As the process of consuming music continues to evolve, many complain that the changes have cheapened the artform. But this year’s Nielsen’s Music 360 report on music consumption suggests that listening to music is still the most popular form of entertainment in the U.S. The study found that 93 percent of Americans listen to music, slightly more choose to listen to music over watching TV on a daily basis and most people still listen via radio (terrestrial and online). The survey also revealed that the most popular place to listen to music is in cars (where TV viewing and gaming are still slightly difficult), followed by at work, while doing chores and in the background of arguments between the voices in your head (probably).
