Music & Your Mental State
I was thinking the other day that our taste in music is very revealing of our state of mind. As I have changed over the past 5 years from being sad and depressed to being happy my taste in music has also completely changed.
My 2 favourite bands as a teen were Tool and the Smashing Pumpkins. These bands will always hold a special place in my heart for they represent that time in my life. And yet its very rare that I will listen them these days. My current state of mind is not longer represented by Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. And I must have bought the last Tool album 10,000 Days out of loyalty because I have only listened to it once it about 3 months. I did not connect with it.
