I think it is something to learn that people shouldn’t hate something exaggeratedly because maybe in another point in their life they might be in love with what they hate. Like my relationship with EDM for example.
Like you and everyone else in the world, my music journey varies in many stages. I remember I was still listening to Joshua, Sherina and Chikita Meidy until I officially converted to non-children music when I heard The Corrs on MTV in my 4th grade. Going Britney Spears in the end of my elementary school, RnB and alternative rock bands in junior high, highly into Japanese Pop/Rock in high school, and for many years in college I settled hearing John Mayer, jazz, classic, mostly acoustic well-played actual music instruments, also a significant number of songs from indie bands. *hipster alert* lol
I never thought I would gravitate towards dance music in my entire life. I used to think that dance music is too loud and uncoordinated and.. my God.. why would people enjoy those weird tweaking synthetic sounds from a computer? why would people call this object a ‘music’ anyway? No lyrics? really? I just didn’t get it.
