I try to stay calm, and do things in a normal/natural way. So that'd be the same case for when I'm listening to music.
Is it just me or is this exact same post on the last page everytime I check this thread? It's creepy 0.o.

I think the whole thing is nonsense.
If you're sad and listen to a happy song, it's because you want to raise your mood.
THAT is your mood = I am sad and want to feel happy.

Unless you just wake up and hit 'random'...your mood determines what you play.
Sometimes your mood is, I don't give a ****.

Sometimes your mood is contrast, the basis of most art.
Impossible to just say 'mood means nothing' when there are so many different shades, and complexities in 'mood.'

''Sometimes I do listen to happy music when I'm sad though, or music I feel an emotional connection to.'' I think you didn't read the ''though'' in there. That means that I admit that this is one of the few times I let my mood decide what I want to listen to.

I don't think you read the part where I said, if your 'mood' says '**** it let's play random'....it's still your mood that determines what you play.

I've always liked the idea of methodically listening to my library. Going through and making sure I do everything 10 times, or going back chronologically over my music, but I can't enjoy the experience unless I'm in a particular frame of mind: the right mood. And that never lasts long enough to commit to those kinds of listening projects.

I listen to whatever I feel like listening to, lol (bad pun?)

No, I don't listen to music based on my mood. One minute I could be listening to Metallica, the next, Paul Simon. Honestly, it's really unpredictable what I may be listening to at any one time.

I feel like the only 2 ways album-listening is not whim-based is A) if you listen to shuffle, or B) if you have an inflexible systematic method. We're all slaves to affect.

I have no idea what you just said. I'm american and it's too late for me to think about what you mean, or look it up.

Basically he means if you have a strict system, e.g. a chronological rotation.
