I have grown surrounded by music. My family used to listed to music, I sung in the school choir, played some guitar and then worked for 6 years in an AC radio station. Have learnt a lot and music is indeed important to me.

Cannot imagine a person who dislikes music overall. Perhaps some genres, but most people love some kind of music IMO.

I can deal with most music, but country and rap tend to be at the bottom of the list for me.

Sorry for the serious necromancy but I didn't want to start a new thread just for the sake of complaining about my dad, who hates all music except for Pink Floyd and the Cranberries. Any theories on why these particular artists would be the only palatable groups for someone in their mid-50s? He literally considers all other music to be noise. His brain does not process tunes or songs, either, but instead he hears music monotone, if that makes sense. As a child I one time heard him trying to sing the bridge of "Living on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi (while drunk) but he was actually just saying the lyrics in a way so far from the melody of the song that it wasn't until earlier this year that I realized where it came from.

Puzzled. Seeking creative and insightful responses to this question.

Do you mean he can't distinguish pitch? If so, I'm surprised he likes any music.

There are all kinds of people. Nice Gaia shout out, by the way.

Quite possibly. Does that imply that the Cranberries and Pink Floyd lack pitch? hahaha. I'm just so mystified. Why those two bands?

Maybe he has some kind of happy memories associated with them.

I have a friend that does't really get nuch of an emotional response on any type of music. He doesn't hate music, he just doesn't care for it. Poor him.
