Music makes the world go round and that may just be the case as it is actually pretty hard to go through a day without having to listen to a single note or tune of a song. For many, music is just lyrics and notes composed into one amazing mess but music is more than that. We’ve been asked again and again why music is so special but it all boils down to one reason, music is everywhere and it serves so many purposes in our daily human lives.
People have asked us what the benefits of music are time and time again. While we could go through all of the reasons, we do not actually want to waste anyone’s precious hours in doing so. There are so many reasons why music is so important but there are a few reasons that are just too good to mention.
Let us start with the most basic first. Music helps us travel. We have heard that phrase countless times already. While music does not exactly move us from point A to point B, it does help us feel that the travel time is shorter than it really is. It is rare seeing a commuter without a pair of earphones nowadays and that is because everyone is so accustomed to listening to music while we are on the go.
Many would argue that watching a movie or a TV show while we are traveling is way better but honestly, it is a harder process. You would end up bumping other commuters endlessly.
Next up, music is our way of expression. Musicians and composers use music to express their joy, grief, and a slew of other emotions. If a musician or composer is really talented, we end up feeling the exact emotion they want to convey. However, one does not need to be a musician or a composer to express his feelings to the world. Not everyone has an ear for music, as they say.
Even something as simple as setting up a playlist allows a not-so-musically inclined person to express himself through music. Believe it or not, we can tell a lot about a person by checking out what kind of music he prefers. But of course, do not ever judge the album by the songs it has.
Last but most important is that music adds color to our lives. Imagine watching “Jaws” for the first time. Only this time around, the iconic thrilling piece that plays whenever Jaws is near would not play. What you get is a pretty dull moment. Sure, Jaws is still scary as heck but that accompanying piece was icing on top of a delectable and scary cake.
Without music, a lot of things will be a lot horrible. Video games, movies, commercials, and so many others more. The fact remains that music livens up anything it accompanies. Without it, everything else is just a bland slice of life.
Again, there is so much more that music does for us. Everything else listed above is just the tip of a humongous iceberg that is waiting to be seen.
