Music doesn't have to always be intellectual works
Music can just be for dancing
Or just for atmosphere
Or just for fun

Like many forms of "entertainment", there are music genres/artists/songs who perpetuate the ability to disconnect from thinking. Alternatively, you have music out there with depths that speak to the human experience in ways that only the listener can comprehend. But most likely, you're at a gym, and the music is selected based on a BPM model to increase your heartrate, and it appears to have worked beyond just the gym :)

I discover connection everywhere;

Turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within me;

Opening to my loss and pain and ignorance,
I remember who I am and what I'm here for.

Surrendering into emptiness,
I find fullness without end.

Each condition I flee from pursues me,
Each condition I welcome transforms me

and becomes itself transformed
into the blessing it always was.

Fine, but I made a point about what is inane, which seems to be relative to individual taste.

People think what is good depends on what they like, but it doesn't. Aesthetics are intrinsically connected to virtue, and the great misinterpretation is subjectivity being relative to personal subjects who discern merit as their pleasures, and where that fallacy predominates, all expression is disingenuous.

Aesthetics are only a part of music; pleasure is only one benefit of listening to music. Being objective about the merits of music is subject to perceptions. The meaning of music can be personal or cultural.
