How Long Does It Take To Get "Into" A Song?
« on: November 14, 2015, 08:33:33 am »
Its a funny question but how long does it take usually for you to get into a song. What I mean by that is, its very rare for me to hear a song, no matter what genre it is, and instantly like it. It always take quite a few listens before I either start to like it or start to hate it. For main stream music and house/glitch songs it usually doesn't take that long. However, dubstep usually take a lot more listens before I like the song. For instance, there have been songs I didn't like at all at first but after many listens they now some of my favorite songs of all time! It can be quite annoying though as when looking for new music nothing really stand out at first and I need to repetitively listen to tracks before I start to find some I like.

 What about you guys? Is it hard to find new music and like it straight away or am I just really strange and its just me who has this problem?

I understand what you're saying as its the same for me. I usually need to hear a song around 3 times before I know if I like it or not. Sometimes I'll love a song the first time I hear it but that's pretty rare for me

      Most songs can easilly catch my interest as long as I like the sound of the music and the lyrics are well sung. Some songs take longer for me to catch on to because they aren't imcredibly stunning to me when I first hear it. After I hear it a few times, I find myself liking the song a lot. There are a lot of songs I never like, and here recently, they've all been comtemporary. I've fallen out of genre favoritism lately because not much sounds great as of now. I find the best music is released in the Spring and Summer, so I'm anticipating some outstanding music for 2016. I'm watching new groups such as the Cold War Kids to make a big move. I was proud of The Killers when they became popular back in the Fall because Somebody Told Me became a hit. I heard that song probably near two years before it struck the charts. It was one of the songs that I caught on to. It had a great deal of rock mixed with some electronic elements.

If it doesn't catch my interest immediately, then it's unlikely for me to re-listen to it.
However, should I find a song that I enjoy I can find that I could just sit there, listening to it.
I have play lists made, and I have had several days where all I did was listen to music

It depends if i'm familiar with the genre, if I listened to something similar before, i'd think i be more inclined to like it, if not i would need to listen to it a couple of times or come back to it another day.

For me, it really depends.
Some songs I like the first time I listen to them.
Others I have to listen to a few more times to see if I really enjoy them.
And sometimes I may not like the song at first but after hearing it on the radio or wherever a lot, it starts to grow on me until I like it. :3

Between a few hours to a week. What usually happens is either I instantly like it, and start playing it over and over until I know all of the lyrics or I first dislike the song, then I start singing some of the lyrics, go back to listen to it again and realize that I like it.

I usually can't find new music. I usually start listening to new songs that there was a part of the song that I really like and then listen to it over and over again till I love it :p.

This is an interesting question. For me, it really depends. When I first discovered Lyre Le Temps and Animal Collective, I had to listen to a song several times before I found myself enjoying it. On the other hand, there are things like The Antlers and Sleeping at Last where I can get hooked on a song ten seconds in.

Sometimes I can tell I'm going to love a song within the first measure or two! Other times I decide that I don't like a song, rediscover it a few months later, and find that I've suddenly grown to like it! So for me it all just depends.  :fox-:P:

I can almost rap along because I listen to it so much. It makes me question what I'm doing with my life.

I'm normally pretty quick to judge a song. I can usually decide whether or not I like the song by the first chorus though. Certain times, I even decide sooner than that if I absolutely despise what I'm hearing. For me to become a fan of a song, I normally have to listen to it a few times to decide if I really like it that much. I'm not like so people either who are completely fine with a song just because of who sings it. That's a form of fan loyalty which I understand, but if my favorite band makes a song and I don't like it, I'll admit that they made a poor song. For songs by bands I like, I normally give the song a little longer before I judge it though. I normally listen up to the bridge then because sometimes the bridge can absolutely change a song.

Completely depends on the song. Some are catchy at first but lose their appeal quickly. Some get passed over but end up being favorites after a several listens down the line.

Thank you so much for this! :')
