So I was talking to one of my co-workers and bored as we were, the conversation floated from topic to topic.

So of course we get to music, like most civilized people do, and I ask her what her favorite music is.

And she says, and I quote, "oh god, I hate music."

I hesitated for a second, and then I was like "what?"

"Yeah, I don't like music at all. It's kind of pointless really."

Maybe I'm just an idiot, but seriously, someone just flat out not liking music?
I thought she was messing with me or something, but I mentioned it to another co worker of mine and he confirmed that she hated music and said that his aunt hates music as well.

I've NEVER met anyone that didn't like music.
It's such a huge part of our culture.
Music inspires books, narrates our films, and is even played in the background of every fricken commercial for christs sake.

Call me an idiot, but I honestly didn't think it was possible to hate music.
Certain kinds of music, yeah, but music as a whole? No way.

She is obviously mentally ill in some manner. There is no one, and I mean NO ONE, on the planet earth, who doesn't like music. I guarantee you that if you took all music out of the life of someone who says they hate it, they would practically go INSANE.

I don't see what's the big deal. Does everyone like poetry? Does everyone like literature? I don't even care about painting and visual art. What's so special about music?

I dunno. It just seems that no matter where you go, there is music.
It's as natural as breathing.

I've just always been under the impression that everyone likes at least some kind of music.

And no matter where you go there's other forms of art as well, which can arguably be just as natural. For plenty of people, music is not a serious enjoyment but rather just something to have in the background or even not at all. I don't see any problem in it.

Didn't say there was a problem.

Just saying that I've never met anyone that actually hated music.

Not caring too much for it, yeah. But hating music? Like I said, seems strange to me.

I know somebody who genuinely doesn't like music.

She doesn't hate it or anything
She just doesn't listen to music or suggest anything about it.

Maybe she's just never heard anything she liked and hasn't bothered to find something she does like. I don't give a crap about poetry and I loathe reading it. I know that if I took the time and effort to really study it, I'd be able to appreciate it, but I just don't have enough interest to begin with to want to care. And actually, I took art history this semester and now I'm able to really analyze paintings, yet I still don't give a crap about painting and visual art. The masterpieces of Van Gohg and Manet doesn't do anything for me.

You're absolutely not alone, I had a similar experience about a year or two ago.

It was after dinner with a couple friends of mine, and afterwards I was talking to this one girl I knew fairly well (or at least thought I did, until then) and we happened upon the topic of music. I must of been asking her what she liked listening to the most, to which she responded

"Oh, nothing really."

I was just kind of taken aback, and she could see I was confused.

"I just don't really like music."

After which I just had to say, "Well, I mean, you have to like something. I mean, it's just so broad."

"No, not really. It seems pointless to me." And so on and so forth, basically just what you were talking about in your post. I was just completely blown away, I didn't even know what to say at all. I had never before met someone who just didn't like music, at all. That sad thing was, I couldn't help but have trouble ever talking to her again after that, and honestly (as bad as it sounds) thinking less of her.

Honestly, I can't even imagine what that would be like. That would be like trying to imagine being born blind or deaf. I just can't do it. I can't think of a single moment where I'm not either playing music, thinking about it, listening to it, any combination thereof, or at least have something playing in my mind.

Tl;dr - You're not alone, I had a very similar experience.

I find that to be extremely selfish. Just remember that not everyone is you and vice versa.

Don't get me wrong, it wasn't intentional at all. I actually felt really guilty for thinking that way, but I had trouble helping it. And honestly, I doubt I'd feel that way for anything other than music.

EDIT: I of course mean that last statement within reason of "anything".

That's Bullsh*t! I can understand MAYBE not "appreciating" music, but to hate it...or any artform for that matter,I maen,I'm no fan of modern art, but I at least don't HATE it. To hate any artform is inhuman, you should kill her, she is a demon. Oh, and that whole"You're a bad person for thinking less of her..." thing...That is also bullsh*t, you can TOTALLY think less of her, she is unintelligent,unenlightened, and a bad person for HATING art, that is like hating love, or hating expression...it is just wrong. I can't even believe that...I'm pissed off now.

THat really doesn't make sense to me. Music is probably the most popular thing in the world, as far as entertainment goes. Weird.

Up until around 3 or 4 years ago (so, I was around 13/14), I never liked any music at all.

3 years ago I started listening to more then one band (for the year before, all I listened to was starsailor).

Now I have a shitload of music.

It's not unusual to not like, or hate, music.
