    I like listening to a lot of music, I do every day. I just never understood why I like or prefer certain kinds of genres more than others. I'm in my twenties so I have been influenced to like certain genres like: Hip-Hop, RnB, Drum & Bass, Electronic etc. I do however, enjoy soothing music like lounge music. I especially admire the sound of a violin or piano or saxophone. I want to understand the psychology behind it. Why music "helps" with mood, or why we find inspiration with music. All that!
