There is something about music, something I can’t put my finger on, that makes music so special. The many different genres allow for everyone to find something for them; it serves as an escape, a safe haven; it’s the way to a good morning or the best hype up for a night out with your friends. Whatever it is, music is still uniquely important in everybody’s lives. What is it for you? It is something that I genuinely wonder; what is it about music that makes people tick?

For me, it’s the way someone’s mood can instantly change from song to song; it’s how a single song can bring back that one memory that you so deeply cherish or remind you of that one person. Music is so strong it can invoke just about any feeling on a person and no one forces or questions it, it just happens.

It’s the way you can walk around with your earphones on and you have the luxury of your own personal mind bubble; you block out the world and, in return, it is just you in your mind with your favorite sounds enveloping your every thought. It’s your own personal bliss, even if it’s just for a couple of minutes. Maybe for someone it's not about listening to music, but actually playing it; being able to produce someone else's escape by playing that one instrument they adore. Whether it's the drums, a cello, or their voice, it still has the same effect.

Music is the haven you can look for when you feel like you have no one else to turn to. But that’s the beauty of it, I guess. For whatever reason music has a special place in your heart, I hope that you continue to cherish it the way that I do, that you get those concert/symphony/opera tickets, that you enjoy those events and I hope that those days become memories that later on get invoked by listening to that one song.
