Music is thought to be the first form of art to be born, and throughout the long history of human, it has proved to play an essential part in our lives. Hardly is there anyone who has never listened to a song. Hence, we all seem to owe many things to music.
Usually, people listen to music to entertain themselves. It is beyond any doubt that after hard working hours, music is the best 'medicine' for our tired brains, as it somewhat helps to eliminate stress and pressure. Maybe that is why music can be played everywhere; everyone, after working and studying, really needs music to refill their power.
A more powerful aspect of music is that it profoundly affects our sensation, or feelings. This can be seen from the roots of kinds of music. Rock music was created mostly to reflect anger, whereas ballads must have come out from romantic love stories, or from a painful heart. So, music is the reflection of our emotions. We listen to music when we are glad of sad, and it both cases, it influenced us. When feeling alone or upset, I only want to listen to my favourite songs and be drowned in it. Music, in this sense, can be a good friend, who gently heals our souls.
It is fair to consider music as 'chicken soup for the soul'. I cannot imagine how our world would go without music. Music, since its birth, has brought to life many real and immortal artistic values.
