I really like to listen to music of different genres as it makes me relax along side from other various reasons music uplift the soul and they also teaches about life with its meaningful lyrics and wonderful sounds. I am listening to music at home most of the times for economical reasons. One does not need to spend any cash, unless your a music band fan then listening at home is not enough and one have to spend cash by visiting music venues where the famous band of your favorite singers are holding their concerts. You could appreciate more the live music band, since the performers sing your favorites song live. They are more exciting to watch and gives a unforgettable experiences. The disadvantages the music you listen at home is limited and quite lead to boredom listening to the same music over and over again, unlike when you go outside you have variety of song to choice. How about you, Where do enjoy most listening to music at home or to the other musical venues? what would you choose? thanks 1-14-10

at home they are more convenient as i own the place and i could do whatever i want. while in other venues i could see my favorites band but only hard to the wallet as the pay price sometimes is too high that is why i prefer for the meantime to listen to my ipod.

hi amyson, yup, that right as you own the place so nobody would get annoy whatever types of music which you like to play and listen. when it comes to listening music outside your home they are not free and you have to pay for it.

of course, listening to music at home is free and i could make the volume of my player more louder and enjoy best as i am at the privacy of my home. while in the outside venues i would be happy with friends around while enjoying the live show. both have good and bad side effects.

hi fantasticbabe, yup, that the nice things about home anything you do could do so as long as the volume of your player is not too loud the music would be good to listen and not as a noise which could damage an ear drum. while in the outside music listening as you already mention they are of entirely different experience.

Hiya neelianoscet...I listen to most music all across the genres board..all but opera, that is. Music has always tamed my restless soul be it anger, sorrow, pain, joy....I could be firing off an anger email to someone and a song will suddenly pop up (random playback of my playlist in youtube) and it will instantly diminish that anger or I could be hurting from a friend's hate-filled words and another song will come on to sooth my crying soul..I also have some of my friends' music downloaded onto my computer where it stays and they also help sooth me when I'm in a depressed condition. I take cds with me in my car to listen to some of my music on the road being we don't have a decent classic rock station that is dependable.

hi blackbriar, Somehow song really have influence in the mind of any listener and their events in life where one could associated a certain song which could remind of years gone by it may either be happy or with sad situation. So their are times when one just heard unexpectedly a song which remind them of someone or beloved and once it touch the heart and soul. Just like what you feel your expression is manifested by a song which could have an effect on your moods and it is also one way of venting different mix feeling and after you have release it one feel relieved.

i don't see any disadvantage in listening music at home unless you play it so loud that disturbs the neighbors or other members of the household... i do like listening to music of any kind depends on my mood. but most of the time, i like those love songs/soft music, and i like the older songs (but not so old, just songs from the 80's & 90's) i don't get bored listening to the same music as long as its something i like... i enjoy listening to music in any place...as long as it sounds good. even on malls, we like to sit on the entertainment area where there's someone playing a piano...we usually take a rest in that place when we are malling... going to concerts is also fine with me, and i enjoy it coz its more lively and the performance of the singers adds up on the excitement... but so far, i haven't been in any concert now... but going to the bars is a no no for me...i don't like & i don't enjoy place like that...

hi ckyera, yeah, they are disadvantages like those who really like to sing in karaoke and the sounds so loud it is no longer music to the ears but a terrible noise. The classical music though it had been famous in the past the lyrics and the tunes is so calming and peaceful. the wording is decent and the listener could even connect on its melody and could interpret the lyrics as something meaningful which is likely lacking on modern music. The song too is so clear and the singer voice very soulful. bit other dislike to listen to it as they think it is sort of old fashion and many youngster could not relate to it as they think classical music as boring. Since, most young indulge in metallic or instrumental music like metallica, rap, rock, hiphop, RNB, instrumental or pop or even romantic song when one listen to it you just could feel being carried away with its tunes which very fascinating to the listeners. very charming indeed..

yeah specially when the one singing on videoke is out of tune! haha well with classical music, i am not really into it but i do appreciate them when i hear them, its kinda relaxing but sometimes it makes me wanna sleep...hehe but the one that we are listening on malls, although he's playing on piano, his music are not really those old classical songs, he also plays those modern love songs and different kind of songs which is really great. my husband just love music that's why when we saw some free entertainment on malls, we usually stop for a while & watch & he's also fond of singing in a videoke...haha by occasion only...

First, I love to listening music for my own, not to disturb others as done by some unruly youths on some festive occasions. I only stress on the positive impacts of listening music. If you want to enjoy music at your heart's content, you must have a good sound system specially a home theater. I think listening music at home and in own personal room is the best way to enjoy music without bothering others.

hi faridmadeabillion, yeah, and since it is your home you could set the volume of your music player either low or increase depending in your moods if you like loud and lively music or just the slow or instrumental music. So far listening music on other venues so quite expensive and if one is not in tine with the crowds noise it may not be appealing to you. So listening at home is still the best option.

hi checkmail, Yeah, one could listen to music at unlimited pace at the comfort of your home without being disturb that someone would get angry with you playing loud music at your heart content. Since it is your home you could even sing the song while listening or dance while doing other activities such as reading or exercising while enjoying your choice of music..

I listened to the melodious music while watching a movie or whatever it is, carried away by ambience strains tone. Particularly, in the movie depicting the real life. Sounds and scenes that make the heart moved by the rhythm. Music can soothe the heart if we had so many trials.

I much prefer listening to music at home. At my age, I don't like crowds or late hours, not to mention the chunk that a concert would take out of my social security check. I prefer the old tunes and have accumulated a collection of 100+ CDs and a shoebox of tapes. Should I not find anything in my collection that I want to listen to, there is always the music channel on the TV.

hi bellis, Yeah, classical music is great and it reflect the past golden years which the music is very famous, calming, soothing, relaxing and the message it convey on the lyrics is wonderful have a lot of meaning making the listener inspired coupled with lot of imagination and by simply listening on it one could recollect the past, things or person whom one is reminded every time your favorite song is play. It bring back unforgettable memories.

The advantages: happier environment, get more exercise in, know more songs Disadvantages: not concentrating as fully as with it off, dancing or singing when should be doing something else like calling a sick friend on the phone, having music on when someone calls on the phone and not being able to hear unless you tell them to wait a minute and you'll turn it down-that doesn't impress a boss or people calling long distance very well. But I like the happier environment and I need the exercise.

hi writeredge, Yeah, music is very infectious as it touch the soul and makes the imagination go wild or slow down depending on how an individual perceive music as enjoyable or makes her sad which accompany one current emotion. I think anyone could have their own favorites music which have great impact on their life which be an inspiration to make their life feel right. While, on the other hand as you mention music makes anyone so engage that their is a tendency to get out of ones awareness of one surrounding when one get so affected with the lyrics it may either slow down or make one productive or lazy at the same times.

I really dont see any disadvantage of listening to music at home. Maybe others would see it that way but I guess I just dont. Listening to music at home is probably the best way to listen to music. It would be just you and your music. If you're not using the speakers you can turn the volume up as loud as you want but of course it would be up to you just how loud your neighbors can tolerate.LOL If you're using headphones or earphones it would be like you're in your own private world. You also have the choice of playing your personal playlist or you can just tune in to the radio and hear what other people likes to hear. Concerts are a nice way to listen to music but that kind of experience is not just about the music. It's about the experience itself, getting to see the live band, being with friends, dancing to the music, having a great time over all. But for me in this case, the music is only secondary reason. I guess I just like to enjoy music as it is. It would just be me and the songs.

hi bjcyrix, It really fascinates me with your reply since you always celebrate your spirit of individuality. i think you have the right reasons which are acceptable since it is your home, you could play any music you likes with no one to dictates you which song to play like a disc jockey on the radios. Nothing really beat listening music at the comfort of your home you could even sing at the same time or dance like crazy as if their is no one watching you. you could indulge in your favorite music play list repeating each song depending on your moods which inspires you to lighten your feeling especially if you just undergo from heavy emotional situation and by merely listening to music you could change your current auras to reflect your feelings which is manifested both in physical and in emotional aspects.

while listening music in home is a part time to spend and relaxing time.here we have no dis advantages in listening in music with melodies but with ugly and violent ones.
• Philippines

hi sathya, Yeah, very true music influences a person moods to change from sadness to becoming cheerful from becoming sad like many emo people do. they could relate on it. With violent scenes they are mostly seen in a movies and their is also rude song when the lyrics when one listen well it contain dirty wording so they are really bad influences.

Well, i will prefer to listen to music, outside as well.. But definitely not live band as it's very noisy for me, and no concerts too.. haha =D I like a quiet place, or quiet pub, whereby songs are being played at random, or being dedicated by others, so that i wont feel bored with the same songs.. PLus, it's a nice place to know new songs, or even much older songs, which i'm interested in.. hehe

Well, music is plenty when you listen at your ipod or in the internet through your computer. Sometimes by just listening and making review is also a sources of earning such as in the case of slice the pie..Are you a member of those sites? Lol..pub house in my place is call a cabaret or club where their are lot of agogo dancer/striptease dancer and male gigolo doing dance too during happy hours..Do you really frequent those places?.. By the way, i like to listen to music when i am surfing the net like the time i am doing lotting or when i am about to sleep it is like a lullaby to my ear. some music makes me slow down or move fast depending on the tunes i get from listening.. Well,classical song is also good when the music is so slow one could understand the lyrics of the music when it is play like in an instrumental background, acoustic or accapela..they really great!

Always i like to listen music when i'm at home. I listen all kinds of music. I think listening music give me pleasure and energy when i work at at home or free at home. I also always prefer to listen music which has good lyric and quality sounds. When i'm not at home i listen music through my cell phone. Music is everything for me. So i love music very much!

hi sathi_biswas, yeah, music is very inspiring at it have an effect on the moods when one feel sad all have to do is to listen to cheerful music to change the moods since if one indulge in listening to sad music it only worsen the situation making the person feel like being so depress. then, if one feel inspired then should avoid indulging in sad music it would only eliminate the happy feelings. music inspires and it describes life to the highest senses.
