Hi guys, sorry for the tardy response, but I don't get in that often to check the boards.

"It's not as much fun..."

Well, what's fun and what isn't is a subjective evaluation - something that varies from person to person and can depend largely on our background, and experiences growing up.

If I like any particular type of music, that doesn't mean you, or anyone else should.

Even with popular music a lot can depend on when you experienced it and how closely you identified with some of the imagery in the lyrics, style and presentation, what kinds of music your friends liked, and your own perception of what artists were "cool", and what wasn't.

I guess I was wondering if anyone else shared my thinking that music can be a very private and personal experience - without an audience. I mean if you love it, it seems to me that you might still have some relationship with it even if you were the only remaining human being on earth.

If nothing else, it might form a connection with your memories and help provide some semblance of sanity.
