don't appreciate older music. I'm really into music from the 70's and 80's and I'm not very extroverted. I love a deep conversation with someone interesting, but frequently hanging out with large groups of people or going to parties mentally drains me, haha.
Not necessarily. I like newer and older music but I tend to listen to the newer stuff more often because like you said, it's always brushed in your face and is more easily accessible. And even though I listen to newer stuff more often I'm pretty introverted.
But who knows, I could be in the minority.
