this will sound like an odd one, but I've noticed something and have a question about it.

 

does music really enhance stronger feelings?

 

I mean, the other day, I was feeling pretty down in any case, argument with the ex, so I put some Proof on, started listening to Kurt Kobain and started crying. probably didnt help that it was 11am and I had already had a few shots of Jack Daniels to calm myself, but it strikes me a a bit strange that music can have such an effect. then Razorblade Salvation by Jedi Mind Tricks came on, and I started feeling suicidal...its made me think about how much music can change your mood.

 

and on the subject of lyrics, reading alot of my lyrics, like my Outro to the beat of Kurt Kobain, it talks alot about suicide.

 

am I the only who finds that music changes moods, because of how I am, or is it fairly common?

I don't know about music making me want to go and cry or kill myself.

its not soley music, its more a composite of sh*t not going your way, then listening to songs about suicide not helping. its just struck me as odd more then anything else.

Yep. Music is an extension of our emotions, thoughts and beliefs in life. Music is like a way of getting in tune with how you want to feel. It can be the tool in a magical clairvoyance session with your own mind. It can show the world how you feel about something, bad or good. Or, it could be three minutes of catchy phrases and notes.

 

It's all dependant on the person in the end.

Interestingly enough, I did a report on this and some research says that lyrics only help to escalate emotions in songs when it's more of a positive reinforcement; angry and depressive songs evoke their respective emotions mostly with dependance on the tone of the voice and/or instruments, the overall timbre of the music, and how the music is composed instead of lyrical interpretations. In other words, the sound of Kurt's voice is more influencial than what he's saying.

Definitely.

Music can have a big influence on your emotions.

It's just like when somebody watch a sad movie and starts to cry...
