'Music is silence asleep'

I suppose I'm a bit like Horatio Hornblower - no I am not tone deaf, but I don't like listening to music.
And, even though I live alone and can go days without speaking to anyone, I hate background sounds like a TV or radio.
Most people will probably regard this as odd.
Yet I live in a house with a metal frame and metal roof which creaks, cracks and bangs regularly as the metal expands and contracts - and I don't notice it.
I guess the old seafarers didn't hear the creaks and growns of a timber ship.
For me the words, 'Music is silence asleep', qualify my feelings.
