I'm writing a psychology paper and I wanted to get some other musicians' opinions about it.

Do you believe that the music you listen to has an influence in your lifestyle? (actions, emotions, friends, personality, etc.)

I don't know how much of the rap/hip-hop/techno demographics I'll get in a guitar forum, but all opinions and discussions are appreciated

Obviously yes. If someone says they like led zeppelin to me I immediately think we have nothing in common, will never bond in any way and I proceed to throw shoes at them.

I'm glad you like music then...
#13
personally, I believe that music is more a reflection of one's personality and emotions rather than a determining factor in them. I do believe that music can affect one's emotions on a small scale such as bringing someone out of a bad mood by listenening to happier music. But on a large scale, not so much.

Emotions.
I use music to help me with mine and to basically make sure I don't go out and kill someone on bad days.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
Let me in for a minute, you're not my life but I want you in it

lol but i write alot of songs and i get all of my inspiration from real life experiances and my emotions but you can only do it off of emotion because then it'd sound like;
sitting in the dark
depression sets in
knives in my hand
piercing vein
(i just thought of taht)
but it sounds better with and actual experiance like
laying in the bed alone
she left me
i lay dying the last breathes been taken
the damsel has left
the servant disgarded
left to his fate
burning interogations of the mind
LETTING HIM DIE
etc. sounds much better because more people can relate

I'd be more likely to consider that my life has influenced the music I listen to, rather than the other way around.
But I may not be in any position to comment objectively.

Yeah, all I do is interwebz every minute every day spamming the Pit.

By the way, has anyone ever found it strange that Gandalf( LotR) says 'Back to the Pit that spawned you' right before he dies?

Kensai, I'm tempted to sig your first post, haha. And I'd say emotions and/or relationships and interactions for me.
