I personally experience a lot of mood swings just listening to music.It takes me back to my old memories sometimes or makes me happy or sad and also makes me feel so romantic at times.Music can be such a stress reliever.

I dont either.I didnt mean i listen to music to feel happy . I meant when i listen to music,it makes me happy .There is a difference between those two . I feel sorry for you if you cant appreciate music.

@getthat Your feeling sorry for me is condescending. My life isn't sad, I'm not desperate if I don't listen to music. I dislike this wide-spread attitude that people who're not interested in music must be pitied as if they were lacking something.. Would you travel for hours and spend money to go to a museum and see an exhibition of paintings? I bet you wouldn't. What music is for you, the visual arts is for me. In contrast to you I don't feel sorry for people who're not interested in art. I don't care if they do or if they don't. It's their loss.

Definitely. Music can cheer you up or bring you down. One song can flood your minds with so many memories. Just a simple song can have so much effect on you. Music is a beautiful thing.

It's only music that can concrete your bad mood , anger in happy mood. Especially when you are sad and alone music completes the space of loneliness .

Oh, Definitely. I tend to listen to music that reflects the mood I'm already in. But hearing a song from the past can bring back such strong memories, with all the related emotions involved.

I think having music playing most of the time makes life peaceful. It helps a person to lay open their soul while erasing pain from heartbreak. It is a stress reliever. When my daughter passed away in 2004 music kept grief down while at home or work. Losing a child is bad enough in this world. Music has a language of its own.

True ! It feels good to know that so many people admire music and its been so helpful at times to make you feel better .Sorry to know whats happened with your daughter.

All I can say is music is a very powerful tool & it can greatly influence a person towards good or worse. Then again if we are in control we can turn the source of music off if we don't want it to negatively affect us & vice-versa

I use music often to set the mood. Certain types of music for concentration, another type for house cleaning, another for meditation, etc. music is a very powerful mood enhancer.

I also think that music is a good mood changer. When I am in a bad mood I try to find a song that I like with a good beat that I know the words too so that I can sing along too and that sometimes helps me get in a better mood. I like music with a good beat to it.

But remember that music is not real, I mean that we must face all the reality, good or bad. BTW, I myself a music addict, until I realize that all my life only in my imagination.. Something like that.. The dark truth!
