Let it be a weekend or at work, at the dinner or while just whiling away time I love humming tunes in my head and Music is just everything I need to survive on. I always feel that music lovers like me struggle to survive among the others. Sometimes, others look at us like we’re weirdos who are always humming tunes, doing head bobs and everyone around is judging us like “What is wrong with this human?” Here I’m going to list down a few struggles of a music lover.
THIS IS MY JAM
This is a classic. Most of the songs that have been ever written looks like it is about you. Sitting at a coffee place, you are sipping coffee and all of a sudden your attention is drawn to this Song on the player and your face lights up and there is a voice in your head that says “Dude this is so my Song”. By the time you have even realized everyone is just looking at you and you have to silently turn away and let the awkward moment just pass.
I CAN’T HELP IT – IT IS A REFLEX
You know how when someone tries to hit you, you just duck that is a reflex, it has no control of your own. For music lovers, that reflex is a head bob or just naturally singing out loud. You are just standing at a bus stop and suddenly everyone is just looking at you wondering what it is about and you suddenly realize that your head and your feet have already started to reflex their movement out on your jam.
I FOUND GOLD
The only job which we as music lovers consider worth doing is updating the music on our device, for us that is the most productive thing to do. And on a happy weekend all we do is go through that whole list and all of a sudden there is an old song that you haven’t listened to in a long time but you know that it was your jam and in excitement, there are a joy of tears and this overwhelming feeling that takes over. Want to talk about emotional drama? This is it for us.
MY LIFE IS ABOUT CONCERTS
Concerts are our sacred space, it is almost like we worship and attain peace of mind there. Just going through the social media feed and all of a sudden a concert notification just pops up and then there is this inert happiness that normal people are not capable of understanding. I think the only time we dress at all is when getting ready for a concert. Music is God.
ROAD TRIP DOWN THE MUSIC LANE
When friends in the group even mention about a road trip in the coming month your mind already wanders away to the songs that you are yet to download, and the feeling of the music taking over when the breeze hits you in the car and it seems like the only exciting part of the trip to you. While all your other friends are jotting down a backpack list you are structuring a mind map of all the songs that are to be carried on the trip.
PHONE ROM MORE LIKE “MY SONGS GOT MORE ROOM”
Other than being incredibly interested in conversations about music we also pay keen attention to the conversations of the salesperson of phones. Weird Right? I’ll tell you why because there will be a part of the conversation where after all the features of the camera which you have subtlety ignored will follow a part where he is talking about the specifications of the phone like the internal memory and if it is good your mind is already calculating the number of songs you! can store. And suddenly you are a math wiz kid. Not so weird now. Huh!
