This is all to say that this felt a lot like scoring a bag and waiting impatiently for the weekend so you can enjoy it. They must be right that drugs hijack the reward system, because music over the last few years has definitely become a sort of drug for me.
Can't wait for the end of the day so I can put on an album or two as well. In any event it's a lot cheaper than drugs and feels just as good.
Nothing profound, just an observation.
