Music is missing a very important characteristic, and that's presence.

When you're standing at the bus stop, you'll talk to the old lady waiting for the 86 about the weather, because it's there, or about the horrendous state of transport in your area, because it's immediate and common to you both. Unless there's a radio playing, you're not going to talk about music. If there is a radio playing, the best you can expect is "Turn that shit down."

In fact if you're standing at the bus stop listening to your MP3 player, having the earbuds/headphones on means "Do not disturb" to anyone who isn't socially maladjusted.
