Well, you have exactly the same problem as me!! I also can't have a conversation in a pub or anything where lots of people are speaking at the same time. My friend told me it was a consequence of a strong sense of curiosity: I just cannot cut myself from the ambient noise because there may somewhen be something interesting to pick up from there. And it's all unconscious of course ;)) . But with me it's often the words that win over the music, which makes it difficult to remember a tune :((( . Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
