I am also in my early 30s and I used to be the same way - buying CDs as soon as they came out, etc. That has definitely tapered off for me. I occasionally realize as I walk down the aisle at the grocery store that I am humming along to the Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young song that is playing!!!Originally Posted by onei0091;3206283;
My iPod is full of stuff that generally falls into 3 categories:
(1) Stuff I grew up listening to because my parents liked it, but I probably wouldn't generally admit to liking!!
(2) Stuff from CDs that I picked up thru my high school & college years.
(3) More recent discoveries are typically singles that I buy online. I have Sirius radio in my car and I find that I "discover" a lot of new music that way - I look up the artist on iTunes and just download whatever tracks I like.
My kids are 4-15 yo so thru them I get a sampling of everything from the latest hip-hop to the latest Hannah Montana. Sadly I can probably sing along with the majority of Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus songs - but not out of choice - I think that Disney pop stuff just soaks into you, like osmosis!
