6. ...and you would never, ever listen to music as an ~activity~.

Walt Disney

It doesn't bother you when there's music playing in the background, but the thought of sitting down and listening to a whole album is very strange to you.

Columbia Pictures

You know that not committing to an answer makes you look desperately uncool, but there's nothing you can do about it.
