Music preferences

Music changes as our feelings change.

Have you ever noticed that as your mood changes, your music tastes/preferences change? I am sure most of you have noticed that at some point in your life. Isn't it strange how our tastes change over time and based on our moods?

For example, when I was a child, I used to like children's music, then later I started liking 80's pop rock and slow rock songs. I also enjoyed old 40s-60s music. In my teens I continued to enjoy the 80s music, but at the same time, I started to like 90's music, 80s hip hop and world music. I also enjoyed western classical music and choral music as I was in the choir in high school.

In my 20s, I started liking early techno style music which was mostly dance type music. I started enjoying more modern day hip hop. I also started to listen to alternative music and hard rock. These were genres that were new and interesting for me.

Now in my 30s, I listen to all of the music I used to listen to and am still trying to find out new music to listen to. I don't know about you, but when I am trying to study, I either need complete silence or classical/symphony music to help me think and be calm. When I am driving to my parents (road trip- 10.5 hours away from here), I listen to various types of music from fast to slow, from 50 and 60s music to hip hop to metal. It helps me stay awake and not get sidetracked.

What kinds of music do you enjoy listening to? Do you have specific music moods like I do? Comments are welcomed! I'd love to hear what you listen to and when.

      Yes, I have heard that if one is pregnant and she plays various classical types of music for the baby, the baby will be extremely intelligent. I will have to look into those studies, as I am very interested in learning more. Where can I find them RedElf?
