Many people, especially in the United States, listen to music on a daily basis. Whether it be listening to the radio or popping in a CD, music is a static force behind the daily lives of Americans. If this was not the case, then there is no way that iPod and other MP3 players would currently be selling so well. Before, music was simply about convenience: having our music to-go was the key factor and ever-evolving technology rise to met that need. From Walkman cassette players, to portable CD players, to iPods that can hold movies as well as music, the possible ways to be entertained on-the-go are numerous. Currently, there are MP3 players on the market that have more memory than the average computer system does! While all of these are wonderful technologies, there is still little that can be enjoyed more than front-row tickets at a concert to hear your favorite band play. Sure, listening to music through headphones is great, but hearing it live is even better. No matter what the occassion, Americans have an intense attachment to music that seems as if it will perservere through just about anything.
