  • Music and your emotions

    Sort of a poll :

    Does beautiful music sometimes move you to the point of tears?

  • #2
    Absolutely. Tears, goosebumps, joy. That's the reason I listen. Music moves the soul.

      Yes. The Prayer by Josh Groban and Charlotte Church played on my Cecropia Supremes moved me like that.

        Yes, of course; it can be music which is supposed to be sad, or music which is so full of life and energy, it makes me happy. Or, it could be music which brings out emotion due to its context: think "Grow Old With Me" by John Lennon, which was released just before he was assassinated. Not a great song, but so poignant in light of what was to happen.

        A good or great piece of music should make you feel something.

          No music has ever moved me to tears by itself but in combination with visual images it has, and some music has definitely given me chills and goose bumps.

            Yes. In fact, my wife believes that music allows me to experience my feelings in ways that I do not absent the music.

              I was thinking about this last night, I often experience more emotion from a song than I do with a movie. This may be one reason that I spend more on audio equipment than I do for video...

                Yes... and for a real eye opener, someone here recommended that I read: THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON MUSIC by Daniel J Levitin(PhD). I procured it on interlibrary loan, and its a terrific book that explains exactly why this is the case(and lots of other amazing things about how we perceive music).

                    "Music has charms to soothe the savage beast,
                    To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak."


                    William Congreve

                    Upon reading his other quotes, I came to the conclusion he had, uh, let's say, an interesting relationship with women.

                              I suspect those who don't listen to music in there adult years have lost that connection between music and emotion. Over the years I've had strong emotional responses to many songs and instrumental pieces. Too many to remember them all.

                              As a less than 1 yr liver transplant recipient, I've recently been very touched by Greg Allman's "Southern Blood." The closing song is "Song For Adam", penned by Jackson Browne. Gregg is supposed to have had difficulty performing it, as it reminded him of Duane.
