What someone needs to make is a game -- and I use the term loosely -- designed to be played while listening to music. Not as in, say, Rock Band, where you are following the song, but rather something like dance or painting that happens in reaction to whatever you are hearing. Because after all I can't dance to everything, and MS Paint only goes so far for a hack like me.

As it is I often play Minesweeper while listening to music; I find it keeps some part of my brain just-engaged enough to allow me to focus on the music; this is particularly crucial for long classical pieces, or when I want to listen to an entire album, since otherwise I become easily distracted. But how much better if instead I had something to further my engagement with the music, to maintain & expand my attention & appreciation. Customizeable visualization, expressive movement, whatever you like. But sometimes I am listening to music and I want to react somehow, while still remaining inside of it; without shifting my entire attention away to write or what-have-you.
