Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?

popMalam ini saya menonton film High Fidelity (2000) lagi. Film yang diadaptasi dari buku karangan Nick Hornby ini bercerita tentang pemilik toko vinyl, Rob (John Cusack) berurusan dengan divisi ‘romantic relationship‘-nya.

Banyak kalimat bagus yang ada di film sarat dengan unsur musik ini, tapi sekarang saya sedang sangat suka dengan deretan kalimat pembuka film ini karena sangat sangat berkorelasi dengan kondisi sekarang ;)

What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?
