    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...

    ...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...

    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.

    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.

    Music is a connection with our primal elements

    and with our higher levels of consciousness -- the divine.

    Since being drawn in,

    as a teen, to the music of the 90's Seattle "grunge" scene and music coming out of there at that time, I've turned to music plenty of times to soothe my soul. I'd turn to varieties of rock, metal, electronica of all kinds, pop, classical, jazz and all sorts over the years to...

    Palladio (Vivaldi) Look

    for the Karl Jenkins version. Vivaldi is my favorite composer, but even if I didn't know his music this piece would blow me away. It so amazingly incredible. I vow one day to stand on a balcony and have this playing in the middle of a great storm. I want thunder, I want...

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

    I have my certain songs

    that keep me chill and relaxed. But I actually had & have had songs that relate to my relationship. Like seriously, lyric by lyric. Or just on point with how I feel. This Love by Taylor Swift When the Darkness Comes by Colbie Caillat Warrior by Beth Crowley I Was Made to Love...

    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.

    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...

    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'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.

    Ugh I hate when you really need a certain feel

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

    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 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 love music, they make a room feel alive

    as you dance, think of a scene you want to describe or really anything. Loud rock music was with me in my 13 years as I was sad and angry and I needed something loud enough to block my thoughts as I calmed myself down. It was music who let me write a new story or scenarios for...
