Does music really affect our mood or we adapt to it?

    Music as we all know, is the key to our soul. Some have gone further to say music is the controller of our minds, but we really don't know how true that is. Everybody has a reason to listen to music, it might be your present mood, place where you are, and a lot more.
    Music, as we all know is everywhere in the world, there's music under the sea(Lol), there's music in the air, there's probably music beneath the earth, what i'm trying to say is music is infinite, so I'll just jump straight to the point. I really want to know how music connects with our moods and soul.

    Music does not only change your disposition, but it can also alter your future mood as well. Even if you turn that music that you listened to can significantly change your brain waves. That mean, a positive mood for the hours to come. After all, music can change your mood in an instant and make a gray day explode with color. Music is part of our lives, you can actually feel it as soon as the music plays.

    Music can affect your mood in many ways. This is because of the rhythm and tone that we hear when we listen to music. When we listen to the rhythm, our heart actually begins to synch with it. A slow heartbeat with a strong diastolic pressure tells our brain that something sad or depressing is occurring. Listening to your favorite music every day can somehow actually affect your personality.

    Music really affect my mood. In times that I feel stress I turn on my playlist and start listening to music.

    I think music definitely affects mood. That's why so many people will listen to classical music when studying. It has that effect to really help you focus and hone in. I used to love listening to piano covers when I was doing schoolwork. Now, I've adapted to being able to focus with any music, and it does just generally put me in a better mood. If I do work without music, it's just meh. If I do with music, I'm in a way better mood.

    Personally music affects my mood. If I am happy and I listen to sad music I will be automatically sad and vice versa

    I think it works both ways. Music definitely can affect my mood (usually positively) -- if I'm happy and listen to a happy song, I keep riding off that energy. If i'm happy and listen to a sad song, it mellows me out and usually makes me more introspective. In that sense, I do believe we sometimes subconsciously adapt to the moods of the music we listen to. I'd be interested to read any scientific studies on this though! Super interesting question.
