What role does music play within your life?

I have a deep appreciation for music and how it affects me. On any given day I am generally listening music from the time I get up, most of the way through the day and up until I am about ready to go to sleep. I listen when I am happy, when I am sad, and even when I just need noise in the background to break the silence.

When and why do you listen to music, and in what ways do you think it affects your life?

    • Oct 18 2011: I'm definitely the same way sometimes, I'll feel like I really want to listen to an artist for no reason whatsoever, and I'll listen to them for the rest of the day. Maybe it's just our subconscious picking a soundtrack for the moment.
