How music transform our moods and attitudes?

Good day Fellow Mylotter, I was wondering how music transform our moods. This is one thing I observed when I was watching a talk show with a music on the background. At first, I was quiet and dull in watching the show but when I heard the music on the background, I began to like the show and watch it attentively. At first, I find the show quite boring but as the background music plays, it becomes interesting. And to my surprise, I almost finish watching the show without noticing that it is already late and I need to sleep. Indeed, music do play a vital role and effect to the show that we are watching. Aside from that, it gives life to both - to the show itself and to its viewers. With the above, I was really wondering how does music transform our moods and our attitudes. Did you also encounter and experience what I have been through?

Listening to music has become my favorite way of relaxation and getting rid of the stresses of the day. I listen to CDs of my favorite music every evening after I get back home from my work. That very much refreshes the mind, helping maintain mental health.

Music could really transform our attitudes because when we listen to songs that are calm, country or religious, it could really lift our hearts up and the music could rejuvenate our mind and soul. The rhythm and beat of hip hop, rhythm and blues and dance music could make us dance. If we listen to rock songs, we can feel the anger rushing out through our veins (does not really apply for me actually). I also love background music because it could stir up our emotions more, depending on the situation too, if it's a sad movie, sad music of course. If it's a happy one, you get to listen to a happy tune!

I often notice as I watch a movie the music changes with the type of scene.... like romantic, scary, funny, or whatever. I think if the music didn't correspond with the scene, that it would not hit us as hard emotionally. The music cues our emotions to change much more than what may be happening on screen.
