Does music influences you emotionally?

This is the place for readers of poetry. Discuss poetry and literary art. You can also discuss music here, including lyrics. Also, you can discuss poets themselves, in addition to poetry.

Music does most when I am experiencing a significant amount of emotion such as anxiety, anger, sadness, happy, etc. If I am just in a car driving to the grocery store I would rather put on an audiobook or a Youtube video.

Yes! I actually have to be really careful about what music I'm exposed to regularly. Certain sad songs will completely ruin my day. For example, I absolutely can not listen to Mad World by Gary Jules. It makes me so sad!

I have a playlist that caters to what I feel everyday. I am very shy to express my emotions and music is one of the things that helps me vent/freely express what I feel.

I absolutely think music influences me emotionally. There are songs that bring up memories or speak to a current situation that I am going through and it greatly impacts me.

Absolutely. What I listen to is always based on my mood. When i am angry for example, I listen to heavy metal because it calms me down. My Autistic son is the same way. If he is having a meltdown and you put on any kind of heavy metal, he calms right down.

This reminds me of the Hans Christian Andersen quote, "Where words fail, music speaks."

Of course, always. But it also depends on the tone as well as the type of music.
