I listen to predominantly hard rock, metal, newer bands
But also listen to soothing blues, electric blues, alternative music
and...when I'm in the bath...I listen to Magic Merlin: The Heart of Reiki  exclusively (and always burn a candle)

btw...I am listening to Emma_Acid's track...it's very interesting...but now, it is making me a little nervous... :unsure2:

I think it is simply because that is what we listened to during our formative years.  It really doesn't matter how old a person is either...people who are in their nineties enjoy listening mostly to the music of their youth.  It's always Classic when it is what we knew way back when.

Starting with Guillaume de Machaut (14th.Cent.), through the Renaissance and on to 19th.Cent. 'work & war' folk music. 20th.Cent? - Floyd, Stones, Doors, Steeleye Span styles. Modern? Not a single scrap!!!

-1- Why do people love music a lot, and why do others not care much for it at all (yes, they do exist, lol)?

Actually, I'd say that out of all the creative outputs and arts, music is the most universal. You'd be hard pressed to find someone who isn't interested in it.

-2- Why do some people prefer to listen to only one kind music (jazz OR blues, OR classic OR folk OR rock OR love songs, and so on), and why do others love many kinds of music?

People only listen to 1 type of music for same reason they only eat the same food, watch the same films and never travel abroad. Probably.

-3- Does the kind of music you listen to depend on the mood you are in, and/or is music able to change your mood?

Absolutely. Altho, out of 40,000 tracks on itunes, I'll be honest - there isn't a lot of happy clappy stuff on there. Think its harder to do darkness well, and with less clichés, than it is to be bright and jolly.

-4- What other effects does music have on you? Does it help you to concentrate, to forget, to remember, to want do physical exercises, what?

I'm a designer, so its invaluable. Without music, I'm distracted to do something else every 30 seconds. With music I zone out for hours and just concentrate on my work. And before I know it, its home time!

No. Its probably more to do with upbringing. Those who listen to classical music probably (I say probably) had a more academic upbringing. Also, all music has an element of musical and social theory behind it - so anyone of any IQ can be into any type of music.

It's poetry, ok, but not music.

I listen to everything. Including classical and rap. I don't particularly like anything after the year 2007. Not sure why. It just doesn't feel real anymore. There is no emotion in the garbage "musicians" spew out these days.

Anyway here is my story; As a young boy, I listened to whatever my mother listened to. Which included rock, modern pop, rap, alternative (all of this on the same radio station.) Then we would listen to country or sometimes classic rock from the 70s or 80s. When she married my stepdad, we were basically forced to listen to exclusively country, because it was the only station we could pick up. So I obtained a CD player and some CDs. Then I purchased a better radio and was able to hear a rock station. Then I got heavily into hard rock music and 80s metal. Eventually, I wanted more so I got into heavy metal new and old. I began to despise newer country songs so I altogether stopped listening to it. I lost taste for pop and rap during this time as well. At some point I started listening to 50s and 60s rock, blues and pop. I even like disco when the mood strikes me. I'm not sure how I got into classical. I guess it was subconsciously through movies and video games. I also enjoy music from other countries such as Rammstein from Germany and I listen to a lot of Japanese rock and pop (because of anime.)

I like listening to metal when I am angry. Classical or something calm when I want to relax. When I want to feel nostalgic, I might play some Fuel or Matchbox Twenty. But other than that I just listen to whatever my iPod plays next.

I listen to all kinds of music. Rock is my favorite. I like the genre, and it incorporates other genres and styles of music. That keeps things interesting. I preferred hard rock and heavy metal when I was a kid. I added alternative rock to the mix when I was in high school. Unfortunately, I can't remember the names of a lot of new acts. Part of that is generational, and part of that is marketing (grist for another thread).

There is one reality with billions of versions.

If rap is poetry then the meaning of the word poetry has taken a serious nosedive since the creation of the word.

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

Depends on my mood and what I need the music for. I prefer dance/trance beats free from 'emotional imprints' for meditation over mellow and slow. I'm a fan of the 80's 90's because i think music was just better then and more feel good. When I'm relaxing i like enya, chillout, Celtic folk music. I go through times where i don't like to listen to anything at all because it imprints too much. Rather than making me feel centred i start to feel /read everything the creator experienced and felt, and its not always nice.
