    It's amazing how much music can help you though... there are some scientific studies that show how people who play music are better in math (generally). But even aside from that, it's nice how you can always find a song to match your mood

    I love music. Any kind at all, really.

    I also love live performances. Small concerts and festivals, where you know what you're seeing is a live performance. There's just something special about having someone perform for you in person like that, some special quality to the sound that I feel is lost when it's recorded.

    I think the ridiculous popularity of the iPod is a clear indication of how prevalent music is in most people's lives, and how important it is to them to have easy access to a wide range of it.

    For me, playing music soothes my troubled mind when I'm stressed.

    True, Kao. But what I am wondering about is the actual act of playing music or, in my case, singing all the time, not just listening to others perform. What does that act do for you, as opposed to hearing it? I find singing a folk song or a bluegrass song or an old time hymn, or just about any song, soothing to the soul. What do y'all think?

    The popularity isn't totally ridiculous, it is wonderful to be able to access that many songs so quickly and in such a small package. (not that I have one, I'm not that rich sadly) The other thing is the big ones store as much as a hard drive, so you can use it to back up your computer (my dad did that).

    Jakko - I think that the act is just expression, it's a way to express yourself (I know this sounds corny). It's also a way to be a part of the music, by singing along. Performing in front of people also tends to give a high on adrenaline (which is fun ).

    Sorry, Jakko. I actually knew that, it's just that I don't do much singing...

    In part that's because I'm not very good. I'm a passable soprano, but unfortunately that doesn't come up too often. I was in a choir once, and I really enjoyed the experience. I find it much more enjoyable to sing with a group of people than by myself, and not only because of my lack of skill. I really like it when everyone comes together, and produces something beautiful through group effort and harmonization. In my opinion, when singing, everything you do has to compliment what everyone else is doing. Some people sing better than others, and it's their role to make the group sound better as a whole (and do the solos).

    As for playing music, I don't actually play any instrument...I did teach myself how to play Greensleeves on the piano at a young age, however, so the desire to produce music is still there. I did enjoy it, and I can see how I would likely use it to relieve stress, or just to enjoy myself. (I really hope to have the time and money to learn how to really play the piano one day. Or some sort of stringed instrument, like a violin.)

    Edit - And I do sing when I'm happy, but typically not loudly unless I'm alone.

    To each his own, I guess. I don't think I am particularly good at singing myself, well, probably better than most people because I do it so often, but not because of any real talent. I just like singing when I am working, when I am on a walk, any time. Its really a good thing to do in the solitude of the soul...

    Yeah, learning to harmonize is really awesome. I was in a choir as an alto and it could just be the people. Music people are awesome and the choir trips are always the best... There is just somehting about being able to harmonize with people that is really cool.

    I don't think it matters if you are good or not, just that you enjoy it.

    Well...if you count random little sing-songs that aren't really songs, and random humming and musical noise-making, then yes, I sing all the time.

    But I save the real singing for when I'm with a group of people who are also singing, or when I'm by myself.
