Like when I show somebody a song and like tell them to listen to a part and I get shivers down my spine and they have no reaction, it makes me extremely angry. I seem to get emotionally drawn into music very easily while most people i know just listen. My mom for instance gets absolutely nothing from music.
What do you guys think of the difference of feelings with music and the way someone listens to it? Or times when this has happened and you just feel like hitting them?

Edit: I agree that personal taste comes into play but I'm more talking about how some people just don't feel anything from music. Just something to keep silence away. My mom for example, doesn't listen to music at all and literally if I'm like hey wait listen to this part coming up, she'll just be like o.k turn it off.

It may not be their taste. Some of my friends don't "get" metal, while it does quite a bit for me. So when I show them a song...no reaction. Same goes for when they show me a song of a genre that I don't find particularly compelling.

For me, it really depends on the song. The first time I listened to the full version of the meatspin song, I got a huge adrenaline rush and did a bunch of pushups. Sadly. Other times, I just listen and say 'oh thats cool/stupid.'

I get chills when me and my friend are jammin out together (him on drums, me on guitar) and we do something that sounds so awesome together that it would seem like we planned it but we had no intention of doing it. I love it, it just puts the biggest grin on my face.

I know what you mean.
Like the part at the end of Showbiz by Muse, when Matt goes extremely high, gives chills down my spine, while others just kinda go, oh, cool, or say that they suck.
ok, yeah. my name is silly because I signed up when I was 13.

Nobody seems to GET ska aside from me and a few friends. Ska can easily make a sh*tty day much better.

Great example of this is Hurt by NIN. I get instantly sad everytime I hear it, but sadly not many people can honestly have there mood affected by music....
#13
My sister said that her music is better then mine because it gives a good message (Hannah Montanna...ect.) I listen to Bands like Tool, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, ect..
#14
I know the shivers you are talking about...I always get them from 4:25-5:40 (esp. at 5:00) of Underoath's "Giving Up Hurts the Most" and in Haste the Day's "American Love" from 2:20 until the end of the song...you should check them out

This is exactly how I feel, I just don't get how music is just background noise for some people, I mean, I can see it not being your life as much as it is mine, but when I hear something amazing, and I get really into, some people laugh, and I get really pissed. Other people, in music class, jam bands, whatever, who dont practice, because they were "too busy playing video games" really piss me off. Some people get energy from other people, some people get it from themselves, but for me, it's music* and I just dont get how people can be different....

/rant

*by this I mean, music rules my emotion, and makes me want to get up and DO something.

I hate it when people take the lyrics word for word and are like "oh my god this song teaches horrible lessons."

For instance, Bad Habit by the Offspring.
"Open the glovebox, reach inside, gonna wreck this ****er's ride."

and people go "OMG THIS SONGS TEACHING KIDS TO SHOOT PEOPLE IN THE CAR"

No, that is not what the song is about. That wasn't a wonderful example, but I hope you get what I mean.

I get shivers down my spine every time I hear the solo for Whole Lotta Love. I'll make my friend listen to it, and the won't even react. BUt then again, they listen to the radio and techno.

or when they think overrated is a nicer way of saying somebody/something sucks and use it to address everything that they don't like that somebody else likes

It doesn't matter. I don't "get" a lot of art, or films. I never understood what my ex-missus saw in Klimpt's work, for example. Same way she never quite saw what was so good about Jimi.

You are allowed to get mad, but it's silly to get mad over a different opinion than yours. We're all guilty of it, but that doesn't make it any more acceptable.

I've played songs for people and they haven't thought much of them, and people have played songs for me and I've had the same reaction. It's different from person to person. Just let it go.

MY brother doesn't "get" music, in the sense that he doesn't really need to listen to it. I don't get why he loves computers so much.
#37
it makes me mad too.

i like music because it draws out of me emotions which i cant describe. but when i show it to someone and its just another sound to them, i get really annoyed

it frustrates me that when i try to explain that to most people, they have no idea what im talking about, too.
