    I Only Sing In The Shower...

    I only sing in the shower. I would join a choir, but I donโ€™t think my bathtub can hold that many people.โ€จ

    It's Essential

    I have two mediums that get me through each and every day: Talk radio segments or podcasts from iTunes and music.ย  Music is good at gearing me up and giving me a lift.ย  I have a very mixed selection of music on my iPod.ย  I can easily go from listening to the Ramones to John...

    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.....

    Without music it's hard to clean my house and room. I love singing and dancing with nobody around. Yes I'm that shy person :)

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

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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!

    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.

    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.
