Might I put my two cents in? Yes? Thankee.
Music influences you more than people give it credit. Blues can make a person feel depressed, Energetic music more happy, Spike Jones head ache-y, and Tennessee Ernie Ford old. Its all the rhythm of it. You could have the most happy-go-lu----fortunate song in the world, but if you play it to the Funeral March, it sounds depressing. Jingle Bells in a slow melodramatic way is just sad. Not sure if anyone knows about this guy, Lord Vinheteiro. He does this several times.
The lyrics are basically the peppermint on the triple chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting. Most songs that you hear, the lyric don't even make sense. So why do the people eat it up? Because the heavy drum beat entices them. It feeds their desire, even though it may cause serious depression.
Wow. What I just typed made sense to me!
