I wrote this article after the one with 25 songs that boost my energy because I’ve said to myself that I should be vulnerable and also share with people 25 songs that make me cry. Just like the previous article, I didn’t care about genres or the tracks’ release date. It’s all about feelings and what these songs make me feel because they all trigger something from my past and access some of my traumas and fears. That’s why they make me emotional, you know…music is therapy.
In music, active listening refers to the conscious choice to focus on a piece of music undisturbed by other stimuli. In daily life, you may use music as background texture, but when you eliminate distractions and focus your attention on the music, you shift into active listening. I’m an active listener, so music makes me feel in some way. Active listening is the key to developing a good musical ear. Considering that I like to sing, that helped me a lot. However, since I was a kid I’ve searched for meaning in basically, anything. That’s just how I am. I like to do things in a conscious way.
