3 When The Music Bites/You Move

It is has become the norm, customary even to see people with ipods and MP3’s in their ear every morning on the train, bus and streetcars to and from work. Some people give nothing away as they are calm and show no outward signs that they are listening to music others on the other hand are very animated bopping their heads, lip synching to the music or moving their shoulders to the beat. Friday morning however was exceptionally different as this particular passenger could barely contain himself as he seem to go into some sort of contorted fit of movement, facial expressions, and lip synching when the music melody and lyrics hit him. He was shaking his left and right hand while simultaneously lifting his left leg and lip synching with an angry snare and eye brows pulled together. Sometimes he would open his eyes largely pump his left fist in an upward movement and purse his lips while working his neck in a back and forth bobbing motion. It was quite reverting to watch at some points I thought he was going to pass out from the intensity of his facial expressions and his agitated foot and hand movements. The woman sitting beside him became uneasy as she kept watching him from the sides of her eyes. At one point just before he left the train he turned to the glass area when the train stopped in the tunnel and watched himself lip synching his face contorting from snare to bulging eyes to satisfied smirk and I thought ‘wow ok then, he must really love that music because was behaving like it was biting him and he could not help but move to the beat’.
