Speaker A: I love going to outdoor concerts, especially during the summer months, in the evening, just before the sun’s gone down and the temperature starts to cool a bit. It’s a great way to relax, listen to music and enjoy yourself. You can even dance and move around a bit if you like. If you’re lucky, you’ll find a nice patch of grass where you can sit down for a while and sip on some refreshing drinks with friends. Who wouldn’t like that?
Speaker В: I’m a huge fan of the digital music revolution. I love being able to download any song I want and listen to it on a device that fits in my pocket. There’s no end to what kind of music you can get in this format, because it seems like nearly every tune ever made has been put into this computerised form. I also like the fact that you can buy just one song, and not an entire album. That’s less expensive, in my opinion.
Speaker С: I think music’s changed quite a lot since my parents’ day. Nowadays, I think there’s a lot of electronic instruments in use, and that’s kind of disappointing. I’ve listened to a few of my mum’s old records, and I like the real guitars and drums without the electronic sound. I like the real voices too, not ones that have been changed digitally. I think there’s quite a lot of real music out there these days, but there’s also lots of competition from pop bands and so on.
Speaker D: I’ve been playing in a band for a couple of years now. I can’t say I’m ready to quit my job to become a full-time musician, but I think my band mates and I have got a good thing going on. We’ve almost got enough music to put an album together, and then we’re going to try and save up enough money to record it. It’s expensive, being a musician, but if we make it big, money won’t be a problem any more.
Speaker E: I think record shops will become a thing of the past. I realise it’s much more convenient to buy digital music, and I’m not against that. But I miss hanging out in a record shop, looking at all the album covers, running into people you know who love music also. It was a social thing. Sure, there are still some record shops around, but I imagine they’re having a tough time. I feel sorry for them!
