I hate having do so when someone's talking to me, or for whatever reason. If I arrive somewhere while listening to music, I'll usually chill until the song I'm listening to is finished unless I'm running late (and hope its not prog). Pausing a song midway for me at least definitely takes away the momentum and ruins the moment and the tension that can only be built up. It doesn't feel the same when resumed from a random spot. I prefer to start the song over again if I'm forced to stop it. Thoughts?

I pause songs at the ends of beats or between progressions if I gotta pause 'em

Pausing is so mainstream, I just turn it down and forget about it whilst leaving it playing.

Srs though if I'm into a song and actually focusing on the instruments and such then yeah it sucks.

Yeah I hate when someone starts talking to me during the best part of a song or somethin. Then I notice I'm on the next song and I'm like awww shit.

And I do the same thing in the car.

i hate when i pause a song to check something out on youtube or something then after i'm done watching i forget to play the song again and it's like an hour before i realize.
#7
Yes.

Also, I hate when I'm listening to an album or longer piece of music, not knowing my ipod is on shuffle, and when the track ends a track that SHOULDN'T GO THERE starts playing and it ruins the mood and sounds like someone has shat directly into my aural canal.

If I'm really trying to listen carefully, I'll go back to the beginning, but if I'm just playing it in the background, I'll just turn the volume to 0 and leave it playing.

Only if it's during a tension building section

I usually bump it back to the beginning.

Doesn't break my heart though.
#13
I either pause it at the end of a section like a chorus or verse, or just put it back to the begining/ start of next track

The worst is if you're sat on your own somewhere with headphones in (I'd get it all the time during breaks in college where I'd sit at a computer and go on youtube) and someone just rolls up and pulls your headphones off to talk to you. It's like...yah cheers. Not only did you break the atmosphere of the song...I now have to either restart it or rewind it..but I can't be bothered to do that because I've already listened to it once.
You've now just ruined my song. Asshat.
argh

It depends how "into it" I am. If it is boring, then no. If it is something I find myself tapping my foot to, pausing it will ruin it.

yes. the first time i listened to Sleep's Dopesmoker album, which is basically just one long song, i had to pee 28 minutes in, but i didn't want to pause in the middle so i held it for the other 33 minutes of the song.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#20
Partly yes. I prefer the song and if possible the album to run in one "run".
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash
#21
Yeah, I hate this so much. I can't not start the song again, but if I do it makes the play count uneven and then I have to listen to all the other songs to make it even and I don't like being forced to listen to something.

Thank God I'm not the only person that does this. I've actually hidden the play count on my iTunes so it wouldn't drive me up the wall. But I still know sometimes.

Yes! It just ruins the atmosphere,and just the feel of the song.
Plus going from listening to some awesome music to listening to some retard speak sucks.

This, except I can't hide it. I KNOW THE NUMBERS ARE UNEVEN.

Only exceptions are songs I play guitar to, so the rest of the album will have 6 plays while the song I know on guitar has like 30, THAT doesn't bother me as much. However if one song is played once above everything else, I just go FUUUUUUUUUU-.

Aye, pausing a song ruins the flow n shit.

Semirelated: Sometimes I'll have one or two lines of a song stuck in my head all day at school, then I'll get in my car to go home and realize that they were the lines that were about to play when I paused the CD. It's a weird feeling.

Yes I hate it. I have to start a song over when that happens. That's why when people talk to me while I'm listening to music, I just take out one headphone.

It's so annoying when the first few songs of an album have one more play than the songs at the end of the album because I never get to the end.

I hear you man, drives me NUTS when people just stop a song. It actually feels ruder than interrupting someone's sentence.

The best solution I've found is wait until one of the choruses, or solos, and manually fade out.
