    It Drowns Out All Other Thought

    when i'm listening to loud music it feels i can't concentrate on anything else but the music, the pounding of the drum hits deep down. i don't have head space to think or feel anything else, it drowns out so much noise in my brain and makes me feel good.

    I Love My Loud Music

    My mom used to get so irritated, when i used to do homework, or anything my music was always on, and the louder, the better! She came down to my room when i was about 17 to tell me to turn it down, sure enough i was sleeping, she asked how i could fall asleep to such loud music...

    Heavy Metal Is My Solace

    When I'm really tired or depressed I like to listen to Coheed and Cambria, or Evanescence or Seether or something really angry in general. I just have to to get it all out of my head. If I'm trying to block stuff out I listen to Hollywood Undead.

    Lost N The Music

    When i listen to it at louder volume it just floods my auditory cortex and it's just way more stimulating, and moving. The sense of sound is an invaluable resource as well as potential source of pleasure, if you derive pleasure from music that is.

    When I'm In a Good Mood

    The louder the better. When I'm in a really good mood, I crank up my favorite songs and sing my heart out as loud as I can. I can't do chores around the house without my favorite songs turned up. I drive my husband nuts in the car because I like the music loud. My 4 year...

    Feel It

    I like my music so that I can feel it. I want to just sit and take it all in. I love to sit in the car and just zone out. If at home I close my eyes and just dance alone however I feel. It really sets my mood.

    Whoops

    I've probably damaged my hearing by now but aah well. If my music's on, it's on loud, and it's not often off. Whether I have headphones on or it's through my speakers, I just want that feeling of being immersed in the music and not being able to hear any background crap, haha...

    Listening to music really helps. The lyrics help me relate to the song I am listening to. Even if I cry, it helps. Also writing my feelings out helps too.

    in the past I had a major struggle with depression. I listened to sad music when I was very sad and it made things worse. I would not recommend doing this.
