Music has always been a big part of my life
Since childhood I've been exposed to a wide variety of genres of music
Much of it rooted in live performance..
My love of great song writing stems from the traditional storytelling in such genres as bluegrass,jazz,blues and folk music. Im also a fan of instrumental and orchestra music
Music is as embedded in me as deeply as the sun and moon are to you earthlings :)

Music is everything to me... I love metal. And when I'm in a horrible mood, I just put on my favorite band's songs and I instantly feel better and just wanna sit there and stare at a wall while I focus on the lyrics and vibe of it. It hypnotizes me and makes me happy(: I don't know how to explain it.

I need music to sleep- I wear my earbuds all night listening to my music while I sleep. It helps with the snoring husband and cat. :0)

I understand, I have my laptop going 24/7. If I wake up in the night I am asleep again before the next song ends approximately 3 to 8 minutes. I leave my music on all day for my dog so she feels not so alone. If she could sing she would know every word to approximately a thousand songs. Lol.

Kaz, one of the things disco that damaged the musicians' profession was bring DJs to the bars and end the need for live bands. My husband laments this change a lot!

I like a lot of different types of music even old music from WW2 which would be used for happy or just in the mood or I just play a song that I felt like playing :)

Yes some days one song repeated is all that's needed to bring you to a relaxed mode. Other days a whole playlist to choose out of is the perfect combination

After my brain is finished eating information all day long, music is like dessert.....rich, creamy and soothing notes to relax away the day.

There's always a tune in my head and has been as far back as I can remember. I love the music of many genres and can't imagine a life without it.
I once worked with a guy who didn't like music, had never wondered as he sat under a starry sky, and found no magic in a sunset. I'd hate that.

Music is life.
Even without a stereo or instruments, music is everywhere. All you need to do is listen.
The wind soaring through the mountains and trees is music that speaks to my deepest soul......then again a good Pink Floyd instrumental can do do as well. They both transport me to a peaceful state.
Music affects your mood.
Music helps many to get work done more efficiently --- I listen to it all day long at work.

Music is important to me. It soothes me when I'm sad. It inspires with my painting or making things. It absolutely is essential for house cleaning! That's when the old rock and roll comes on LOUD! I dance my way through it. I can't drive without it. Did I mention how important music is to me??! Lol seriously , how do some make it without it in their lives? Can't imagine.

Ravin, thanks for answering. So your a talented Artist. I would love to be able to paint. To Bring that plain canvas to life with all the rich colors & textures must make you feel so empowered. If I could paint my free flowing layers of clothes would spread over on to the canvas.
Back to the question now. I agree Music does all you say & more. It's the inspiration to many in life. Some songs become our anthems for our philosophies in & of life. Like "girls just want to have fun" and yes rocking with the vacume is a personal relationship. My dyson just moves with my grooves. Lol.

Lol. I'm not really that kind of painter, although I dabble a bit. I'm a decorative painter. I just finished a video arcade recently. Fun stuff. Sorry to take so long answering. I do love dancing with my mop! I think it loves me! Lol

Music is always playing if I'm there. However, can't listen to it if I'm grieving or sad--just brings me to desperate tears. If I'm happy--watch out!
