Music am I right?

Sometimes I wonder why I listen to so much music. It used to simply be out of an obligation I felt I had to fulfil; listen to as many albums as I can to make sure I look like I know my stuff, be a real music nerd! Maybe I'm looking for new ways to be creative and fire up my brain so I can finally do something I'm proud of.
