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 while.....play 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, em
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....
