I can't listen to music for enjoyment - I immediately start to analyze it, dissect it, wonder how it would sound as a country song or as a black metal song etc. I've been this way for over a year now so I don't think it's just a passing phase. Is anybody else like this? I'm just curious, really. Aside from leaving more free time for playing, this has a major financial upside. I've cashed in pretty good selling off most of my music collection - a lot of the more obscure stuff had gone out of print and up in value in the meantime. Considering I had acquired almost all of it by trading my own recordings this is basically indirect profit from my various bands which is great. I'm only keeping stuff that I have on CD that I might want to cover someday.
