Hey Mr. D.J, Please Leave...

We all go through the age where you can’t do anything without the beat. All you need is your favorite playlist and there you are in euphoria. Then there also comes an age when music only appears some meaningful words put together in rather silly way while an intolerable noise plays along. For some extremely insightful souls this age hits earlier than average. Friends excitedly share that one relatable song in every new album. And just to fit in you pretend to like it, even when you find it terribly exhausting. Actually you find it highly disturbing, for the fact that you relate to it perfectly.

There are many reasons to hate music, or let’s rephrase that. The reasons we listen to it, are messed up in the first place. Now we break it down in steps. Music is one exclusive incredible shovel to the long buried memories. It identifies and makes it all obvious in seconds. (We are talking about meaningful music, to be clear the music you love.) At this point denial becomes harder so you start to accept your failure. Failures, which were long forgotten by the present success in other areas. However this unlocked rage triggers various hasty rational motives to quench it. Since music didn't account for a cure.  

What music any broken soul would prefer on a gloomy long drive? To be honest even a happy, crazy party song is enough for a man to deliberately BANG into a cargo truck on the freeway. Yep such is the connection of some beautiful rhymed words with your heart.  Okay maybe an over exaggeration but both ways the damage is equal.


No matter what mood you are in, music can turn it upside down without you realizing it. We already have enough exposure to it in the places we cannot avoid. In malls, stores, public transports, TV, radio, and what not. Why in the word you’d want to kill the peaceful time you get alone with the same distracting noises? 
Turn it off to give your best to the work you love and respect. Also when you manage to get the happy hour, it should be about you without the intrusion of any foreign influences. Turn it off ‘cause your success story has its own awesome background music…!
