I commented to Oh the other day that when I first met him he seemed interested in music but over the years I have realised that he never listens to it...any kind.

He get this..........'I have grown out of it!'.....I was dumbfounded and at a loss as how to continue the conversation.......Grown out of it?.......How on earth does one 'Grow out of music?'


Suzanne Report 3 Jan 2013 22:48



guns and roses.


and im 49 :-D :-D


SueMaid Report 3 Jan 2013 22:50

My taste has changed over the years although I still have my old favourites. What hasn't changed is my love for music.


MrDaff Report 3 Jan 2013 22:51

I must admit to having recently stopped singing 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' .. does that count as 'grown out of it' ?? G/d has moved on to more 'grown up' music....

And I'm older than Suzanne :-D


RoseoftheShires Report 3 Jan 2013 22:52

I find some music run of the mill but as my Dad is a jazz drummer growing up I didnt have much of a choice but to listen too it I really couldnt be with out music.


Eeyore13 Report 3 Jan 2013 22:53

Have to admit I always had music on & haven't bothered for a couple of years. Not grown out of it...well I hope not I have quite a few CD's.


Kay???? Report 3 Jan 2013 22:58

supose you can grow out of wanting to listen to it when they all sound the same,,,,

its cause hes aged,,,,,,,matured........ :-D


Susan10146857 Report 3 Jan 2013 23:00

methinks I need to do a rethink as to his sanity

nah Kay...... maturing shouldn't spoil ones love of music.......I think it may have been one of those things he pretended to like. Just to impress the arts or anything really lol

I don't think I could ever grow out of music, Susan with numbers.

Listening to Take It From Here on the radio today, guess who was singing when my OH said she is described as having a giggle in her voice?



Bobtanian Report 3 Jan 2013 23:38

sad to say, but over the last fifteen or so years my hearing has gone down the pan,
in my early days i could listen to all kinds of music mostly classical.., and indeed in younger days,was a reasonable guitarist,
but nowadays unless I listen through headphones its just too loud for the rest of the household or even neighbours........sub titles on tv are a I dont bother......the radio these days is just a boring blur...........



LadyScozz Report 4 Jan 2013 00:21

nieces & nephews said I was "cool" because I've got Led Zeppelin LPs, Cds & DVDs........ until I pointed out how old LZ are!

Gawd I feel old :-D

I got an ipod for Christmas....... I know how to get the CD music on it, but I have to work out how to do the LPs :-( Can someone lend me a child please? :-D


maggiewinchester Report 4 Jan 2013 00:26

I no longer listen to music, I prefer stories.


Paula+ Report 4 Jan 2013 10:20

I have a very eclectic taste in music and choose what fits my “mood” at the time. I think ones taste can develop as one matures. I can remember getting into my car after my son had been driving and turned on the radio to my Classic fm station rather than the ear splitting music he usually played. It was the beginning of my boy growing up.

For us it is not that we have grown out of music, but we tend to listen to less music.

So on the radio it is often 'talk' shows, some with music thrown into the mix ie Radio London's Robert Elms & Jo Goode. Or Radio 4

And on the telly with all the channels now available there is often some really good history or similar types of programmes.

I still love much of the same music I did when younger (Rock, blues and some old Pop. But now only listen when in the car.

OH loves classical music and its still one of his joys now he is having health problems.

I often see him have a little sob when something he is listening too moves him .

The neurosurgeon has said listening to music is one of the best ways for him to relax and let his brain cells tick over.

I haven't grown out of music but I've grown out of the 'ear blasting' volume I used to have it on.


GlasgowLass Report 4 Jan 2013 11:36

I will never grow out of music.

What I think I have outgrown is.... live concerts.
I used to love them
My first gig was 1972 in Glasgow... Paul McCartney and Wings
Last concert was a few years ago.... Maroon 5.
They are so expensive.
I bought my daughters tickets 2 yrs ago for a concert in London.
They cost £150 each!

You don't need a child to convert your LPs... you need a USB turntable

Shirley I do so agree with you, music can be so therapeutic and healing. Research has shown that music has a profound effect on your body and psyche. In fact, there’s a growing field of health care known as music therapy, which uses music to heal.
