    All The Time, Too

    it drowns out construction work, barking dogs, it inspires me to go on (esp reggae), it reminds me that I am alive, still, it drowns out my bad thoughts and comforts my troubled emotions.

    Music Stops Me Doing Stupid Stuff

    I love music. I never go anywhere without my MP3. I love to drown out all the crap that is going on around me. And it really does help me to stop me from doing stupid stuff by drowning out 'Mr Evil' (don't actually want to refer to him by name - he does not like when I talk about...

    There's not a day that goes by

    that I don't listen to music. It's my escape. The whole world can just disappear for a while.

    If it weren't for a select playlist each day,

    I don't know if I would still be here. Although it doesn't help with me not wanting to be here.....

    I would like to thank slipknot

    for saving my life, I can relate to their music , I hate school so much and I listen to slipknot as soon as I get home it really feels good and helps me get through the day, if it wasn't for them I would have been dead a long time ago

    I love listening to music in the morning

    before I go school and if I don't my whole day will go bleh! Music is my happy place. My world. My freedom. My soul. My life. It blocks out all the bad thing and replace them with the good things.

    I really do need music to get me through the

    day. When I get an arguments, I can't breathe. Once I get music , I start calming myself down.

    My Essential Survival Kit

    Music has been my savior on more than one occasion. I've always got something playing, wherever I am. I mostly listen to heavy metal, sad and depressing music. Some of the essential artists I always have on me are, Deftones, Staind, Soulfly, Snot, Tool, DevilDriver. Those are...

    It allows me to block out everyone.

    To pretend they aren't there. That they aren't saying what they're saying. That you're actually fine and not just saying it. I need it to get through everyday. Without it I'm always thinking the worse, hearing awful things, thinking about everything even though I shouldn't. It...

    Listening At Work

    I am an inside employee at Sonic drive in, and most of the time they play pretty good music. I work the switchboard, and have learned which stations I can listen to the radio on. I usually get scolded by my boss, but occasionally she'll put on the other headset and listen too!

    It's True!

    I don't know how I got into this predicament, but if I don't listen to music everyday it's like the stars out of alignment. The world isn't right. I can only guess that the sound of music keeps my soul alive the way that air keeps me breathing and alive. Music is in my core, my...

    I Love Music

    I love music so much that I find that I have to have my Ipod everywhere with me or I become overwhelm by everything. I find sometimes the outside noise becomes too much and that music calms me down.
