Coffee and music are two things that bring us joy and comfort in different ways. Coffee is a beverage that gives us a quick burst of energy and pleasure before it is consumed and gone. Music, on the other hand, has the ability to linger with us forever, providing us with emotional and psychological comfort for years to come.
The longevity of music is incomparable to that of coffee, as music can last forever and be enjoyed anytime by anyone. Music can transcend time, generations, and cultures, and its value only increases as it ages. A classic song or album can be enjoyed and appreciated by people of all ages and backgrounds, allowing people to connect and share moments with each other.
On the other hand, once consumed, coffee is gone forever. A cup of coffee might give us a temporary boost of energy and pleasure, but it will not provide us with a lasting experience. The expenses of coffee also add up, with the average price of a cup of coffee being around £2.50 (2022). On the other hand, music singles can be bought for just 0.99 pence, making it a more cost-effective and long-lasting form of pleasure.
Although the rise of streaming services has made it easier to access music without having to physically buy it, purchasing music still holds significant value. Owning a physical copy of an album or single provides a sense of ownership and connection to the music. It adds a level of sentimentality that cannot be achieved through streaming, which can be seen as a temporary form of access to music.
In conclusion, coffee and music provide us with different forms of pleasure, but the longevity of music compared to coffee is incomparable. A cup of coffee might give us a temporary boost, but it is gone as soon as it was consumed. Music, on the other hand, can be enjoyed forever and connects people of all ages and backgrounds. Therefore, investing in music can give us long-lasting pleasure and value that is worth much more than a cup of coffee.
It also benefits the artist more if you purchase rather than stream.
