When we were growing up, parents would say, “Your music is too loud! Turn down that noise!” We said that when our kids played loud music, we’d understand.
Now my daughter says, “Your music is too loud!”
“It’s Baby Blue,” I say. “At least for the opening chords, you have to have it loud!” Same goes for Baba O’Riley—the opening is best when it’s loud.
She’s not impressed. With her earbuds, she gets the music pumped straight into her eardrums, and apparently that works for her. But I still like mine booming from stereo speakers, the old-fashioned way.
Luckily, I’m home by myself enough so that I don’t have to hear anybody say, “Turn down that noise!”
But I can’t wait to see how her kids listen to their music.
