As a general rule, we all love listening to music, and when we listen to music it has an impact on our emotions.
Think of a world without music, or at least sound! We can argue that our environment provides us with sound and often when you stop and listen it can be pleasurable in the right circumstances. The sound of waves crashing on the shore, the sound of leaves rustling in the forest, or even the sound of city traffic.
Sound sets the background to our daily lives, but wherever we go there is music. Whether it be on the radio, in the car, at the shopping centre, at the movies, in commercials, having a party, on a TV advertisement or simply to relax at home with a glass of wine it is pretty clear that music plays an important part in our lives.
We all have a preference to a particular type of music, but it provides us with many emotions and feelings whatever the genre that we prefer. If you are looking to cheer yourself up, then how many times have you put that favourite CD on yours? How many times have you found yourself singing along to a great song in the car?
Music has this ability to create an atmosphere to make us happy and create feelings. So, next time you find yourself singing or humming along to song whilst you are shopping and don’t know why, it’s because we connect with the feelings that sound and music creates.
