How to “Like” a Song and Appreciate Music Better

1. Understand What the Song is Trying to Convey. If you find it hard to understand the meaning of a particular song, listen to it repeatedly to further appreciate it. Maybe you will not like a song the first time you hear it, but when you listen to it repeatedly, you will be surprised because you might really enjoy it. Many songs have hidden messages that the artist wants you to find.
“Life can't be all bad when for ten dollars you can buy all the Beethoven sonatas and listen to them for ten years.” --William F. Buckley, Jr.

2. Be Open-Minded. Don't be afraid to listen to any music genre. Everyone’s music taste differs from each other. What sounds good to you may not sound good to other person. It doesn’t necessarily mean that when one of your friends doesn’t like a particular singer, you will unlike that singer, too.

"Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons. You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body."  --Oliver Wendell Holmes

3. Don't dismiss the Oldies. Some of the great songs from the past also sounds good. In fact, some of the songs from the past seems like they’re not getting old either, the all time favorite, like the songs of “The Beatles”.

“We listen to great music and know that all our joys and sorrows are part of something beyond our comprehension - and so indefinitely valuable.” --Jesse O'Neill
