Music truly can move one's emotions and touch our heart and mind. I'm a smooth jazz lover and old school music lover as well. And yes it's good to have music in your life.

I have two.

 

When I'm a little down and the world doesn't seem to care enough for it's inhabitants such as people and animals, and I can only wish with all my heart for more compassion, I think of Simon and Garfunkle's the Sounds of Silence.  That's what happens when no one cares enough to make a change.

 

The one that I really love to sing with, dance to and feel good about is Katrina and the Waves Walking on Sunshine.  It's just awesome and makes everything fun.

I would not be happy without music in my life!  It depends on the mood I'm in as to what type of music I'm listening to.  I enjoy music while I cook, clean, walk outside, have company or a party, socialize in and outdoors... it's almost always on even if it's just in the background.  I enjoy christian contemporary,  country rock, classic rock, some alternative, piano, violin, instrumentals and others.  I don't want to know what the world would be like without music.  It affects the way we feel and how we respond to things.

Music has the ability to shut off the world around you and move to to another place.  For me, I can get lost in the music, which bring a smile to my face and lift my spirits.  The great thing about music and the different genres is that there is something for everybody.

 

I don't know what songs got me through difficult times, but I have listened to a lot of Rush and Toto and various jazz arists.  I have seen many bands in concert and had a wonderful experience.  I am thankful we live in a world with music and creativity.

Yes, music is the bread of life, I love rock n roll, country, classical and basically all music with soul :-) It calms me, increases focus and just makes life more pleasurable :-)

Music ABSOLUTELY makes life better. For most of us with any major event in life has occurred, there is usually a song attatched to that memory. Musicians are known to have a higher IQ. Music helps students study better.
