I will never ever like a song the first time I hear it.


I'm the exact opposite. The first time I hear a song played loud I know whether I like it.

And, to me, there is little better in this world than hearing a great song for the first time. Sticking with electropop, the first time I heard the song "Sleepyhead" was on a Palm Pixi commercial, and I immediately went to my computer to figure out the name of the song I just heard, and then I listened to it for about a week. Same with pumped up kicks. Same with Hang with Me, actually. And "hold on when you get love". And "The Riot's Gone" by Santigold. The Riot's Gone And crystalfilm by Little Dragon. And Brandy Alexander by Feist. Feist - Brandy Alexander

You get the idea.

Basically the way I know whether I truly love a song is whether I simply can't help myself from putting it on repeat for days or weeks after I hear it. It's a strange quirk I have. An ancillary benefit -- or detriment? -- of said quirk is that I can confidently speak of my musical likes and dislikes in rather emphatic tones.

Of course. When I was just getting more into classical and opera, Mozart's Requiem was my favorite. I decided to develop a finer ear for this kind of music, I should to different versions/interpretations of the same piece allowing me to listen for subtle differences/nuances between performances.

I do the same thing. It drives other people nuts. For me I each time I listen to it consecutively I hear something slightly different allowing me to move closer to the soul/essence of the song's core.

No doubt it's an amazing piece of music. What is your favorite variation?

I have to force myself to stop, or 'll literally go - for truly great songs -- a month with one song playing over and over. I try to limit myself to three or four days.

I prefer the Beyer Edition, in particular the 1986 performance conducted by Sigiswald Kuijken and performed by Le Petite Bande.

Do you get your classical music for free? I feel like I shouldn't be paying for something when the copyright expired like 200 years ago. I know, I know the performances themselves are copyrighted. I get it. But I still don't wanna pay for it.

Glad this isn't only me. I have already listen to the new QOTSA 40+ times.

lol, I live in the free world, i.e. I do not pay for anything. Really I do pay for the majority of what I have, with some small exceptions. The truth is that Mozart left me in his will, perfect copies of every recording of his music both preceding and subsequent to his death. It has been difficult to get some of the record industry numb skulls to cooperate, but eventually they concede. You see, Mozart and I met on a few occasions. He was quite an intriguing fellow, though quite moody at times and second only to Rasputin in terms of pure genius. He was rather taken by my journeys and my immortal plight. Perhaps it is time to reveal my true identity, I am Cartaphilus.
