    How Could I Not?

    Music without meaning would be pointless to me.Lyrics are key for me. The way they are sung, accentuated by the instrumentals, can make me feel a number of emotions. I typically prefer music that I can relate to: lyrics that embody the exact way that I have been feeling, my views...

    I love finding a song

    where the lyrics are so relevant to what I'm experiencing; it's a nice feeling to know that I'm not the only one feeling the way I do.

    I'm listening to Eminem recovery,

    this is what I like to listen to when I'm hurting inside, conflicted with the thought of using again. I love that today I'm clean and drug free. Hell yeah I'm the winner. Bless all you that have got and stayed clean.

    Everyone is raving over Pharell William's song

    HAPPY. That includes me. I am sure that many people like it for different reasons. The beginning of it seems to say his happiness comes from a relationship. He says, "Sunshine she's here, you can take a break" Boy! If she can out shine the sun in his life, she truly brings a...

    This is a video I made for my brothers band.It didn't sync as well as I had hoped, but I still like it. I should do it again and try to get it right.

    Music Is My Cure

    I love music, it's my cure for loneliness and for my bad mood. I just lock myself in my room whenever I feel bad, whenever I need serenity and peace of mind. I love meaningful songs. I hate loud and non-sense music! They're just noise, very unpleasant to my ear. I hate dumb songs...

    I like music and lyrics

    that mean something. Music that gives you a feeling. Sang and played with emotion. I think Black by Pearl Jam is a good example. Aerosmith-Dream On is another

    More importantly, I like how music gives

    experiences meaning. Anyone who says that music is not important is... well, just flat-out lying. A perfect example: One day, a long time ago, I was leaving work to go to an interview, and I had a thought that I'm sure many of us have had.. I had a "freak out" moment and thought...

    You there, you're better off here You there,

    you're better off here Funny it takes no time to fall back down Funny it takes the time to get back up Uncover your eyes Uncover your eyes There's no sun, where is your direction? Uncover your eyes Uncover your eyes Ask yourself, where is your reflection?

    Love is shared by two people

    who cannot go a day without thinking of the other. You crave their touch, their smell, the sound of their voice. You want them more than anything else you can imagine. Your body and mind aches for the other.You live for the moment it is just You and Me......

    I love this heading, "I like Music With Meaning,

    " but doesn't all music have meaning?!? Someone has initiative for their tones to be heard over [x] broadcast(s). All initial thoughts have meaning (the brain's synapsis). For those who have 'meaningless music,' press forward until a resolution can find itself.

    This song has so much meaning for me.  It is a true song and I remember this night so well.  I was seventeen and alone with my newborn baby girl.  She was sleeping peacefully on the couch beside me.   My heart was in my throat as I worried about the plight of these poor...

    that remind us awesome times.Lyrics sure are meaningful but sometimes a simple melody can bring you to a state of trance.I am repeating myself when I say I like all kind of music...for all kind of moods.

    Believe it or not I was a fan of pop music,

    I loved Lady gaga, Kesha, and Katy perry. But as I grew older I learned that some of the pop songs today have clearly no meaning, in my opinion. So I turned to metal and rock, I grew to love Evanescence more (I liked their songs even when I loved pop) and I started listening to...
