Too much of a good thing?

Too much of a good thing?

Back in the day, I’d get a CD and I’d listen to it. A lot. A CD was a considered purchase – if I was going to make the effort to go to the store and spend my hard earned money on it, it was going to be worth it. In the car, at the gym, at work, at home – I’d listen to it everywhere. The first few listens usually couldn’t be at work, because I’d be listening. Once my brain knew the album, then it could become soundtrack to whatever else I was working on.

I get that feeling all the time these days, although when I look over photographs I took only a few weeks ago I’m quite often pleasantly surprised at how fresh they are!

  1. That’s an interesting quote. By contrast, when you have MP3s available on request, you find it difficult to decide what to listen to. I am nostalgic for the days when good music was difficult to come by, and a third-rate copy of a cassette tape was a treasured find. …Not that I want those days back; the memory is good enough – I like my MP3s.
