I don’t know about you, the music I listen to completely depends on the mood I’m in. When I’m happy and things are going great in life you can bet my radio is planing non-stop country music. Country is also my go-to when I don’t know what I want to listen to. It’s really the bread and butter of my musical taste.
When I’m exercising or trying to get pumped up for something fun, I’m usually listening to top 40 or alternative. One Republic, The Script, Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons…you get the idea.
But when I’m sad, angry or down, the only thing you will find me listening to is very dark, heavy piano’d music. Read: Evanescence. There is something about their music that calms me and I relate to. The heavy piano really hits me deep in my soul and after a few songs, or sometimes the entire album, I find myself feeling some relief. It’s like I am able to release the negativity through the music.
Lately I’ve been listening to Evanescence A LOT! But country is starting to seep back in and I’m really feeling hopeful that soon enough I can retire my moody music for a long time!
