Songs give me mixed emotions

These days I have been binge listening to sad/slow songs more on the depressed side. Does anyone go through that or is that just me being weird?

Hey @gittypoo, welcome to ReachOut! Smiley Happy


I think you raise a very interesting point about the emotional impact of music. There is a lot of research about how different songs impact people's emotions and general wellbeing in many different ways, and different people react to the same music differently!


I don't think it's weird to listen to sad or slow songs, and it's something I do sometimes as well. How do you feel after listening to these songs? Heart


Hope to see you around the forums Smiley Happy

Hi @gittypoo !
Welcome to RO Smiley Happy
I definitely have gone through phases like this!
Otherwise has the music been affected you or your mood has drawn you to this kind of music?
I agree with @mrmusic , music can have a big emotional impact!

Re: Songs give me mixed emotions

Hey @gittypoo, How are you doing?


I was just wondering if there was a particular reason you were listening to that type of music. Although there's nothing weird about that at all. You can't help the sort of music you're feeling. I often find sad music helps me just to think more clearly. It may just be good to be sure the music isn't making you feel bad if it is.
