Background Music

To me there is no such thing. If I can hear it, it is foreground music. I have to pay attention to it.

I can’t write, edit, or grade if I’m hearing music, because I lose the requisite concentration. I can’t even cook, or clean dishes, and I have the burns and cuts to prove it.

Wow. I thought I was the only one who couldn’t listen to music while working. Drives me nuts that my husband can work on a grant while playing music much of the time. I cannot stand the foreground music. The only time I listen to music is while I am driving. That, I can do.
