My choices of songs changed over the years. Now I'm focusing more in world music, like celtic, folk and hindu.
I wonder sometimes how this is so different from what I used to hear in the past, but then I use to think it's because of the fact that I'm also changing as a person. I feel I'm getting more reflexive and introspective, and this reflects in the songs I like to listen.
I like hard rock and some metal and it definitely relaxes me while some think it might do the opposite I am able to calm down plenty once I hear my favorite tunes.
Music is my tool to escape the daily hardships. It transfers me into another world. A place where I can choose, what exists and what not.
Let’s say I listen to something fairly energetic when I have a need to feel that way. It is a stimulant.
At the Moment I love to listen to mathcore and metal core, because it’s so strong and the rhythms help me get up in the morning. But I would never chain myself to just one Kind of Music. There is too much to explore, too much too feel.
Music soothes the soul and can be very relaxing. I enjoy listening to a variety of music, but especially 80's music.
I especially enjoy the funky beat of Jamiroquai, sometimes play it in the car, while driving.
There can be a wide variety of reasons I listen to the music I have. Most of the time it comes from the mood I am in at the moment in time. Indeed, my Spotify playlists have several themes specially designed for various moods. If I am in one of my battle the universe moods - there is a list for that, and if I am in a romantic one - I have a list covering such. A lot of my music comes from Celtic Woman back when Lisa Kelly was still with them, Taylor Davis (One of my all time favorite violinist), and epic-battle inspiring music from various movies: Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star Trek, Gladiator, and so forth. Usually, such music also comes into play depending on what I am writing at the time. If I am trying to write a battle scene; then very likely something with such music is playing. The same is true if I am writing in a Star Wars fanfic, or a romantic story… the music sets the mood, and makes it easier for me to focus my writing energy.
I mostly go with whatever is popular on the radio and when it phases out of the top 40 I am about tired of it as well. I'm not one to listen to the same thing over and over like some people do.
