I have a collection of MP3 music on the PC I use at work. Most days I spend some time under my headphones listening to the music I like.
Only is it really the music I like?
Sometimes I find myself listening to things that I believe I like and I wonder, ‘do I like this because it does something for me or because the masses like it and I want to be like them?’
Wow. That’s pretty heady. More than music, do I like anything from my self, or is it all the result of wanting to be like everyone else? Eeeeuuuu. If I like things just to be like everyone else then am I really an individual at all? Or am I just a mirror of the fads, tastes, likes and dislikes of my generation?
I guess I am really starting to closely examine my motives for almost everything I say, do or think. What really makes me tick? Why am I me and not someone else?
What do you like?
