    How does music motivate you?

    Music affects me in different ways. Music such as Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Keane and so forth relaxes me, it soothes my spirit so to speak.

    Music such as Red, Breaking Benjamin, Evanescence, etc. often encourages my more creative side in the fantasy/sci-fi aspect, often encourages me to write.

    Trance/House/Electronica (whatever you want to call it) can spark that same creative side but in a slightly different way I suppose. Often it's a mixture of the top two answers of mine.

    Country music and rap music have the same affect on me and that would be a feeling of being hyper or funny. I get energized, the thing with these genres are is that I get bored with them very fast.

    Music of all types is a core part of my being. I can play music to change my mood or outlook in a heartbeat. I'm a trained classical pianist, so often my emotions are outlet as I play the piano. Music motivates me to do chores, calm down after a stressful day, clears up the blues in a heartbeat, and so on. I can't imagine not having music of all types in my life.

    Music is amazing when you think about it all those musicians twanging/banging/tapping/singing away, & all those instruments vibrating at different frequencies/notes just so we can hear any particular song..I'm a massive fan of listening to music, but don't recommend listening to music whilst doing other things..I only listen to music for the sake of listening to music, & that's when your'l appreciate it more..I only listen to music that motivates me on the subject of life, & so stick to mainly: Richard Ashcroft/The Who/The Stones/2Pac/DMX/Foo Fighters/John Lennon & Bob Marley..I don't have time for today's music, & could vomit at the thought of having to listen to pop music!lol..So if i need a bit of motivating I'll play a few of my favorite songs about life, & once one of my favorite Artists have reminded me what i should be doing i then have to go & do it!lol....It really is amazing how music has helped & motivated me, as Iv'e gone from listening to DMX's song called Angel most days, to now listening to John Lennons We are here....The first song is about life's struggles, & the second is about becoming enlightened..The first one was how i felt for years, & the second one is how i feel now..It's almost as if those songs we're written for me or by me, which they weren't obviously they were just clues for me to find.

    I spent many years in radio and sometimes during working hours, I had to listen to music that wasn’t my choice. Now I listen to only what appeals to me. I’m not sure about the word “motivate”. If I’m doing housework, I love invigorating music like Pachabel’s Canon or Creedence Clearwater, or anything by John Fogarty motivates me and keeps my energy up. Playful moments include Led Zepplin or Robert Plant or the Rolling Stones (that dates me for sure). I really love soft meditation music for quiet moments or to help me to go to sleep -- after a long day of motivation, that is.
