And they all seem to be listening to the same song (I'm using that word very loosely..) again and again. Who knows, maybe there are mind control waves hidden in it.

Around here, it's Mexican music and all I can really hear is the bass. All the songs on their cd's seem to have the same bass lines. My neighbors did learn to keep it down once I took to practicing on the tin whistle. When the bass music comes on, the tin whistle comes out. Christmas is just around the corner and I must practice my Christmas carols. I can practice late into the night if need be and can play in the high scale (the dogs do need to be put outside for this).

I just bought a small tin whistle in the key of G. I definately have to let the dogs outside before playing a tin whistle in the key of G!

It's a strange thing. In all the years I've been hearing people blasting music from their cars, you'd think at least one of those times it would be a song I like. But no. Just the opposite, in fact. In my hometown in TN it was always rap, here it's almost always metal. My two least favorite genres.

Good music doesn't need to be blasted to be enjoyed.

I've often said that taste in music is in direct inverse proportion to the volume it's played.

If it is driven past the point of distortion, is it still music? Or just noise?

It's simply a quantity verses quality thing...

I really have to laugh as the kid next door was working on learning some musical instruments... and the first darn thing he did was plug in and amplify his lousy practices that sounded like someone killing a water buffalo... I went over there time and time again and banged on the door (we are talking months and months of this crap) and when he finally heard the door he would schlep out and ask "wha..." only to have me tell him over and over that volume is NOT something he needed to practice. I pointed out that Mozart was deaf later in life and certainly didn't hear the beauty he created. I kept encouraging him to go acoustic. The kid never quite got it. He finally moved out.

My wife has a keen comment to any driver that she pulls up next to that is playing that "noise" in their car... she tells them to "turn it up, it's my favorite song." Confuses the heck out of them.

Now on the flip side... I really miss the guy that used to practice his bagpipes in the local park. Yeah I know most folks think they sound like a dying goose, but I happen to enjoy pipes... and this guy was good.

No doubt some lovers of silence probably threatened him.

On the positive side: Boomboxes got replaced by walkmans (walkmen?) and iPods. And disco is dead!

That's why the kid blew you off. He knew that Mozart died young, at 35, so he couldn't have been deaf later in life. It was Beethoven who was the deaf composer. Neither practiced music at deafening levels so while you are right about hearing damage from excessive noise, they were not the best examples.

Here's something that should help.
