Do We Listen To Too Much Music?

You know I have been thinking lately, well no, I haven’t actually.
Never mind that.
I haven’t been thinking.
But I have been listening a lot.
To music specifically.
I should not deceive you and say that I have been listening to the sounds of life.
To the glory of nature that God has created for us to enjoy.
No.
It’s music.
All music.
All the time.
Everywhere I go there is a song blasting from the radio.
When I go to work.
Each room at my job.
When I am in my car.
When I go out to a restaurant.
When I am at home.
In whatever room I am in.
Whether I am playing video games or reading or even doing this, listening to music is apart of it.
Sometimes I don’t even realize that the song is on.
But I ask, why?
Why do I have to listen to so much music?
To songs that I have heard before?
And more importantly, do I listen to too much music?
Is that even possible?
Is it bad that we are all accustom to hearing songs in whatever environment we are in?
Is it good that we love music to the point that we make sure it is included in every aspect of our lives?
I don’t really know.
But I am at least going to ask the question.
Why does everything in our society need music in it?
Don’t we listen to enough of it?
If not, then when is enough?

  1. Sometimes you need quiet. However, I prefer too much than too little. I tend to notice when I have been listening to too little music, when life is filled with tedium and running around getting stuff done. Then I have to make an effort to listen to album after album to restore the equilibrium 🙂
