    Music

    I've always been fasinated by music since I was a child. The fuzz solo on Donovan's Hurdy Gurdy Man really got my attention when I first heard it. So did Beck's Bolero when I first heard it. Now that I can actually play you put me in with a group of good musicians and the mind...

    Musical, Emotional Me

    I am a flautist as well as a church choir singer.  I have been known to break into tears or get suddenly hyper all depending on the song.  Music is a great healer.  It makes you face things, but gives you the courage to move on.

    Pick a Genre, Any Genre

    I cannot define myself by any certain type of music but I can tell you they each affect me differently. Metal motivates me and perhaps even inspires a bit of competition and aggression in my spirit which is good for business. Rock-n-Roll always makes me feel at home. Most Pop...

    Goosebumps

    I think everyone is sensitive to music, but only few people can actually FEEL the music. I drive down the road and I hear the first few bars of a song play and, if it hits me, goosebumps flare up all over my body. When that voice starts to sing...I can't help but feel my spirit...

    Tuned By the Tunes.

    It was only recently that I discovered that some people listen to music because they like the sound of the music. This knowledge might well have saved me from an unfortunate period in my teenage years where I looked down on people who liked what I thought was crass music. ...

    Yes. Music stirs up strong emotions,

    some songs touch a heart string so much I'll sob. It's almost a form of torture, to the point where I'm "please just turn that off" because I really can't take it!

    Yes, very much so.  Music defines my moods, my life.  I always listen to the words.   It may not be an artist I would normally listen to, but if the words touch my heart and soul,, it's a great feeling.

    A Bit Different

    Music always makes me feel emotional, in a good way of course. It could be a very heavy song, or a soft romantic one, either way I will still feel inspired. Unlike the rest of the planet, though, I listen to soundtracks of movies, shows, and video games instead of bands. By...

    Barrage Of Emotion

    When I hear music it's as if my soul gets lost in it. It makes me feel sad at times. Happy and full of joy at other times. Music has a way of transporting me to a place of pain and sorrow but ironically it can also lift me from that place and take me to a place of extreme bliss...

    Start the Waterworks

    Most of the music I like, pretty much soft rock with good lyrics, makes me cry these days. The music itself doesn't help, but it's mostly the lyrics that make me think about stuff. Songs about love/relationships are bad, and that accounts for a lot of songs. Any song about saying...
