So. I don't really know where to start here. Are any of you people emotionally connected to music, or do you just listen to it because it sounds good? Music is purely emotional for me. I listen to the lyrics of every song. My favorite songs are always my favorites because the lyrics and music are so incredibly awesome to me, and they generally mean something. I listen to all styles of music for my different moods. I have some songs that I have a hard time listening to simply because they make me sad - and it's not even because the lyrics are sad, it's because the song was popular at a period of time where something sad was happening in my life, and I heard it a million times on the radio or whatever, so therefore every time I hear the song, I get sad... even though it may not relate to my life at all. Like, right now, I have a hard time listening to "Don't Matter" by Akon... and this is why. A few months ago, I met this amazing guy at work. He was totally hotter than shit, in every way possible. He was amazing. Funny, witty, intelligent... I had a crush on him for quite a while, and then he asked me out on a date. I was totally on cloud 274... quite a bit higher than cloud 9. :tongue: I was in awe, and I was excited beyond anything I had ever experienced with a guy. We went on a date on March 3rd... the date was amazing. He ended up spending the night at my house, which does NOT ever happen for me, especially on a first date! Usually, no matter how much I like a guy, things aren't going THAT well... ya know? So anyway, on our date, the song came on the radio in the car and he told me how much he absolutely loved Akon, and how this was one of his favorite songs. I totally liked it too, it was the first time I had heard it. So anyway... date goes swimmingly, and then the next day I took him home and he said we'd have to go out again soon. Later that day is when I shaved my head for Locks of Love. He lost all interest in me after he found out. Ever since then, I can't listen to this song without thinking of him... I get angry at what he did, sad because I miss him, and I sometimes even question whether or not I should've shaved my head, which is stupid, because I know he's just a shallow jerk and that I did something amazing by shaving my head. But, that's just an example of my connection to music - sorry to ramble. Do any of you feel this way as well, on a regular basis? Music is a constant in my life... it's constantly on somewhere... in my room, in my car... I always listen to music. I don't know what I'd do without it!
