I'm with you Harvey - the amount of ambient noise we are surrounded with - even without the background radio and music - is unbelievable. The other day at work the computers crashed and the silence was amazing. We have become used to a continual barrage of extraneous noise which people now believe is the norm. Perhaps sitting listening to silence for 4 minutes 33 seconds isn't such a daft idea after all.
