    Does occur from time to time; depends on the song, and if there's an emotional connection to it.

    Case in point, can't listen to this without a wave of coolness over the body and just immediately relaxing into a calm bliss.

    Other songs can create immediate changes in mood and temperament as well; from anger to grief.

    Euphoria depends on the song, overall, but it can drastically change ones' perceptions I've found.

    Some people are likely far more attuned to such than others though.

    Some songs I can't listen to without crying, while other people I'm sure wouldn't feel much of anything. Guess it's all relative to the individual, really.

    Not with just any music but with the right music definitely yes.

    The next step in the process of letting the music carry you would be dancing (where you hand over the control over your body)

    The thing is that while there is music that makes me euphoric or hypnotizes me, there is also music that tears ma apart. It´s like taking different drugs with different effects. Since you mentioned depression, this might be something to consider. Or does music always have the same (positive, euphoric) effect on you?

    I have some songs on my itunes that I've never listened to before.

    As soon as something special plays. I KNOW I will fall in love with this song in the first 10 seconds. If it's one of those songs, I will forever have it on my mp3 player.

    There are some songs that make you FEEL SOMETHING, maybe even share the same exact feeling that someone else felt listening to it. Maybe even feel the same pain, joy, or sorrow the artist felt creating it....

    Music is a powerful thing, it is food for your soul, it is what keeps me going through a lot of my life. SO, to feel euphoric to some tunes I absolutely natural.

    If a song or piece really captures my attention, I'll replay it multiple times. But if there's a dopamine hit, it's more to do with what the piece represents to me instead of the piece itself.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Yes. All the time. I only actively listen to music that makes me happy, inspired, emotional etc.

    Do you associate sound with colors?
    It's called synesthesia. It's when one or more senses are linked.
    It's a neurological phenomena that occurs in a small percentage of the population.

    Do you also feel incredibly bad, like physically freaking awful from listening to some sorts of music?
    There are a few things I can't stand, nu-metal is one of those things.
    I really have to turn it off or leave the room.
    Well, sometimes there is no alternative but to endure, and then I try to zone out.

    I associate lots of different sounds with colors. It's like my imagination is going in a Fantasia style mode whenever I listen to music. Strings sound tan to me, oboe sounds grey, square lead synth is red, sawtooth is yellow, choir pads sound pink and blue with hints of lavender. If a song is written in C-sharp minor, for instance, it seems more of an antique brass color. E-minor sounds green to me. B-flat major is blue. A-minor is a very deep shade of red.

It certainly doesn't happen with every song.
    This is exactly what I experience.

    It seems that most people aren't much affected by music. I have speculated or wondered if certain types on average may be more influenced in this way (like Ni or Fi dom).When is the last time you met an ISTJ, ESTJ or ENFP that's just really into music, for example.

    Nothing like trying to use type to explain everything

    Not with music but with smells.

    Yes. I've listened to music and I've had to turn it off or get away because it felt like blows.

    One odd thing is that I cannot use mood to really change my mood. I will listen to music that matches my mood. If I try to listen to something outside my mood zone, it feels unnatural. The euphoric reaction is constant; it will happen no matter how many times I listen to that particular song that triggers the reaction. Chills...oh, hell--it's like taking a hit. It usually lasts for a while after I listen to the song.

    I mentioned in another thread that I think of music as the highway in and out of the subconscious. As much as I love my books, reading, and photography, I could live without my sight. Losing my hearing would send me into a suicidal depression. No music, no life.

    Lol, I guess....but my favorite bands tend to be quite depressive (cheery music can go fuck itself anyway).....which would explain quite a lot. Instead of euphoria, I get a not-unpleasant feeling...that isn't quite that of joy either.

    I've become mindful of this. Quality layered upbeat music in genres that appeal to me....is very very rare though. I tend to go for deep...and deep rarely has nice things to say.

    I went to see a Prom in London 5 days ago...Berlin Philharmonic...one of the best orchestras in the world. They were playing Mahler's 1st Symphony. By the triumphant end it felt like I had been to a good comedy gig because my face hurt from smiling so much. It's a feeling of elation that you can't describe to someone who has never experienced it. I don't get this same feeling if I listened to a song with good lyrics but no musical interest.

    I have a friend (who I think is INTP) who doesn't see any need for music in the world. He just doesn't listen to it. I feel for people like that...people who get no joy from one of the most ubiquitous sources of entertainment we have available to us.
