I pretty much write music for me so yeah I listen to my own recordings.

I'd honestly fap to anything with a set of genitals as long as I find it aesthetically appealing.

it's like people who are always looking at themselves in mirrors.

I listen to my recordings on our split EP because of you.

I hate having albums with uneven plays on my media players, so every time I listen to your half of the EP I have to listen to my half too

I don't think there's any problem with it. I enjoy going back and listening to some old recordings I made, even if wasn't a complete song or anything. I don't get the same joy I get from listening to my favorite bands, but it's still fun to do it. However, I rarely think my music is good, but I feel like most people feel that way about their own music. But there are times when I'm listening to my music where I'm like 'damn, that shit sounds good'. I also have a fear of sharing my music with people I know, guess I should get over that...

It's really bad form to listen to your own music. That's why I wear quality soundblocking ear plugs when I play guitar.

There's a couple of my songs I really like listening to. Because, well, I think they're cool songs. Sure, it's a bit vain, and sometimes I'll think "Wow, I made that!", but who cares? It's not like I go around telling people to play my shit at parties or whatever.

Sure, I guess it's always going to be masturbatory to some degree, but I have no problems with listening to your own tunes. I suppose I'll justify this by listing off reasons why I listen to my own music from time to time:

-Observation of what I've written in the past. I'm a pretty critical person when it comes to my art, so listening to my music is a way of pinpointing things that I felt worked and didn't work, and then deciding what I want to include and exclude in the next piece that I write.

-The stuff I write and record is in the style of music that I love... at least to my best ability. Of course I'm going to enjoy it.

-My lyrics often deal with something significant that happened to me in the past. Listening to the songs is just another way for me to think back on those moments. I guess it keeps me from completely moving on from the past, but we all do this sort of thing sometimes, don't we?

Hey, I love listening to my own stuff. That's why I recorded the song - because I think it sounds cool.
