Whenever we want to feel fully relaxed and enjoy the quietness of the day, we make that soft music to float in the air, it is so soothing. Whenever we feel the need to be perked up in an otherwise drab and lifeless day, we play that music which moves the soul and makes our bodies get a jumpstart. How many among us here is making use of music to enhance our moods and the way we deal with life? Please share.

I really do enjoy certain music like jazz or slow r&b for relaxation.Then some of my favorite hiphop songs makes me happy when I am feeling down.

music is really one of the best gift of nature to humankind. the chirping of the birds and the hustling of the leaves can get us fully relaxed and at times perk us up. now that mankind has made so much more of it, music is even enjoyed by us at the comfort of our own homes.

I do, In fact, while I was writing my response to your topic, I am listening to Whitney Houston of her "I WANNA RUN TO YOU" song. I never forget to turn on my music, everytime I work with something else. Music is my soul.

Count me in! I love listening to music. It eases my soul, it goes with my mood and it lightens my burdens. Whenever I don't feel so good, I just listen to the music and wallah! I'm alright again. Also, music binds me with my friends for we all love it and we share the same music. We have the same tastes, it makes our friendship/bonding more exciting :). I don't think there's anyone who hates music :)

music can really do wonders. it makes us happy yet, it can also make us remember sad memories. it is curious though that it always makes us feel much better. also, it enlivens an otherwise drab gathering. just observe how an otherwise lifeless party comes to life with the introduction of music.

i know that music can rock us to a deep sleep. just our mothers used to do singing or humming us to sleep while we were still small kids.

i am not much inlove with music. unlike some of my friends who are addicted with ipods and all, i can live a day without hearing any of my favorite song. however, i admit that there's much of a difference whenever i hear music which suits my mood for the day. it perks up my mood and even there are times when music can turn my frowns into smiles. definitely, music can add some spice in my life. i guess i will listen to music more and more each day from now on. hehe.

I am totally "dependent" of music. It helps me a lot to relax or to boost my mood during the day. I am listening as much as I can.

I like to listen to music and I listen to various types. But I especially turn up the volume when I'm tired.
