    I can't sleep unless I have some relaxing tunes

    in my ears. My favourite track at the moment is Ghost - Lullaby. it's both relaxing and heart breaking at the same time.

    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...

    At this very moment..

    ..every radio on the place is playing. Rocking out ...loud and proud. It will carry me away along with my sorrows..... It's hard enough to typing as I bop around in my chair....

    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...

    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 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...

    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 grow increasingly tired of people

    categorizing people because of the music they listen to . it seems like if you like a punk song all of a sudden you should like ALL punk bands if you like rap music its ALL you should listen to. If your were to look at my playlist on my phone you'd see that I'm kinda all over...

    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.

    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.

    Music really is one of those things

    that I can say saved me. It saved me from spiraling into my own darkness, and I'm glad that I had one thing, apart from writing, to keep me afloat during my darker days. It helped me feel everything that I had numbed and become disconnected from. It made me feel safe enough to...

    I can almost always get into a deep meditative

    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...

    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...
