It’s happened before but I wasn’t expecting it this time: a musical malaise has crept up on me. Normally I listen to a mixture of old music augmented by a steady stream of new songs. Right now I can’t be bothered with any of it.
There are always times when I feel a bit jaded with my musical tastes and stare at the records or CDs, unable to choose one. This time I also find myself flicking through itunes on shuffle without ever really settling on anything. None of it grabs me.
Worse, I haven’t bought or listened to anything new for months – since March in fact. Nor have I been to a single gig since before Christmas.
I would hate to do without music in my life. How do I cure this musical malaise?
