Does your music taste change depending on your mood?


If I'm happy, I like happy music. I love The Beatles, for example. Then, when I'm feeling down, I like to listen to more acoustic music, like David Gray. It's not always the rule, because sometimes I can listen to absolutely anything, from one extreme to the other... So I'm interested to know, does your taste in music change depending on your mood? Who do you like to listen to in different situations?

    yeah, im the same, some people use music to change their mood, but unfortunately it doesnt work for me. If i hear a happy song, and I'm not particularly happy, it actually irritates me :P

    yeah, thats the thing though, personally I don't "seek out" sad music if I'm sad, it just happens to be the songs that my brain wants to listen to at the moment. The louder songs annoy me when I'm sad, and vice versa.

    I love that you love such a wide range of music. I love loads of different types too, and even through the ages. I love Elvis, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, The Monkees.. right upto QOTSA, Foos, Eagles of Death Metal, Slipknot, down to The Lumineers...

    True, some would say that happy music all the time would lighten their mood, if they were down!

    Its great that you enjoy lots of different types of music. I dont know much about hindi songs, but have heard a few Westernised Bollywood tunes, I don't know if they're similar? (I'm totally ignorant on the subject!)

    I agree, although personally I usually loop round to the same stuff over and over. I can probably count on two hands the amount of new bands I have added to my ipod over the last 2-3 years! Oops!

    yeah, I often play songs that relate to what I'm feeling at the mooment. Its quite sad, because for a moment you actually think the artist relates to you! hahaha

    That's actually quite interesting... I must admit the same, really when i think about it. The music i choose to listen to at a specific time is dependant on mood... but my CD collection always stays the same! Great way to look at it, thanks!

    ditto, as I mentioned in a previous comment, if I am in a bad mood, and hear a jolly song, it can really annoy me! weird!
