Classical Conditioning

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Has anyone else had the experience of developing a lasting liking of a song(s) which is far outside of your typical music preferences, when said song is accompanied by visual (or other) stimuli that you do like?


I have always liked Marvin Gaye's 'Lets Get it On' after hearing it on a skate video in the 90's, which I watched repeatedly. I couldn't imagine I would have taken to that song at that point in my life if I listened to it without the visual element, as I was a hardcore metal head at the time.


I find it interesting how we develop our preferences for different music throughout our lives. This maybe one of many possible ways that we do so.


Please share your related experiences.

I watched the movie "The Book Of Eli" and heard for the first time Al Green's cover of Bee Gees' "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" by the Bee Gees and it got stuck in my mind.


Love this one.

I remember watching gaming videos on YouTube where Scatman John and the infamously bad soundtrack to Sonic R were used as background music, and I got to like both because I heard them so often.


I'm definitely not normally a dance or synth pop kind of listener.

Good thread, music which will be forever associated with a piece. To set the scene, done in a future in which basically nature has died, and humans struggle to live on in a dead world. One of the characters goes in for euthanasia, sorry for the cruddy quality... frown.gif
