    I used to not over ANALyze things and just listen to music but over the past 10 years or so I catch myself noticing things that just drive me insane. It kind of detracts from the music too!

    I listen to a lot of jazz. I play primarily country/ southern rock, so the difference in style and structure allows me to just enjoy the music, without trying to pick it apart.

    Being a musician for almost 30 years it’s hard not to analyze any type of music i hear, My brain just fires that way, I like that hook, the time, the melody, lyrics. or it just sucks like the the new OZZY!

    I’ve pondered that myself, being a musician (Singer/Songwriter) You do hear things differently with “bigger ears” so to speak. I don’t think I will ever listen to music quite the same as before I was writing and crafting songs.
    That said though I can still listen to something great and get completly swept up in it.
    I feel like it’s actually a real treat to hear music as a musician. For me it enhances the experience greatly as you hear things that maybe people who are not muscially inclined don’t hear and to listen to something great with other musicians is such a treat too because you know that look and connection when you are both hearing the same things. I wouldn’t trade my musician listening ears for anything.
    I am still so in love with music and as I teeter in both worlds between breaking it down to it’s lovely layers or just having it move me and wash over me as I press play over and over – I’m just happy to just explore yummy nugets of creativity
