I'm making a research article about the wonders of music when it comes to our consciousness. How does music affect our minds with which include our creativity, state of mind, memory and pain. Have you ever had a thought when you felt that music somehow have a powerful effect on you? I'll be making analysis on different comments you might respond and will be all rated, and as I progress on my research article. I hope it'll render me some hints to know my audiences. Thanks! I wish you good luck and blessings.

Music definitely has a huge effect to our consciousness. For example, whenever I hear a certain song, even if you haven't heard it for a long time, there's always this one person that pops out in your mind whenever you hear it or say if I hear a classical piece, it makes me wanna go to bed and drift off to sleep. Good luck on your research. I hope my input somehow helped.

I have always found music very powerful emotionally. many songs remind me of events in my life, happy or sad. there are songs that the lyrics move me to tears to this day. much of that is down to the soulful vocal strength of the singer. Other songs can bring a smile to my face as i recall happy occasions that occurred during a time when the song was being played in the background. I expect that music has some kind of control to our wellbeing that help us connect with happy or difficult situations. Even the most basic of tribal drumming can stir us into a frenzy of excitment, excellent for going into battle from eons ago. I am sure i have not mentioned anything you have not thought off but for me the world is a much more enjoyable and emotional place with the inclusion of music.

I really appreciate your idea ajk111, actually, I'm more interested on how you infer that music has some kind of "control" to our well being that help us connect with our past events. this is getting interesting. thanks! I wish you good luck and more blessings.

I was once on a class trip and I had really huge pains, but when I tried to listen to some music while waiting for my parents to come, I felt that the pain kind of disappeared or became more faint.

Thanks for the feedback doroffee, you gave me an idea about our freedom of will, do you really think by that time you tried to listen to music to ease some of your pain that time just happened naturally or by choice?

Music describes my personality, my thoughts, point of view, and most especially my present feelings as I play it. Music is part of all our life.

For me some music makes me feel energetic and some makes me feel relax. I think it is about the speed of the music that affects me? I think.

A long time ago when I was in my high school years, I had a crush who already had a gf, everytime I listened to lonely love songs, the hurt I felt then intensified because of the lyrics of the song. So I guess songs can play with our emotions sometimes,it can either make us happy or more lonely.

I have read that music, especially classical music, makes your brain release endorphins, which are your body's natural pain killer more effective than paracetamols. I tried once to listen to classical music, it was Clair de Lune by Debussie, when I had a headache and it did for a few minutes relieved me of the pain.

To me music soothe the soul and minds. After a long day work, listening to soothing music can help us unwind and relax. I tend to go back to memory lane when I listen to the songs/music of yester years during my college time. I will think back of all my school friends, and the fun we had.

a big difference between a movie with a great soundtrack and that with a not so good one. won't you feel more involve or feel the emotions portrayed in the movie when there's a background music? just try watching a movie and mute the background...

I think music has an effect on us. I like to put on some lively music when I clean. It makes it less of a chore, because while I clean I also dance around. Cleaning then becomes fun.

I always believed that music has great effect on my consciousness. Whenever I feel down and under the weather, I will just listen to an upbeat music and then next thing I know, I am on the verge of dancing. The same way when I am all happy and just plain contented with life, just hearing sad songs especially those which reminds me of someone is enough to make me sad the whole day.

I like classical and instrumental music. For me they provide a great way of relaxing myself. I do agree that music always affects our emotionig even our mood and actions. If you notice, department stores play fast beat music to encourage shoppers, restaurants play classical music or soft music to enhance the ambiance and perhaps the mood of those dining. So it does play a great role in our actions and mood.

absolutely it can effect us.i think that the feeling you respond depends what kind music you listen.some can make you cry while some can make you laugh.so if a person are sad he should not listen to blues.but as long as i can see.people (include me)who are unhappy are intend to listen sad music.i dont kown why

music brings back old memories. There's a moment when I heard an old song that I really liked when I was a teenager, I haven't heard of that music for years, and when I heard it playing, I suddenly remembers all the happy and emotional moments of my life back then. :)

I think music is influencing my life in a lot of ways. Classical music makes me feel relaxed that helps me regain my focus in whatever tasks I need to accomplish throughout the day. Music can also inspire me to do my best as certain sounds and lyrics of the songs that I listen to contain motivational themes of perseverance and determination. Sentimental songs bring about memory and pain as the words in the lyrics strike my mind to project the images of yesterday's tragedies and failures.

Do you know the song that belongs to Pearl Jam that is called Black ? It reminds me my ex girlfriend that I loved , but , it didn't work out. I loved to hug her and we had some things we liked to do even as friends , after our relationship got cool down...I miss her and she is now not available , she lives with her new boyfriend. I guess the love just wasn't there as I felt. That song makes me tears and some longings.
