4. I dont really think so. I remember when i went to concert i saw many people at my aged. Some of them are younger or older than me. And what i see nowadays music idols have fans from young to old fans.

Yes, music is one of my favourite pastimes.

I listen to different genres of music , western classical , indian classical and film music ,rock.

As I grew up , my music taste has also changed a lot. I used to listen to simple tunes earlier and now I love more complex and subtle music.

Definitely, different generations prefer different types of music. I think people prefer music they can relate to and have grown up with.

LOVE music and always have. Mostly rock and roll, although i like and respect many different types of music.

I think about "older vs. younger" quite a bit as it relates to music. It's a very interesting topic, obviously younger people are more into what is popular at the time, which can often be disposable and mediocre. then again, I still follow and enjoy a lot of the songs/albums/bands that I liked when I was young. I know a # of "older" people who think everything released in the last decade or two sucks. It's a silly attitude to have.

So I'm not sure that my listening tastes have changed all that much. This is largely due to being open-minded. Being a big rock fan i do feel like the mainstream music scene has shifted away from the type of music I like the most, but I'm still always on the lookout for quality new songs and bands.

yeah, i am really into pop music, especially when i want to study, it increase my concentration, my mom always say to me how you could study with musics, dont they disturbe your concentration!?

well, it certainly depends on my mood, when i feel unhappy, i play a dance CD and dancing boost my mood! when i come bach home after a boring day, listening to pop music make me relax, or after a stressful day, a tradition music cheer me up and gives me a sense of accomplishment

3. Has the music that you listen to changed since you were young?

surely, when i was under 18, i had limited myself to tradition and pop musics but when i went to university my views changed about diffrent muscis and i currently listen to r & b, metal, hip hop melodies.

4. Do you think older and younger generations prefer different types of music?

i want to give my grandfather answer to you, when i always want to turn up muscics vloume he says me, i'm so old to listen metal music, but if you play a pop music CD, i give you permission to increase volume

I like many different types of music. I prefer old Arabic music very much also I used to listen to some English songs when i was younger.

No, I think not because now i am not interesting to listen new types of music.
