From what I see, relatively few people really "love" music.
How many people do you know who devote an evening to just listening to music? Not hanging with friends with music playing, not listening while performing chores, not listening on IEM's to distract themselves from the bustle on their commute, but listening to music as a solitary activity on a consistant basis? Relatively few, from what I see.
This is not meant as a criticism, BTW. The things I mentioned are quite reasonable uses for music. But, in common with most hobbies or activities, there are far more casual music users than devoted ones.
That comes across a tad pretentious. Just because people do not all prescribe to the usage pattern of listening to music that you describe above, does not mean they "love" music any less than those that do. To me that's like saying a parent that stalks thier kids 24/7 and know everything they are doing at all times "loves" their children more than parents that give them space.
I can assure you, when I am singing my lungs out in my car, I love music just as much as anyone
