There are basically two types of humans.
The sort that, upon hearing a song they love, will play it again. And again. And maybe even, um, one more time.
They'll listen for changes in tempo or nuances in background vocals.
They'll challenge themselves to master the lyrics without the aid of an Internet search...well, until they hit that one line they just can't crack, anyway.
The really musically inclined of the bunch will play the main melody or refrain by ear on a piano or guitar or harmonica or ukulele; whichever is their preferred instrument.
They'll sing it at the tops of their lungs, even when they aren't positive of all the words. And once they are, look out, dude because you are in for a concert of one whether you paid for the ticket or not, Capisce?
Finally, once they feel satisfied that they've gotten this song down, they'll play it one last time, dancing around and singing; grinning on the inside and out. Or, if the song touches them meaningfully yet in a way that evokes sadness, sympathy, or an internal philosophical debate; they will weep.
Then, they'll search for another new tune by the same artist and start the process all over again. BT Dubs, they will skip songs that don't hit them in the feels one way or another.
Homosapien type #2 will, upon hearing a song they like a lot, bob their heads as it plays then move onto the next song. If they don't particularly care for it, they'll just wait it out until it's over in anticipation of the following ditty.
They will not only NOT understand why the type #1s behave this way but will also be moderately [if not profoundly] irritated by the entire practice -- not to mention by the type #2s themselves.
Ironically, type #1s are often married to type #2s---which makes for interesting road trips, you dig?
Now, I'm not going to tell you which one PK is but I do have to scoot because there's this one verse in "Who Do You Love?" by the Chain Smokers/5 Seconds of Summer that I just can't quite catch.
Besides, Kerry will kill me if I play it on repeat for the entire three-hours in the car the next time we head to Buffalo, so...
