If You're Bored Then You're Boring...

I'm so bored of all of the music on all of my computers.

I click SHUFFLE SONGS and I skip 10-15 songs before I find one that I don't mind listening to...then I click through 10 more before I find another...

Even in the car...nothing on the iPod that I really want to listen to.

I need some musical refreshment...
Can you help with this?

To whom should I be listening?

Frankly, most "Pop" music has high probability of becoming "boring" simply because it involves so much repetition - from the beat, to the chord sequences, to the lyrics. Not knocking it - its just a fact: excessive repetition breeds familiarity breeds boredom.

So, I have two styles of music I listen to when I start to get "bored" of my library.

Jazz - because every performance is "alive" and improvised, and very little repeats, so the same recording over and over can still give you plenty of new and even unexpected things to latch on to.

Classic Rock - because songs that have become "classics" are classic for a reason - they stand the test of time and become more like an old friend than just another song.

Then again, you can just listen to all my music. That's a good idea too. :)
