well thats a good question, and i have an answer but its tough to put into words. ill put it this way, without music, i probably wouldve commited suicide a long time ago.
There's people that "get" music and there's people that dont. you ever hear teenagers listening to rap and jibber jabber shi* , what meaning does it have ? nothing really its just a bunch of bullsh*t but then you hear someone playlist with a variety of music, that has actual lyrics, like a story to it. and it makes you feel certain feelings or reminds you of certain memmories, you can connect with it, and feel emotions just from hearing a sone because it has meaning to it. example, if i listened to gotta get that boom boom boom it does nothing for me however, if i listen to because of you by kelly clarkson i connect with the song and i cry, or jesus christ by brand new, that song can mean many different things to many different people but to me i cry when i hear it and feel spiritual , because its almost as if their singing about my relationship with god which is- well i dont know what it is because it hasnt been established and through the song their asking questions and saying i will die all alone, and it makes me feel so intense because ive never had a specific god or religion so what happens when i die, its like that i guess if it makes sense
