I agree. As for noisy / chaotic music, I don't enjoy listening to hours of it on end, but some of it is decent. If the noise adds nothing to the song, or if the song simply consists of noise, I do not approve. However, songs which are enhanced by the noise they contain are perfectly fine by me.

EDIT: And I'm listening to "Helter Skelter," probably the loudest and most chaotic Beatles song ever. Good song. And we have reached eighteen pages. NICE

Music isn't meant to be architecture, it's meant to be art. You wouldn't want to support your house with Munch's Scream, just as you wouldn't want to spend time staring at a steel beam.

Think of watching a horror movie and at the big tense moment, when the murderer brandishing a length of barbed-wire for a garrotte is moments from lunging at the unsuspecting victim, the bozo next to you remembers a funny joke and starts laughing and snorting. If you're into the movie at all, you'd be pretty pissed off. It's the same with classical - you (or rather "I," since I'm just speaking for myself in this case) become so immersed in the music that a petty discraction really ticks you off.

And it also depends on how much you're into the music - when I've got Bach preludes playing in the background, I really don't care about other noise.

Speaking of Bach, his 15th prelude in G from Book 2 of the WTC is playing.

There is beauty in subtlety and delicacy of sound. I suppose there is in noise, too. *shrug* It's not for everyone. That lady, for instance, had been asleep at the time.

I've just listened to Handel's Messiah in its entirety. I find it interesting that %60 of the audience knew the appropriate moment to stand up (beginning of the Hallelujah chorus). The rest stood up from peer pressure.

Currently I'm not listening to anything, cos PCs don't have iTunes (they can get it, but don't have it). Maybe I'll steal the Mac back from my wee brother soon. When I come back from the toilet ;) .
(I'm supposing you don't actually care, though.)

Going through the Kenshin OST.
(Needless to say, I really don't care how songs influence people emotionally.)

MSW: Just list Wham! already.
I don't like Wham! very much. I only like one of their songs and I don't have it on my computer. I shudder to think about it right now as I am half awake. Wham! BAH!! Not right now.

I am not listening to anything right now, but I will be listening to an assortment of music today.

Hammerklavier! First Movement! Beethoven! Alfred Brendel performing! Two-hour delay at the somewhat perceived threat of a possibility of a chance of a snowflake or two! Yay!

Maija Vilkkumaa: "Ei saa surettaa". Currently perhaps the best rock singer in Finland. And the piece is simply one of the best I've ever heard, in any cathegory and on any scale.

EDIT: This is the second time I'm listening to it. Damn! It really is good. Have to buy it. My wallet cries blood.
