Yeah, I feel that way sometimes, even if I'm listening to very loud music, with earphones I still get sleepy. I have no idea why. Maybe because our body needs to sleep, we can't control it.

I don't if anything most music wakes me up for the fact that I wanna always wanna start singing the song and think about the meaning of the song.

It all depends on how u feel while listenin to music. for most, music is a pastime, something they enjoy. for me music is relaxing , empowering or energizing. when i listen to music however my mood reacts to it thats wat happens accordingly. even heavy music can bring comfort.

This is me thinking (something I'm not too good at!), but its probably you relax so much your body thinks its nap time and tries to put you to sleep!

I dunno why but it happens to me too. When i play a song called "Sinnerman" by Nina Simone, i always start dozing off like halfway through the song. Its not a boring song or anything, i just think it depends on how the instruments and beats are used. Check it out and youll see what i mean.
