    Does anyone think that listening a certain kind of music fuels whatever mood a person happens to be in? Like, for instance, anger. If you happen to be listening to a Rock Band (Disturbed maybe), and your in a bad mood, does it fuel that anger?

    Or if not anger, then does music fuel the usual status-quo feel good mood?


    Any opinions?

    Ah I'm just kidding. Although for me, if I am pissed off and listen to something aggresive like Disturbed or Pantera I can scream along and basically let the rage out. Then I feel better. Does that fit within your theory?

    I definitely feel more angry when I'm in a bad mood and Disturbed is playing, because dammit, don't I have any better CDs in the car, what the hell am I thinking?

    I'll listen to slower more mellow tunes when I'm feeling depressed, heavy songs when I'm mad at something or geared up about something, and Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" when I want to feel happy. Cause let's face it, that song is bad to make teh sex to, but it's too awesome to not dance about a little with.

    Any kind of music that doesn't reflect how I'm feeling emotionally at that point in time just doesn't grab my interest as well as something with a beat or a tune I can relate to.

    When I get all depressed, I listen to the blues. (of course) Any other mood; it's usually classic rock.

    Hell yes.

    Music is what I thrive on and as such, of course my moods are influenced by it, as is my choice of music depending on what mood I am in.

    Hell yes. When I'm having a crummy day like today, I like to listen to loud New Age or tribal music to get me feeling back in balance.

    Its better than throwing things.

    Not really, sometimes I feel like listening to metal, sometimes punk, and sometimes classic rock.

    It really has nothing to do with my mood.

    Yeah, that fits perfectly! ^_^ I do it sometimes myself (minus the screaming).

    I like listening to Interpol or Feist (yes, I said Feist) when I'm pissed or depressed.
