A few days ago, I was having a conversation with a friend about our tastes in music. He loves metal music as it helps him burn more calories when he's working out in the gym. Very understandable and a definite point of view, isn’t it?
In my case, I always tend to look for the inherent melodic pattern in the song I listen to. The reason I go after melody is I believe if its music there has to be some sort of a tune. If one cannot find that melody, then that song is probably not worth listening to. Even though the meaning of melody differs from person to person, we can still unanimously say that it is the backbone of any piece of music. According to me, melodic pattern in music is something that still appeals to the listener even when the song is played with just a pitch pipe or with minimal acoustic arrangement.
What do you look for when you listen to a song?
