I used to love listening to music, but I listen to very little anymore. Sometimes it stirs up my emotions too much, sometimes I can't relate to it at all. But my husband likes country and I don't mind hearing that.

It's hard to keep up with all the new music, especially since iTunes came around. Still, I try to listen to new music because I've noticed that many people I know who seem to be "old" only listen to oldies music. It's another way for to rebel against aging. Living with someone who loves music and is always finding something new to listen to helps a lot.

I am similar, I just don't seem to have the time listening to new music, even if it is my favourite artists releasing new music, I may manage to listen once or twice only.

I only started paying attention to pop music again in November or so, so the only new albums I've heard are Prism by Katy Perry, Beyonce by Beyonce and Artpop by Lady Gaga.

Actually, those are three albums that I was surprised not to see on any top 20 lists.

I chose none in the country part, because I don't care about country music post-1970s (Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Emmylou Harris excepted).
