Could this mean that we may have to delete some of the music from our not-so-regularly-heard collection? It is a painful heartbreaking process, I know. This article by The Minimalists might help.

The reason we love live gigs and concerts is because of the constraint induced by time. We love tight deadlines and that's a reason we love football games, quarterly reviews, and SMART goals in organizations. Deadlines are a creative constraint and they induce a sense of meaning to things we do. Without a compressed time scale, we might lose the thread of the whole story as it becomes tough to stay motivated for long.
Existentially, boredom as a result of introducing constraints is probably the most promising gateway to happiness. It's an antidote to the ever distracting digital life we are living nowadays. From my personal experience, I can vouch for this fact since the most resourceful/liberating period in my life was when I took a break from full-time work and moved to the US and spent 4 years of my time working as a pro bono consultant and blogger. There were several constraints in my life at that point - visa limitations, vehicle, and money.
This counter intuitive idea could be one of the reasons we miss our childhoods and we tend to get nostalgic about it. Childhood is a time when a person experiences the most number of constraints since we had to seek permission from the adults.

And, that is the true cure to existential emptiness.
