Why don't you make the effort to learn more about the private life of some pop starlet? Maybe it would make you appreciate her fabulous edginess more.
Sorry... I guess I did get a little off topic. I'll work on making my comments more relevant and less... well... I sort of did sound like a jerk in my previous comments. I'll work on making my comments better in general.

Like I said before, I like the music because it's music. I know very little about the composition or the composers. To be honest, I probably know more about pop bands than I do classical composers. I just wish some more people my age would listen to it more, without using it to fall asleep or study better.

Wow, we're getting way off topic from my first post.

So this thread predictably really is basically just about how it sucks that people around you have different tastes and interests?

No. I said I was frustrated that classical is being advertised the wrong way. Like I said, people see it as sleep music because it's advertised that way. We got off topic. I'm sorry if I was unclear.

Advertised by whom, how and towards whom?
How would you prefer it to be advertised?

I honestly can't say I know. I'm not going to pretend that I'm an advertising expert and say that I know something that I don't, but I can tell you that essentially advertising it as boring is not going to do so well. If no one learns to appreciate it as an art instead of some kind of magical sleep potion, what's going to happen to it?

Classical music is widely and almost universally regarded as the artsiest form of music there is. What are you talking about?

There are a lot of people who, yes, call it a high art form, but let's say there's someone who says they appreciate classical music but doesn't listen to it often unless they're in the mood. Ask them the last time the listened to classical music of their own accord when they weren't studying or sleeping. Most likely they won't be able to answer. Of course, not all people are like this. Generalizations always have exceptions. But in my experience, they've been in the minority. I know maybe 4 people who actually listen to classical music on a regular basis, and only one is under 40. And she's a music major!

It's also often regarded as elitist and too high-class. There are always two sides to a coin.

That's not what I'm saying. Stop twisting my words.
I said classical is being advertised wrong, which would not help more people enjoy it more. You're saying that it is regarded as very artsy. I responded and said that whether or not people supposedly think that, it's not really having that much of an impact on what people really think. I don't care if some people have different tastes than I do. I care if they refuse to appreciate it at all.
