Music for the soul

Well, I can begin with some random statistics to show how it is scientifically proven that music is important in our life and then give you an example of one of the experiments that were carried on by the scientists wherein they took two plants and one of them was made to hear soothing music and other wasn’t, so the one was hearing music grew fast and healthy and other didn’t. Meh. Too mainstream. Let’s do something different.

Remember the time when you were sad or depressed? Probably because you went through a breakup or had a fight with your friend or lost someone. What did you do? Whom did you turn to when no was there to listen to you what you had  to say? Linkin Park, Eminen, Imagine Dragons, etc and got through your pain through their melodies.

Remember the time when you were going to play in a state level sport or going to appear for some very important exam and you plugged in your earphones and heard some crazy, insane rock songs that helped you gain confidence and pushed you a bit which took away the fear of losing or failure and you performed exceptionally well?

And then sometimes you just hear it because you want to. While travelling or maybe just to pass your time.

This is how important music is for us. Take out music from any of those moments and you would have been a different person today. Believe it or not, music shapes our personalities, makes us who we are. It defines us. We don’t need some random experiment carried out by scientists under controlled conditions to prove it when we ourselves are the proof of how music shape us to realise its importance. All we need to do is, listen to some more and each time you do, just ask yourselves what decision you would’ve taken if you didn’t hear to music in that exact moment and the proof will be staring at you right in your face.
