I realise this subject is about 5 years old, but I had my iPod Classic (which they no longer make!!!) nicked on Saturday night (among other things), and am resigning myself to the fact that I will have to do most of my music listening through streaming now. I signed up to Apple Music a while ago, on account of some of the radio shows, like the St Vincent one and Time Crisis, but I’m still getting used to having it as part of my daily routine.
I was just wondering what people noticed about their listening habits when they made a similar transition. Do you still listen to the same albums over and over again, or when faced with pretty much infinite choice, do you listen to a wider pool of music? I know this sounds slightly pretentious, but do you feel as connected to music if you don’t ‘own’ it, per se? I am interested to hear what changes you noticed, or haven’t for that matter.
Sorry if this topic has been done to death, but it just feels especially pertinent for me after this weekend.
