Math in Music? Who Cares!

I hear it all the time, "There's math in music." That doesn't mean I have to like it.There’s math in music, and I still don’t like it.

Music, I mean. I don’t like music.

Okay, yes. I listen to old 80s pop tunes and Weird Al Yankovic.

But I like it because of the lyrics.

I like fun lyrics. I like catchy lyrics. But I don’t like music just for music’s sake.

I would rather have my feet cut off and fed to a shaved llama than ever have to listen to classical music.

Except for Tchaikovsky, I’m all about listening to to Tchaikovsky. For some reason.

But there’s math in music!

I hear it all the time. People ask me if I like music. I tell them I don’t.

They respond, “But there’s math in music! I thought surely you’d love it!”

Yeah, well, there’s math in everything. I’m not kidding. Everything.

There’s math in haunted houses, magic and really mean people. But I don’t like those things either.

Just because there’s math in it doesn’t mean I have to like it. In fact if I liked everything that had had math in it, I would like… well… everything.

I don’t like everything.

I don’t like haunted houses, magic, or mean people.

And I don’t like music.

Thanks for asking.


P.S. I really like “It’s A Small World” – and I found a cool way to “watch” it on
