First Listen

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?
