Why is it that when we first listen to a song,
we can completely hate it, but then, after a
second listen, we can end up loving it entirely?
Is it simply our mood at the moment that
determines our initial like or dislike?
Unlike with a book or a movie, most of us
hear a song before knowing the title or
artist, so it is difficult for there to be
something other then the song itself to
leave us with any first impressions.
Is it that maybe the second time around
we actually happened to be listening, that
the first time we were either intentionally
or subconsciously blocking out the
music? So what does it mean when we
happen to love the song the first time?
