Are you a music Superfan? Stimulating Your Brain?

What does it mean to be a music-based Superfan? Would you consider yourself to be one of this dedicated breed? I would love to hear from you!

Prompted by a book review I read on the history of Deep Brain Stimulation, I wondered what constitutes a Superfan?

    For me a music superfan isn’t constrained by an era, i.e. not stuck in the time when they were in their teens or twenties so they are always looking out for something new. Neither are they restricted to a genre so they are exploring various styles of music. Above all it’s about being passionate about music and being prepared to pay for your music to reward the artists rather than expecting to get it for free while also wanting to hear it at it’s best by investing in a music playback system that is affordable for your budget. Going to concerts to hear bands playing music live goes without saying.

    Ah, I replied wihout watching the video. So, not a music superfan in it’s general interpretetion but a music artist superfan.
    While I follow many diverse artists such as Bell X1, XTC, Regina Spektor, Juana Molina, Briken Social Scene, LCD Soundsystem, Susanna Wallumrod, Brad Mehldau, Cassindra Wilson, Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams, Suzanne Vega, Stina Nordenstam and countless others my main focus is on Randy Newman.
    Not being the most prolific of artists led me into covers of his songs by other artists – so Dusty Springfield, Harry Nilsson, Ry Cooder, Chantal Kreviazuk, Julia Hulsmann trio & Anna Lauvergnac, Holly Cole, Roseanna Vitro and many others. Then there’s the soundtracks – “Cat’s don’t dance” anyone! and Awakenings, the Natural, Cold Turkey, Ragtime, Parenthood and the Pixar films which leads to the DVDs of said films.
    He’s touring the UK and Ireland next June so tickets have been bought for three gigs, I could go on but I know I’ve already stayed long after my welcome.

      Ahhh, well there you go Philip. There are Superfan elements in what you say, certainly. Although you could be classed more as a ‘completist’, which I have been re. many artists in the past. Bad on the wallet that 🙂
