When I go to listen to music it all depends on my mood to what I listen to. If I'm excited for something I listen to fun, upbeat music that I can dance all crazy like to but if I'm sad or bored I would listen to Taylor Swift or someone along the lines.
Music can also cheer us up sometimes aswell, if we are sad and our favourite song is on the tele your mood is just automatically lifted.
Music also has the ability to stop those awkward silence moments we all tend to get in the car on long journeys with our parents or if you're in the car with someone you don't particularly like the only way to get away is pop in your headphones and play the music as loud as you can so it blocks out the person's voice.
Music keeps alot of us going, I personally can't go a day without listening to music on the tele or my ipod even though it annoys my parents that it's either too loud or " I'm going to break the Sky box if I don't stop flicking from one music channel to another".
