Yeah, I agree. I don't understand why you'd want to compromise both your reading and your listening, unless you happen to have a great capacity for fully absorbing both simultaneously, which is unlikely.

Dude, I've done it since elementary school....and it hasnt hindered my grades yet.....In fact, all last year, I couldnt write any of my thesis papers without some form of music going on in my room. Some people need complete silence, I dont. Its not like I am listening to the lyrics or the music in depth. Its just that white noise in the background...its soothing to me. And it keeps me awake.

I could understand reading to classical music, but otherwise I can't do it, too distracting.

It's called playing albums you've heard a million times and don't need to sit there and dissect. Besides, I don't give a fuck about Flags of Our Fathers and couldn't care less if I'm compromising my understanding of it.

The first time I ever listened to Master of Puppets, I was reading Skeleton Crew by Stephen King, and to this day I can't hear "The Thing That Should Not Be" without imagining scenes from King's story "The Mist."

In this case, I think the song made the story better and the story made the song better.

But in general, I agree it's pretty difficult to listen to music with words while also trying to read. And even more impossible to try to write while listening to music with words.
