    The composer Richard Wagner was asked a similar question, many years ago.  His response (clearly, in German) was : "The function of music is to speak the unspeakable."  If you prefer porn to all of music - good luck, fella.

    I feel its to evoke emotions and inspire. But it don't end up like the latter when your life is meaningless as a whole which gets disappointing. U don't want to just enjoy....

    If you feel that way, and are reasonably sensible, then you won't “waste time” listening to music.

    Obviously though, for the huge majority of humanity, it's not a waste of time.

    To learn how to play music so that you can then play it for girls (who get turned on by guy musicians much more than they get turned on by porn) and get laid instead of always pathetically pounding your own pud just looking at porn on the Internet alone in your room.
