Musical Emotions...

I love music, I always have and I always will. I don't think there is a more powerful force in the World to evoke a strong emotion in someone. I certainly know from my own experience that music has a huge effect on my mood, and can bring it up or down in a second.

Most of the time, I use music to zone out and drown out the World for a out any emotions that I feel and just let myself get lost in it for a while. I can do that for hours, and usually it is positive and makes me feel good.

But then there are the other times, like now.....when it makes me feel a whole load of crap. Songs that spark a memory, take your mind back to a time and place where you were unhappy or something difficult was happening in your life.
I have said on previous stories that I could put together a running soundtrack to travel through the whole of my life, depicting every emotion under the sun.

Some songs, as much as I love them, can reduce me to tears in an instant. And I hate that. I made the mistake of letting a few of these run through my random play list this evening, and cannot believe just how much they have dragged my mood down, embedding into my head a spark of a memory that I hadn't thought about in a while.

So, most of the time, music is positively powerful, making people feel good, and allowing them to express a joyful emotion. It is good to let the bad emotions out as well, and as this is the only way I know how to do that, perhaps I will just let them carry on playing....
