Forums → The Tavern → Is music more about your "Group" now?
(Not sure if this is Popular Media or not. Move it if you need to.)
Note: All italics are thinking.
So, while listening to some music a friend (More of an acquaintance but still...) came over and asked what I was listening to. I was listening to some Pink Floyd song (Forgot the name :/). After telling him the name he had this weird look on his face that I just couldn't place. After a small awkward pause he said, "OH! That's the band my Dad likes. Why are you with us? The people that like music are over there dude. "
Wait, because I listen to this music it means that I can't talk to you. Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't know that my music taste has such an affect on my personality.
So, what do you think? After this conversation I spent a week just looking at different groups of people and comparing their musical taste. To my surprise, nearly everyone in a certain group liked the same style of music.
So, do you think music is more about an image that is supposed to represent you more than it is about what you actually like listening to?
Oh, the stoners listen to classic rock, the "Popular" kids are into electronic and the emos are all about metal. Which one are you?
Wait, but I listen to all of those genres!
YOU CAN ONLY CHOOSE ONE!
Anyway, just needed to vent and thought it would be a nice topic. Why do people care so much about music taste?
*Pulls out shotgun*
No. Not for me. My best friend is into rap, im into rock. So yeah, it isnt that big of a deal most of the time. I do notice that it is very easy to talk to people who like the same music. They tend to think the same.
I'm into orchestral, which isn't as groupable as the rest.
I don't think it has anything to do with music affecting your style, it's the other way around. People hang out with others like them, music is a factor.
...the "Popular" kids are into electronic...
You don't know me, you're too old let go its over, nobody listens to techno.
I think music depicts one person in general not a group. for example me and my cousin are in the same group of friends and all of our friends as well as the both of us listen to completely different types of music. I listen to all gerunds, or at least I try, my cousin mostly to rap and rock, etc.
so the type of music defines you not the group. your friend/acquaintance is dead wrong.
