If you're anything like me, you get songs stuck in your head all the friggin' time. You have music in your car, music while you're doing the housework, music behind those dog rescue clips on Youtube, music on TV, music on your phone, music in the shopping centre. It's no wonder we hum and sing to ourselves during those rare moments of quiet. Have you ever wondered what life would be like if music was a treat for special occasions, or used only for spiritual purposes? I was thinking this the other day, and thought a special event would be so much more exciting, a spiritual experience that much richer, if music hadn't been filling your ears all day leading up to it. So, I'm going to switch off the music, and see what happens. I'll be limiting my exposure to music as much as I possibly can. No music in the car. No music during housework. No music playing in the background while I play Minecraft. I'll endeavour to keep my mind relatively music-free for one week as of 16 July, and report back on 23 July. (EDIT: July... I mean't July!) I think some of the magic of music is lost in our over-exposure, and our minds preoccupied with processing these sounds so much. What are your thoughts?
