do you think music can change your mood?
@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.

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.
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 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.
