    ^ This exactly.
    It can happen with entire albums as well. It has only happened a couple of times with an entire album, but when the whole thing just fits together... *sigh* It's bliss.

    Euphoria from listening to music? Yes, all the time.

    Euphoria from playing music? A High tens times better than simply listening..as you actually become the music and can feel its rhythm inside you.

But the study was done on people who have musical training--I don't have any (I wish I did).

    Anyone else experience this?
    Musical notes mimic the feeling of real emotions. This is why you can manipulate your own emotions with music. Hardcore rap when you need to feel full of vim and vigor. Classical when you need to relax. Electronic when you need to get the house clean.

Music is so powerful to me, too, but maybe not as intensely physical as some are describing.

    Really good article. I've got another one around here somewhere (digging in my article pile)...

    Oh, come on--you're not serious, are you?

    I better stay away from playing then 'cause with what I feel, I'd keel over dead from playing.

    I'd end up like that physician who after being struck by lightning, can't stop playing the piano.

    you belong in a tree. because you're a nut.

    Yes I was being serious.

    Have you ever played music for people?

    Playing music with other people sometimes doesn't work out so well.

    But other times, when you and the other people "click" musically, then it's amazing. You get into this groove and you know what they're feeling just like you're feeling.

    What a compliment!!!!

    I know you were being serious--I just can't imagine what that experience must be like....

    No, I've never played music for people. I have no musical training and I cannot play any instruments *wistful envy insert here*.

    What you describe sounds...oh, I lack words! What--maybe a little frightening? I was listening to some music in the wee hours of the morning and I had to shut it off because I was reacting so intensely to it.

    I love to spend time analyzing the different sounds and instruments and how they weave together or run parallel to each other. Hell, I just love getting high off of it.

    I love to dance, too, but my RA puts a bit of a crimp in that at times.

    it depends on the music, but yes.

    Music affects me very much so. I got the impression this happens to most people in varying degrees, so that it shocks me when I meet people who aren't much affected by music at all (yeah, these people exist).
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)
