AI: Seasonal Music Disorder
There’s this thing that I do with music. As the seasons change, so do my listening habits. For instance, as the Autumn rolls around, my play lists tend to be comprised more of the records I listened to as a teenager; In Utero by Nirvana, Where You Been? by Dinosaur jr, Last Splash by The Breeders, Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star by Sonic Youth… Also, there are some albums or songs that I listen to only at night (Like Swimming by Morphine) or only during the day (anything by They Might Be Giants). I have some hypotheses, but really, I have no idea why this is.
Do you have similar ‘seasonal’ or ‘daytime/nightime’ tastes? Is it a mood thing? Are you aware of any research that addresses this phenomenon? Is this even a phenomenon, or is it just me?
