What music did you listen to five years ago? Ten years ago? What kind of movies did you like? Your favorite food? It has changed a bit, even if subtly, hasn’t it? Sometimes… you just stop liking things. It just sort of happens, given enough time and new experiences. And it’s always a bit sad when it does. On the flip side, it usually comes paired with a newfound interest in something else!
I used to listen to soundtracks. A lot. And it was great while it lasted, but nowadays (read: these past years) my music listening times are a lot more passive (mostly during commute), so I can deal with more “distracting” music. My taste has grown to reflect that, and it’s been a really great experience. There’s so much out there to hear if you’re open to it, it’s insane!
If a cool soundtrack crosses my path, I’ll definitely pick it up, but I’ve moved away from hoarding-esque practices. Shame I no longer feel that great about soundtracks in general, but I guess that’s also partly about developing a more refined taste.
What I still have around remains great for nostalgia, if anything.
