    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...

    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...

    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.

    If there's no one who understands you,

    there's always one song, one artist that does.

    Priscilla Hernandez - The Waking of the

    Spring A beautiful song that helps me relax and get into a lighter mood. The music and lyrics make me want to put a wreath of flowers on my head with a long skirt/dress and wander around the woods...so nice:D

    Finding old music you used to love is like

    getting back in touch with an old friend. I love how when you find that one song, you instantly go back to that same feeling you used to have, or in that same mindset you were in when you heard it in the first place.

    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.

    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...

    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 want to post a song.

    .. But I don't know how, on this damn phone. It says it copied Pink's concert version How Come You're Not Here to my clipboard for me... Anyone know how to find the damn clipboard on a Samsung Galaxy S5? I've never cared before...

    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 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.

    ...so I did today. A perfect piece of music to

    draw to. I feel such a deeper inner satisfaction and contentment, and I was able to complete two drawings that I feel turned out well. This is how a Sunday should be. I rarely get that inward peace but I have it for this moment. :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5l6jF8v_Wus...

    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...

    I can honestly say music is a really big part

    of my life, but then again I find it hard if it's not the same for everyone. I spend a good percentage of my days listening to music, whether I'm on my way to work, or other places. Music calms me down and at the same time it helps me express myself. I love to write with music...

    from music, a certain vibe or feeling and you just can't find the right song.

    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...
