What's Up Wednesday - Music

What do you listen to? How does music make you feel?

This article, Music Give Brain Natural Buzz , talks about how listening to music triggers the release of dopamine in the brain.

I can only describe my musical taste as eclectic. I grew up in a house where we were either listening to music or watching sports. My dad listened to Opera (mostly while cooking), Jazz and Blues. My mom loved Dixieland, Mama & Papas, Dionne Warwick, Johnny Mathis, Harry Conick, Jr., Rod Stewart and Sinatra. And, they both enjoyed Broadway musicals.

I love it all. Right now I am listening to Elton John, BeeGees and Rod Stewart CD's as I work. Music does make me feel good, I seem to be better focused and just generally am in a better mood!

What are you listening to? And how does music make you feel?

For the longest time, I have enjoyed Classical music. Lately, I have been listening to Bach, Handel and Vivaldi. All three of these composers wrote choral music, along with instrumental pieces. Choral music involves choirs and orchestras. The sound of the human voice, sung together with different pitches in harmony, is what is very soothing to me and I find myself entering into the realm of a relaxing state of mind.

That does sound very relaxing! You have inspired me to change my station for the afternoon!

Thanks for sharing!

Looking forward to hearing others musical tastes!
