    I love all music mostly 80's

    but what music really makes me feel amazing and relaxed and gives you them goosebumps is "Enya Caribbean blue" omg it's just beautiful really cleanses my soul :)

    Muddy Waters is the only thing I've been

    listening to lately. His music just tickles my soul the right way.

    I experience anxiety very often.

    Sometimes it keeps me from coming out of my room or being able to get out of a car if I see that the store or mall is busy. I very much dislike that this happens but it is normal for some people with Aspergers. But I can be calmed by certain opera music like the arias...

    When you want to scream in your truck to get

    pent-up anger out, this'll do: http://youtu.be/Ow_qI_F2ZJI The lyric that stays with me: "I'll leave you choking On every word you left unspoken"

    What doesn't kill you makes you wish you were

    dead. Got a hole in my soul, growing deeper and deeper. And I can't take one more moment of this silence. The loneliness is haunting me. And the weight of the world's getting harder to hold up. It comes in waves, I close my eyes. Hold my breath and let it bury me. I'm not okay...

    Jamming tunes at an unhealthy volume soothes

    the pain that is wearing on my broken soul. Whether for only a few minutes or a few tracks, tunes help me escape to a place where everything makes sense. It's a place where my mind finds peace and where the stress from the day evaporates with every rhythmic beat :)

    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...

    So I just listened to some music with my toes.

    Well, that's how it felt like anyway. I had put on the music on highest iPhone volume, and was in the bath, and I could feel the vibrations of the music in my toes. So I focused on that. Why not, after all sound is all about vibrations, and why should the ears get all that...

    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...

    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...

    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.
