The liner notes for Gil Scott-Herons last album included these words on listening to music -
"for the first time under optimum conditions. Not in your car or on a portable player through a headset...Get rid of all distractions (even her or him)...Turn off everything that rings or beeps or rattles or whistles...Listen all the way through. Think about what you’ve got."
I do that a lot. I make it a priorty to listen to music for one hour everyday. Just laying in my bed, listening to the music and only the music
