How does music affect you?
« on: June 05, 2017, 03:37:51 PM »
I would like to know from people on here how they are are affected by music and how it affects their mind!

For me personally it depends on what music I am listening to at that particular time.

If for instance it is Metal of any genre it's going to be because of anger or because I want to just want to get angry about something.

If it is Hard Rock or 1970s Power Pop then I just want to rock out to it.

If it is some soft music such as Jazz, some 1950s Rhythm and Blues or Pop/Rock from the 70s or 1980s it's going to calm me down and give me time to relax.

Or if it is a soundtrack then that gives me time to amerce myself into a film's musical score the same can also be said for a rock opera that tells a story throughout an album regardless of genre. :)

I like instrumental music; it's beautiful and gives me feelings that I fail to explain. Haven't you guys felt that? You're listening to music, and it's so moving that you feel.. you've entered a different state of existence.

When my music has words, I choose songs that I think will edify me: pensive one, encouraging ones, and such. So, I feel either thoughtful or uplifted. I don't listen to sad or angry songs, because I don't want to perpetuate negative emotions :p

Yes, indeed, my love it happens to me too many particular songs I hear. For me in this different state of existence, it also feels very nostalgic and parts of innocent, very hard to explain but it feels as though the song has reached its point where it shows it true nature whether I'm happy, sad, angry, etc. It feels very nostalgic and innocent though upon certain music. Wheater it is OST, Jazz, Rock, Uplifting, overall beautiful music etc. etc.  :silverweed3

Generally the music that I put, is based on my state of mind. If I'm sleepy, I need epic, noisy, battle music. If I want to relax my nerves, I put on relaxing music. If I want to dream, I play music of only rain and wind. If I need to go on an adventure, I have many OSTs to choose from.

Basically, I'm always dreaming of music  :vilthuril

I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

I will elaborate by saying that I also like long Progressive Rock songs by a range of different bands both old and new, that also includes the Psychedelic/Space Rock genre.

Musical genres don't die off, Metal, Punk, Prog. They are all still with us.
Some, like Progressive Rock aren't as publicly spoken of today as it was back in the 1970s but it does have a hefty fan base who still likes that genre of music.
