The Influence of Music: What Does Music Do For You?
Mumford & Sons
Music Incites Attitude
Almost every genre of music can arouse and emotion. Your favorite song can be like your favorite book because either one will excite your mind, which in turn moves emotion in more than one direction.
Tunes and lyrics bring motivation for people who want to sing or write their emotional expressions. Both mediums are very good for letting go of baggage, for expressing sentimentality, for healing minds, or waking up something in a person.
A melancholy mind can be influenced to let go of its saddened state by hearing melancholy songs. On a warm spring day, it is furthered by energetic and excitable tunes. With music and words, a mind can become more eager and emotions more enlightened. There is a lot of power in music and even more in a song’s lyrics and especially if you have had an experience related to the song's message or story. Sometimes, too, the very vibration in a song can release a form of stress.
I cannot think of one emotion or attitude that is not expressed in song. Songs can calm, restore and comfort the mind. Imagine how the radio is actually free medicine. If a songwriter has persuaded a person emotionally with a particular tune and lyrics, and it has served a meaningful purpose, then the listener repeats the song by searing the lyrics on the internet, purchasing the song, and then memorizing the lyrics.
Music is the creative expression of love and harmony, which is evidenced by historical and contemporary composers with symphony productions. Musicians standing on a street corner more than likely draw a crowd. They can play their instruments and sing their hearts out and cause the crowd to forget negative energy previously entertaining their minds. It arouses the good in a person or raises it to a higher level of contentment.
Music, either by way of voice or instrument or nature, clearly moves the mind, the heart and the soul. Music can either carry a tune or carry a message. As long as the end result is positive, I hope the effects reverberate.
