Question How Often Do You Listen To Music?

So on average how much time per day do you spend listening to music? Only count music that you choose to listen to, the radio playing in Walmart doesn't count.

EDIT: btw poll is anonymous so don't not vote if you're embarrassed to be a casual listener.

Easily over four hours. I have a two-hour (roughly) commute to work and listen to my mp3 player all the way.

Plus whatever listening I do when I get home, and some in the office too.

I feel like I'm listening to less and less each day out of lack of interest or lack of situations I feel appropriate.

Every possible moment. I have music on all the time. I play music when I'm in the shower, doing the dishes, doing various work around the house, walking or driving anywhere, and browsing online. It's a massive part of my daily life. If I'm around the house and not listening to music, I'm probably playing or writing it myself.

at werk is where i do most of my listening, be it some online stream or whatever band(s) i am about to see live.

at home, not so much.

in the car, is usually the least, but it depends. the commute to werk is like 10 minutes, so it makes no difference if there is silence or not. if it's a long drive, i am not opposed to silence, but there is usually something on.

I blast it on the drive to school
Listen to it on my Zune while walking to class
Blast it on the way home
Play it on my computer (unless I'm playing a game)

So definitely more than 4 hours

As often as possible. All drives. At work. At home during homework and reading. So I'd say 4+ on average.

Depends, on certain days, I really only can manage to listen to music for about an hour. On other days maybe 2 and a half sounds right. And there are days where I manage to listen to a LOT and LOT of music (days where I stay home and chill during the day, blastin' shit and then I go out at night, which means a train commute ). In fact those three types of days pretty much make up my entire listening habits in equal divisions (in the school year, when schools out I have a lot more of the latter type days, or other cause I often work with music on).

edit: Voted 2-4, 'cause I figure 3 hours is about average.

I almost always have music playing in the background when I'm home, and when I'm driving or walking anywhere it's always playing.

So, definitely over four hours.
