Very interesting indeed. You know, there are now developments where scientists entertain the possibility that music developed before language developed, as a communications means, and that music became the agent to promote development of language.

I just got Daniel Levitin's latest book from Amazon, "The world in six songs". Can't wait to start to read it!
(His earlier book, "This is your brain on music" made him famous).

Music has always been quite important to me. I half-joke with friends: "Without music I would die." There may be a sliver of truth to that after all! I've noticed that I sometimes get depressed if I can't/don't listen to music for an extended period (even just a few days).

Music makes the world go 'round,so build up your projects,and crank the tunes!

This is why movie composers get the big bucks! They are the ones who tell us how to feel during a scene, not the actors or writers or directors. (I exagerate a little). Kubrick was a master at using music. He knew he could change the feeling of a scene completely with it. Clockwork Orange has some excellent examples.

Yes, good points!

BTW, you can say that you listen to music depending on your mood, but it works also the other way around: music can change your mood. I suspect that unconsiously we listen to music with the aim to lift up our mood!
