How do you listen to music?

It seems people have great varying listening styles, spanning from just sitting back, closing your eyes and going into your own world to imagining seeing that said band live. Some people listen and pretend their playing the instruments (Air Guitar), and some people just head band till they're nose starts to profusely gush out blood.

So whats your listening style?

I seem to go from head-bobbing, to air guitar, to pounding on random shit with my hands.

Well, first I put a song on.

The sound waves then go into my ear, which are a signal of nerve impulses sent to my brain.

Haha, yeah I generally just chill and listen to music, although sometimes I'll just lie down and listen to it with my eyes closed in bed or something because I find I hear little things that I might not hear normally when I listen to it, which is always pretty awesome.

I do just about the same thing. I often pretend I know to play drums and guitar. It makes me feel good.

While riding my bike to school (45 min ride), I usually really get into the music. I often listen to music at a pretty high volume while riding.

At home, I'm usually doing other things while listening to music, so I'm less concentrated on listening.

Also, I tend to not listen to really long songs at home, saving them for long bike rides. Just sort of pays off more. :P

if i'm just chilling postin' on the net i just use my speaker set-up with subwoofer, either listening to stuff i'm familiar with or a playlist on random but if I got a new album I really want to draw myself into I pull out my $300 headphones and go sit on the back step with my ipod. i walk to work and back each day, I use cheap earbuds when I do this (noise cancelling headphones irritate like all hell when there are vibrations) and usually i'll break the ice with a couple of albums i haven't listened to which have been sitting on my hard drive for a while

I didn't realize head banding was such a risky business.

I listen with my ears.

Yeah so do I, lol, but the point is do you actually do anything while listening? Or just sit their like a lifeless hobo? And actually if you headbang hard enough you can badly damage your brain.
