Lightbulb Why do you love music?

Well i thought this is a good question to ask everyone. Hopefully it has not been asked before. But why do you love music so much, and what is the reason or motive behind it? (this can mean playing it, watching it, or just listening to it)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I personally love it because without it id go ****ing crazy from so many different things. Between dumass people, girlfriend/relationship, school, and money problems its enough to go nuts and wana kill myself out of pure anger or frustration. I think the reason i listen to it sooo much and study it is because it takes my mind off everything else, and sometimes the music is able to relate to me. Also i LOVE playing the drums mainly i think because it lets me get anger out. I love the guitar, and think it is probably better than the drums in many ways, but have played the drums my entire life and in a few bands because of the rewarding feeling of just sitting there and owning them. Pounding very hard and getting any frustration out.

Im sure theres a good deal of people that can relate. Theres nothing like sitting down after a long and hard day and just listening to some good chill music, and maybe having a cigarette or two.

Well thats my 2 cents. Sorry to ramble, and if you actually made it to this point in the post, thanks for reading So please tell me what you feel,and why.

Not sure why. Life just feels empty without it. It's necessary.

I honestly can't figure why I do, I'm sure it's some sort of psychological crap about certain types of sound waves....blachfrickinblah. I can't stand for it to be quiet, so I fill the space with noise, noises that are appealing to me. Music also helps me think.

It's a hard question to answer. I think it's the easiest thing to relate to and takes no effort to do so. Also like WayFarer said, like feels empty without it.

A love of music generally begins in your early teens. It gives you an identity and a feeling of belonging to one particular clique whether you realise or not. This slowly changes. You begin to like artists that maybe your friends don't like. You strive for individualism. Whether this is achieved is debateable. What is achieved is an invisible bond between you and your music. Your music asks for nothing and gives everything. Are you feeling angry, upset in love, disappointed in the system? Your music feels the same way. The artists speak to you. They relate to you musically or lyrically.

When you go to see a favourite live band. Hundred of people feel the same thing you do-belonging, exhilaration. On this one night you are all together sharing the same hopes and dreams, anger and disappointments.

Music helped me emotionally through my parents divorce when I was 15. My love for music was strengthened tenfold from here. I am married and have children. I love them dearly, but music; selfishlly, will always be my first love.

Music will never let me down, and lets me express my emotions by proxy. Music still get's me excited, angry, upset, intense and a whole host of other emotions because of it's honesty. That is why when ever I listen to music it has to be honest. I can't describe what exactly this attribute is, but I think most of us, by merely being on this site; can understand that honesty that is so sorely missing from what the populace terms music.

Music is a powerful medium. It is also the most personal.

I like what you said here alot. Just one thing, i do not always think its to be an individual, but to find yourself.
