One thing I've noticed with me is that the kind of music I listen to at a given time often reflects how I'm feeling, like if I'm not feeling great I'll often listen to a ballad and might not want to listen to a more uptempo song, while if I'm in a really energetic mood I'll probably listen to a more upbeat and 'dancey' song. If I'm feeling so-so I'd want to listen to both which is probably best laugh.gif

Does the music you listen to reflect your mood? Discuss~

If I am feeling really happy then I will sometimes enhance this feeling even more with an array of bangers for sure. However if I am in a sad mood, I don't really listen to sad music as well. I prefer to wallow in self pity in silence because I think I would feel even worse otherwise!

If I am feeling kinda bleh, like waking up for Uni and still feeling tired, then I will definitely use music as a way to improve my mood also. All it takes is one euphoric song to come on shuffle while getting ready or walking to the bus stop (this could be the 'Macarena' - and wot) and it can make me feel great. Even better if shuffle is feeling really kind and gives me more than one 10/10 in a row.

General dance/EDM - Fun/thrill seeking mood
Pop - As above, but also fits into "standard" mood
Chill house/tropical - Relaxed state of mind or spirituality and love
Dubstep - Higher thrill seeking
Progressive house - Interesting one here, because it gives a kind of middle ground between thrill seeking and relaxed state of mind heart.gif
Owl City (because this guy deserves his own genre x tongue.gif ) - Any, considering how many genres he covers, but his "main" genre i.e. ATBAB and previous are what I would describe as the audible equivalent to antidepressents kink.gif I'd also go with the relaxed state of mind mood here also
Female rock (ATC, Paramore, TA to name a few) - Relaxed state, spirituality and love, antidepressants and positivities of life I guess tongue.gif
Male rock (Lawson, You Me At Six etc.) - Another "any mood" kind of genre for me I think happy.gif
"Joke" songs - Obvious one here, when I'm in a eccentric fun mood smile.gif

I'm definitely one of those who wallows with sad music if I'm not in a good mood laugh.gif I know it's not really logical because it's not gonna make me feel better to listen to depressing music if I feel down, but I always gravitate towards that sort of thing when I'm down. I do the same with good moods and upbeat music too though.

If I'm feeling bad I'll listen to something instantly forgettable (e.g classic, repetitive house etc) so I won't be reminded of that time.
