    I have a varied taste in music.

    Each piece can instantly lift my mood, whether it is Mozart or Electric Light Orchestra. Dancing with the chords is an added bonus.

    Sometimes I feel that

    when I put my headphones and listen to the music I feel lighter and that all my insecurities and stress just wash away.

    Listening to Mozart's Requiem

    for what seemed like the hundredth time, I find myself lost in a parallel universe, where I am breathtakingly tortured by my own wretchedness and the beauty of the melody. If I could cry, I'd shed all my tears for the way I feel as the notes and the words fluently and...

    This is so true. Most genres have the ability

    to feed whatever it is your feeling. I don't know...being fairly new here....if you can share youtube links or not, so for now I will suggest this song as a definitely mood lifter and stress reducer...works for me every time. -Raven Vivaldi - Trio Sonata "La Follia" in D Minor...

    Dear God I forgot how therapeutic this could be.

    Turned on some acoustic breaking Benjamin and sang at the top of my lungs along with him. Riding this high of true elation that can only be achieved from moments like this. So thankful, so incredibly thankful for the music in my life, the talent for singing that I have and the...

    Guitars

    If you were to take note of the callouses on my left hand, you could probably track my moods fairly well. When I have things on my mind - good, bad or ambiguous...my fingers start itching for my guitar.Through the years, I have expressed my emotion through various art forms, but...

    His fingers rest gently on the keys a soft

    gentle touch. A bond formed. His heart bleeds between the sounds of the black and whites before him. Tears sing a melody that resonates deep within as he coaxes musical poetry from reluctant ivory. I miss you... Where are you? Why are you not with me? Can you hear me? Can...

    Playing and listening to music has honestly

    kept me alive. During my many episodes of severe depression, it was my guitar and my stereo that kept my head above the water. Playing and creating music makes me feel as though time is standing still and nothing else exists.

    I listen to music and it brings me face to face

    with the colors of my soul. I don't know how else to explain it. I know me when I hear it.

    Is it weird that I can listen to all types of

    music and it can make me feel better? I could listen to a song about sex when I'm sad and it'll make me feel better .-.

    I for some unknown reason I sing When I am

    stressed, I remember far back into childhood's hour how I'd spend my days outside playing and exploring nature, all the while singing to all my little creature friends.A song I enjoy singing too, lol... even though I am probably tone deaf.

    when you listen to a song for the first time and you just instantly fall in love with it.

    I've found that even in my worst moments there

    is a song, a lyric, a melody that understands me and at that moment I don't feel quite as alone. Life isn't always easy but if I didn't have music I don't know where I'd be today.

    Music is nourishment

    for the soul. A song with just the right lyrics can motivate, the right melody can resonate with one's inner power, and the right rhythm can cause one's inner energy to pulsate again to the beat. There are times when I am depressed that I will sing a motivational song pouring...

    I make music for me I make music

    as an outlet for control I make music to feel I make music to abandon this place, this difficult place inside of myself, and be a different element. Out of my element. Think about it, think about the music. No one will judge you there. No one will call you out on your madness...

    I've been listening to music on Pandora these

    past few days when I'm on here. My stories are inspired by whatever that particular song makes me think about or what mood it induces.
