Music is a safe kind of high! The reason I stay intoxicated: Guest Post

I think people who can play a musical instrument or can sing  and
dance, are extremely attractive.

Every single time I have learned that a person can sing, or play a
musical instrument really well, or groove to the beats of the song in
the background  with drool-worthy ease, I have almost always developed
a crush on them. And I’ve always requested them to play something or
sing, when I meet them.
I wrote this to pen my running thoughts on music.

I instantly develop a liking towards people with similar taste in music
as mine.
When I was younger, I attended quite a few concerts. I do not know
really, why I don’t do that anymore.
My favorite part of concerts was when the band plays a song everyone
knows, so everyone sings along, all out of tune.
But then the singer stops singing the words to the music and you see the
smiles on the band members’ faces because they know that people care
about their music, and that is one of the most beautiful things to see!

What exactly drives us and makes us impassioned about a certain genre?

I feel lots of things. Most of the time, I feel the song provides a nice
background to my current existence as I try to wade over the loud,
concrete city traffic snarl.
Some music gives me much more than a peaceful environment, and I have
trouble actually putting words to that.
A certain section of my playlist with country collection gives me such
feelings of nostalgia that I am almost transferred to another time,
often that feeling is of a memory or emotion that I can’t quite hold
in my mind. Some music gives me energy; I seldom listen while writing,
but surely, the songs play in my head, giving me a boost!

Some songs (some you would expect, some not) move me deeply. These are
actually the strangest, because these feelings I cannot control at all
and at the same time, these are the ones I cherish most if that makes
sense.

When the written word, a passage in a book or a poem, moves me I think I
know why, but when a piece of music does, I can’t really tell. Even if
it’s accompanied by a wonderful piece of lyrics, it’s the music that
tips the wages.

We all have a favorite tune though.
Mine is when sometimes a song can blind me to what I may be doing, strip
me away from my defenses and makes me vulnerable.

Personally, I listen to music everywhere I am, with my own company ;
there’s no location too remote, no setting too complicated no work too
intense for me not to have a soundtrack to it. I am on my laptop right
now and there is music playing, in the background. When I get into my
car and start the engine, music starts playing. When I put my sons to
sleep and spend some time beneath the ceiling stars, we enjoy the
soundtrack of Alvin and the chipmunks, lately.

Does music heal?

I think so. You are what you listen to.
Dense aura grows on me rapidly. I use music to deal with my thoughts
daily.
Music for me is like the background for my work, my routine existence.
Think of it like frosting on a cake.
The cake is good… But the frosting makes it better!
If I’m feeling particularly sad?
Yes, maybe something to get my brain to not sway into the negative zone.
If I’m feeling happy? Great! Music can amp it up.

I don’t know if I must call it “treatment” like to be therapeutic?
I’m not sure. I guess I wouldn’t know due to the fact that I am only
saying it from my own experience and not from a professional stand.
It does help me though.
