  1. I will add my own imho to the already available answers:
    I may not hear some important details in the music and lyrics the first time if, for example, I heard a song from a bad source – on the radio in the car, while the characters of the TV series droned on, I didn't use headphones from a bad computer speaker, or I might just be lost in my own thoughts and not notice that the song was great.
    Then it happens that you don't like the song without context. In a particular movie, it can fit perfectly and now I will mentally imagine that beautiful moment, or I will like the song more/a new meaning will open up when I see its name in the text of the book. And again, just important moments in a person's life, in which this song sounded somewhere nearby.
    Also, I may only like a certain part of the song and listen to it all for its sake, and maybe get used to the whole song.

    I hope the answer was helpful.

  2. I think it's because you don't understand the coolness of the song the first time. Although I personally like to listen to songs that I can sing along to. I mean, I've listened to them many times and learned them.

  3. When listening to various musical compositions, people tend to associate the text/words contained in them with some situations from their own life. Sooner or later, the brain will remember “the very” life experience that correlates with the filling of this very song and, accordingly, you will start to like it.

    As an example: people from places not so far away can enthusiastically listen to the repertoire of Mikhail Krug, and 13-year-old girls who have recently started to like boys, having learned the first insults/first breakup, will tearfully re-listen every evening to another hit about broken love from the conditional Nyusha (which adults, due to their maturity and already different perception of the world, will consider pop verbal nonsense written on their knees in 5 minutes. …True, for girls “older”, the world gave birth to Stas Mikhailov).

    As for music completely without words, everything is also natural here. A person's mood may well change hourly, this is how the brain works. Have you been depressed for a week, lying around at home, and the neighbor behind the wall drove cheerful club tracks through the speakers every day? It's unlikely to come in. But as soon as you get out of this state, you may well start to like it.

    The compositions have different moods, and the person also has many different moods. At some point, these two moods will converge — either immediately, or later.
