Because you need a brain to listen to it, a normal guy would find it "boring" since they cant apreciatte the complexity and prefer simple tunes with simple beats that are easy to dance.
What, leaving the brain comment outside, what I wrote is completly true.
Alright, brain comment aside... I don't think liking/disliking classical music has anything to do with appreciation. It simply comes down to liking what you hear. That's what's important.
I enjoy all genres of music. On my ipod I have rap, metal, blues, classical, jazz, etc. No discrimination here. Hell, I even have a Madonna tune on my ipod (I'm not gay... I'M NOT!!!) Also, I'm a musician whose been playing music ever since I was a child. Not once has intricacy of a musical piece made me enjoy a tune. Impressed? Perhaps... but enjoyed more because of complexity? Don't see how that makes sense from a practical standpoint. People listen to music because they like what they hear...
Have you ever thought that perhaps people don't like classical music because they don't like conventional instruments? Or that perhaps the sound just doesn't flow with them? I don't think we need to regard these people as simpletons for not liking what we like. That's just... snobbish...
And not true.
Ok, I agree you can dislike it, what I meant is that most poeple that dont know about music/ have ear to sing/ play instruments/ havent listened to a wide variety of music(which are the mayority of people) dont get classical music because, even if its easy listening, its hard to apreciate it, meaning they would rather listen to the jonas brothers and enjoy the simpleness of the songs, in everyway.
When you get exposed to more complicated music you can see how simple the other one is, and you get bored with very shitty guitars, shitty vocal ranges, shitty drums, shitty message, etc... unless its on purpose.
Most people say metal is just noise for example, and you as a mussician should know its a lot more than that, and I admit it even if metal is not my genre of choice. Some say classical music/Queen/Led Zeppelin is old guy stuff, and shit like that, which is a valid point but doesnt have to do with the music and shows ignorance in the subject.
What my first post refered to is that most people are limited to Lady Gaga as the best they have listened, Jonas Brothers as rock, etc... and these people who dont have a clue about music(not saying they are stupid generally) cant appreciatte classical music.
