My brothers are the family members that play the most music. We can all play instruments, but they are the ones who just put the music on and leave it.
R started it. He had a collection of songs that he would play with his slideshow screen saver or his fireworks screensaver. So in my mind when I hear the 1812 overture I see fireworks or pictures of when he went overseas.
When we would go to P’s house and help him turn his living room into a movie theatre with surround sound. He would put on music and as we worked we would listen. Even when we were done for the day the music would continue.
And now B is doing it, it’s not super surprising his is the room with the speakers. Actually that is not true, the living room has speakers, but I hesitate to plug in my computer to use them.
I personally would play certain songs more often, but I am not the one playing the music. So if I want to hear the songs my other brothers gave me good memories of or anything else I have to use my own headphones.
