lets talk about music

Music has the power to cause emotions to well up within us. These feelings are gripping - often irresistible - and seem to emerge from nowhere. These feelings colour our moods, affect our perceptions and generate a behavioural pattern. The indisputable fact about music is its power to evoke emotions. Is there anyone, for whom, music is completely emotional - neutral? Music has the ability to inevitably tap the still, mysterious deep well of our emotions.However, music can produce various emotional responses in different individuals and even different responses in the same person at different times. Music may produce expressions of various emotions - peaceful, relaxing, exciting, festive, boring, unsettling, unstimulating, invigorating ... and so on. Music is an extremely versatile medium of communication. It is capable of exploring all the features that are used in verbal communication. Moreover, it does so in an explicit and structured way, which makes it an interesting and useful window into human communication, in general.The repetition of a line as in a lullaby, the regular beating of a drum - they produce a feeling of physical ease and lull the child to sleep. The rhythmic sound of the train, of waves breaking on the shore, the song of a cricket at night - why, even the electric fan is able to produce a soothing physical quiet. But good music does not stop there. It touches our emotions. True music really far deeper and touches our very soul and leaves its imprint on us. It may not be possible to explain or describe this reaction in ordinary language. It can only be felt. It is one of those mystic experiences, which baffle analytical explanation.

Music is the language of the soul. It fills the world with love, peace and happiness. I am more into love songs. I have few favorites that I can very much relate to. Its messages are speaking about how I truly feels. I listen to music almost every night before I go to sleep. It calms me. It stops my mind from hopping from one thinking to the other. Others make music their bread and butter. Involving themselves in creating or singing it. Some even made it a success as a career. Others make it as an everyday aprt of their lives. It fills their rooms, their homes, and almost everywhere they go. Gadgets tranmitting music is so much in demand nowadays. In fact, most of my friends have ipods or mp4. Taht's how popular and the role music plays in our world.
