How important to you is listening to music?

Some people listen to music every chance they get – silence is no fun! Others listen to music sometimes but enjoy silence sometimes too. And others don’t ever even think to put on music – silence is golden! Which kind of person are you? How important to you is listening to music?

If you feel like leaving a comment (which you know we always appreciate), please tell us when you listen to music. Is it in the shower? While you drive? While you cook dinner? All of the above? None of the above? And, as always, thanks for voting in the poll.

I’m more into PodCasts than music but enjoy listening to music once in a while.

I enjoy music a lot but a healthy dose of silence/nature is much appreciated too. Of late I have joined in with Saturday campground Karaoke fests where it is all for fun and a wide variation in quality & ability. I.E. some of us practice beforehand.

Prefer playing music to listening to it! Yay for fiddles and old-time music!

I couldn’t answer since like Joe said. I only listen to music when driving.

About the only time I listen to the radio any more is when driving the pick-up. When driving the RV we listen to books.

When camping I listen to music so that no one else can hear it. My rule is that everything I do has to stay within the confines of my site. That includes music and things like smoke from a fire.

I guess I haven’t needed constant music since my AM pocket radio stopped getting the kind of music I liked. What happened to Frank, Dean, Perry, and Andy?

Sorry to say, but I think they died, Kelly, along with several other really great singers. (Sorry, I shouldn’t be making a joke about it. But at least I didn’t put a 😆 after my comment.) Have a great day. 😀 –Diane

I understand but Tony Bennett doesn’t come in on my little red pocket radio any more either.

I shouldn’t be facetious, especially when talking about late, great people. Sorry. But that’s a bummer that you can’t listen to them. Time to upgrade your radio I guess, Kelly. I have a 50-year-old portable Afco radio in the bathroom that I listen to our local 24/7 news station. Other than that I listen to music in the background while I’m working, or in the car, but never when I’m at my mountain property. There I get to listen to the (large) creek that runs through it, and the wind rustling in the trees, and the birds singing, and sometimes the black bears running away from us in the bushes as we’re walking up the path through our property. 😯 Later, Dude – I mean Kelly. –Diane

If you have a smart phone you can download the Spotify app and get any kind of music you want! If you don’t mind listening to an ad after every fifth song or so it’s free. The subscription rate isn’t outrageous and will eliminate the ads. While setting up your preferences it will ask you to list a couple of your favorite singers, bands, groups, etc and it will make recommendations for you. It also will allow you to search for play lists that others have built that you can listen to. Ask your grand children to show you how to do it, that’s what I did LOL.

Thanks for the good info, Steven. I’m sure it was intended for KellyR, who couldn’t get some of his favorite singers on his station. I’ll make sure he reads your tip. Have a great day. 😀 –Diane

I like older rock and country but don’t blast it but my favorite thing to do is just to sit outside and listen to nature.

Once in awhile but not too often and really not wanting to hear the youngers what ever is it they listen to.

I like to listen occasionally when driving, always when cleaning fish, and sometimes when cooking. Rarely when just relaxing outside and enjoying nature.

Sirius 50’s and 60’s rock, works for me. Soothes the soul.

If it’s classic country I can listen to it, I don’t even listen to modern country. Racket roll don’t stand a chance.

As long as others do not inflict their choices on the other campers around the campground. I answered very important but the rule we have is that you can not hear the music more than 10 feet away from the outside speaker on the camper…better yet, use the headphones

Music can tell a wonderful story, or can just be polluting noise in disguise. We enjoy specific music at specific times and at other times peace and quiet.

We have Dish hooked up in our trailer and I can honestly say it’s mostly for the music. Yup. It certainly ISN’T for the news! If the Dish signal gets trashed by weather we go to Pandora, and if there isn’t cell service for that, we go to our iDroid for music we’ve loaded into it. Oh, and an iDroid is an old cell phone that we loaded up with all our fave music divided by type. Yep, we like our music!

Radio is used, but more difficult to find what I care to listen to. Thankfully, we have DVD and CD collections.

Growing up with classical music during awake hours, I soon learned with my 5 children that I could alter their collective mood by providing a musical background. I often tell people that music is my “drug of choice”. Sirius radio goes with me in my RV. Yes, very important, however, there’s a time for restful silence too.

Use to be necessary, Now we don’t even turn the radio on for anything. Don’t know what changed mentally, I just now enjoy the peace and quiet.
