With summer in full swing, I seem to be continuously confronted by the invasive thump, thump boom, boom of house music. I decided to avoid nightclubs years ago but now it would seem that pubs and outdoor recreational areas believe this is the best medium to draw in the crowds. Even in what had previously been relaxing restaurants this seems to be the music of preference. Am I missing something? Does anyone over 30 have an appreciation for this style of music? Or break it to me gently - I am just old.
