"...what came first, the music or the misery? Did I listen to music because I was miserable or was I miserable because I listened to music? Do all those records turn you into a melancholic person?

People worry about kids playing with guns and teenagers watching violent videos; we are scared that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands – literally thousands- of songs about broken hearts and rejection and pain and misery and loss.

The unhappiest people I know, romantically speaking, are the ones who like pop music the most; and I don’t know whether pop music has caused this unhappiness, but I do know that they’ve been listening to the sad songs longer than they’ve been living the unhappy lives…"
Extracto de High Fidelity, Nick Hornby

¿estoy triste porque escucho música pop o escucho música pop porque estoy triste?
¿que entró antes en mi vida, la melancolía o la música?
lo único que sé es que todos mis estados de ánimos están reflejados en canciones...cuando estoy triste me pongo un disco...antes de salir de marcha me pongo otro...y cuando llego a casa y necesito desconectar de lo que he visto o me rodea me pongo otro.

escuchando en estos momentos "cosas que dejó el verano" de Clyde
