Why should you care about music?

I have a love/ hate relationship with music. Well, more obsession/ apathy. Sometimes it makes me feel something so intense nothing could compare. But then I can happily live without it (even if I’m not really living without it) for years on end.

I think maybe it’s a burden, like being in love with someone, that a lot of people can’t keep up forever. After a while you have to let go of the weight of it and cleanse your soul.

I wonder how people (singers and musicians) can dedicate their lives to it. I guess, why does anyone dedicate themselves to anything?

Without silence you can’t appreciate sound.

But we all need something or even things (if we’re lucky enough) to get us through the day.

Music plays with your emotions though and that’s not easy for someone who likes to control theirs.
