So pretty much for anything I would do in a day
Except for when I am writing of playing music

It really depends complelty not on what I'm doing
But on what my mood is that day

I like to listen the more of the 'big picture' first listen through
Before picking out and listening to certain aspects of the song

Yes

What is your favorite genre of music? always changing

Do listen to music when doing certain activities (ie. working out, or studying)?
(if so, please list the activity)

Yes, working and whenever I'm on the move without company.

If you answered yes for the question above, then what kind of music do you find yourself listening to when performing the activity?

Nothing with much subtlety. Rock, hip hop, grime. The more active the more likely it is to be dance music of some kind.

Do you find yourself listening to more of the 'music' in a song or the 'lyrics'?
Depends on the circumstances, but the music is more instinctive.

Do you feel that you are/can be emotionally affected by the songs you listen to?
Definitely.

Do you have any strong memories that are attached to certain songs?
Yep, loads, that's what you get for having a ever-present soundtrack from the age of 15!

If there is a device near me that can play music then 98% of the time its on.

If you answered yes for the question above, then what kind of music do you find yourself listening to when performing the activity?

When I run i generally listen to heavier or louder stuff

Depends on the music. I generally don't pick out lyrics the first time i hear a song.

Definitely.

this really depends upon what 'phase' i'm goin through, and is normally ever evolving, however currently i guess i would call it altcountry and folk, though i'm also listenin to alot of funk and classic rock

Do listen to music when doing certain activities (ie. working out, or studying)?
(if so, please list the activity)

i normally have my ipod on me at all times,......i listen to music while driving, cleaning/cooking at the house, when i'm just layin around reading, on the computer, running, in fact i think the only time i dont listen to music is while fishing,.....


If you answered yes for the question above, then what kind of music do you find yourself listening to when performing the activity?
depends on my mood

Do you find yourself listening to more of the 'music' in a song or the 'lyrics'?
first i hear the music, but if the lyrics dont hit me, i normally grow tired of it and it wont last long in rotation

Do you feel that you are/can be emotionally affected by the songs you listen to?
i dont know how i could NOT be affected

Do you have any strong memories that are attached to certain songs?

i do,......alot in fact,....i'll share a few:
neil young's old man is everything i've ever wanted to say to my dad, and i remember the exact moment i realized that


pam tillis' maybe it was memphis is an early 90s mainstream country song, but i'll always remember thats what the 'cover band' was playin when i danced with my first crush at the street dance during the county fair, i even remember what we both wore

mo money mo problems by biggie smalls was the song my best friend and i sang the whole time we were in glaveston for spring break our 8th grade year, that would end up being the last trip she and i would take together before her death

the night they drove ol dixie down - the band, is a song my mother and i used to sing when i was very little,....she would point to me and i would sing the chorus

What is your favorite genre of music? Progressive rock I guess.

Do listen to music when doing certain activities (ie. working out, or studying)?
(if so, please list the activity)
Studying, working out, reading forums

If you answered yes for the question above, then what kind of music do you find yourself listening to when performing the activity?

Studying: Sometimes I listen to music when studying... and usually music without or with little focus on words... Isis, Tangerine Dream etc. But I mainly listen to Bach - and it's not just because a few psychologists think that Baroque music is good for it. I choose Bach because I like it, it fits the above criteria and it's more balanced out than other classical... I love Rachmaninoff but I can't listen to that because there are both very quiet and loud parts. Turning up the volume to hear the quiet parts means that the loud parts are too loud!

Working Out: I can't really work out anymore due to chest problems, but I used to listen to something energetic like thrash or punk.

Foruming: I tend to listen to music I've already heard because I can't do justice to music I haven't heard before if I'm getting distracted by forums. I'd prefer to give my undivided attention to music I haven't heard.

Do you find yourself listening to more of the 'music' in a song or the 'lyrics'?
Definitely music... when I've heard the songs a couple of times then I'll begin paying attention to the lyrics. That is partially influenced by what I'm doing at the time. If I'm reading on forums, I pay even less attention to lyrics.


Do you feel that you are/can be emotionally affected by the songs you listen to?
Of course.

Do you have any strong memories that are attached to certain songs?
Yes, I tend to be very nostalgic.

What is your favorite genre of music? ROCK...mostly hard, some metal, some soft. Pretty much I like everything except new jazz and elevator music.

Do listen to music when doing certain activities (ie. working out, or studying)?
(if so, please list the activity) At work of course. I wouldn't be able to function at the gym if I didn't have my MP3 player with me, and I have to have tunes when I'm driving or cleaning my house.

If you answered yes for the question above, then what kind of music do you find yourself listening to when performing the activity? Depends on my mood. I can tell you the first song I put on when I get to the gym is "For Those About to Rock" by AC/DC. It gets me pumped up and energized and wanting to kick some ass.

Do you find yourself listening to more of the 'music' in a song or the 'lyrics'? I can honestly say both. Very rarely will I find a song that I like purely for lyrics or music alone.

Do you feel that you are/can be emotionally affected by the songs you listen to? Yes, but I try not to let that get to me too much.

Do you have any strong memories that are attached to certain songs? sure...

Do listen to music when doing certain activities (ie. working out, or studying)? I listen to music when I do most anything: studying, showering, walking, veggin' out, eating, driving, etc.


If you answered yes for the question above, then what kind of music do you find yourself listening to when performing the activity? When I study I usually listen to classical or something instrumental like sufjan stevens. everything else pretty much varies.

Do you find yourself listening to more of the 'music' in a song or the 'lyrics'? I tend to listen to the music first, then I'll try to find out what the lyrics are.

Do you feel that you are/can be emotionally affected by the songs you listen to? Definitely.

Do you have any strong memories that are attached to certain songs? Oh yeah...
