    so does that mean your life is kinda like musical chairs?

    when the music stops, game over? <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt; <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt; <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt; <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt; <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt;

    actually...

    music is what makes life liveable. it helps us remember the good times and the bad times. it allows us to speak our minds when we can't. it takes us away and gives our minds new places to do. it's something most of us, just like you jed, can't live without.

    or at least that's how it's marketed. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Music expresses our feelings in a way that words never can.

    This is the first day of the rest of your life.

    My friends are always surprised to learn that music isn't my life. Because I'm in a 'scene' that is 100% based around music, that means most people are obsessed with it, that's all they really care about. I like the music a lot, but I'm more interested in politics and activism.

    An eye for an eye makes the world blind.

    what makes life liveable is those good souls starsailor were singing about <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt; the friends we have, the people who we love and who love us. but i do have to agree with:

    So what about bringing back memories, as Fran Healy wrote in Slide Show?

    Personally, I kind of agree with Jed. Music is my memories, my hopes, my fears. It can help my mood and change them. A single song can have such an impact.

    Wouldn't say it IS my life, just my choice of music REFLECTS my life.

    Music can make life make sense. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    (well, depends on the type of music, for this one I was thinking some classical pieces, but for the other post of mine anything'll work!)

    This is the first day of the rest of your life.

    Music is my life. It takes up so much of my time my gf gets jealous. Half my mates are quality DJ's and music is everything to them as well. To me it's been a way of life since I was about 14. Working all week, just counting down the days till friday. Then off to an event for one of the numerous best nights of my life. It never gets boring. Hardcore which is my style of preference is all about inducing emotion. I agree that music can change you're mood. If it didn't why would we listen to it.
