35 # Cue Card (Favorite Music)

Describe your favorite music

You should say:

  • What kind of music do you like
  • When do you listen to it
  • How does it change your mood

and explain whether it changed your life too.


Music, as one might imagine, comes in handy as a coping mechanism and a means to calm me. My taste in almost everything is vast and mercurial, my taste in music is much the same. I get bored quickly, sometimes of people, sometimes of particular songs, sometimes I get bored of certain singers and, quite often, I get bored of entire genres. As a result, I have a fondness for a multitude of music types. At the moment, I am enthralled with indie music, instrumental music as well as a bit of pop. I am often at a loss for words and, quite truthfully, knowledge so I am never really sure about classifying the music I listen to into specific genres. I do seem to have a penchant for melodic music and a particular dislike for the trending, senseless excuse for music that the youth listens to these days. I usually listen to music when I am alone, so as to pay more attention to what the songs entail as well listening with the full effect of uninterrupted sound. At times, it calms my inner turmoil and, at other times, it gives voice to them. Suffice it to say, my mood may intensify because of my music but it never truly depends on it, it's human logic after all. In my opinion, what we're drawn to says a lot about us.

Thank you.
