Why is music so much more effective when it comes to emotions?

I know this isn't true for everyone but I LOVE music. When I was a kid I would deal with my anger by putting on headphones, blasting the music and singing at the top of my lungs. I haven't really listened to much music since I've had kids (besides "babyish songs") but last night I played some songs on YouTube and it felt so freeing. Why is that? I can't seem to put a finger on it.

  • I'm the exact same way, if I need to vent or calm down, I get in my car and drive and listen to music. I have it playing at work all the time and at home too, I adore the way a song can touch on exactly what you might be going through at that very moment and possibly help you get through something or help you heal.

  • I totally agree. Music expresses what you want to say for you sometimes.

  • Cuz music as art is an expression of emotions. At least it's supposed to be. Sometimes as long as you can shake your ass to it it's considered acceptable lol.
