What is it about music that makes us want to get up and dance around? How does music take something that’s boring and make it fun and exciting? Why does the wrong music ruin a scene in a movie? I was thinking about all this when I stumbled upon an article about how music affects our emotions. The power of music to affect us is a key ingredient to my conference energizers, which in fact are singing energizers…
Music Affects Your Mood
Certain aromas and smells can take us back to a moment we experienced years ago – The scent of fall leaves in the air takes me right back to the front yard of the house I grew up in. Almost forgotten memories come rushing back as if I was just there. Music has that same visceral power. A song you associate with high school can make you think of an old friend, maybe even make you remember what they wore on your first date together. I couldn’t imagine watching this well-known video without the music as a powerful driver of the visuals and narrative.
