1. Music Makes Life Livable.

Music has healing powers. It can soothe the soul, body, and mind. Whether you're dealing with a broken heart, a bad day at work, or you're just tired of the world, you can always be healed by music. Maybe it will cause you to have a good cry, to sing along, or maybe it'll just make you want to dance to burn off steam, either way, music has the power to heal the soul in a way nothing else can. Stress will begin to melt away and suddenly your mood will be better because you are thinking about something else for the moment.

We should all take a moment to thank earphones for helping us to ignore all the stupid people around us.

2. Music Is Portable.

Music can be enjoyed pretty much anywhere, almost any time. It can be enjoyed in the car, online, and even on our phones. Whenever it's needed, music is always there for your enjoyment.

My favorite way of listening is online (via Android) while wearing my wireless earbuds. This is my favorite method of listening to music, because it makes the bass sound incredible and the lyrics come out clear.

There are aspects of memory that are remembered implicity, that is, outside of consciousness and [Music is something that activates this].

— Robert Snyder, composer

3. Music Triggers Memories.

Recent studies have concluded that music is very beneficial for patients with dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Research suggests that certain songs can open neuro-pathways that can help patients remember people, places, and/or events. Listening to and processing music uses parts of our brains that are connected to emotion and creativity. As a result, it might also help improve our memories.

Music is like a dream. One that I cannot hear.

— Ludwig van Beethoven

4. Music Is Magical.

Listening to or playing music can release dopamine, which is a chemical in the brain that helps a person feel happier. This can distract someone from something uncomfortable. For example, the dopamine released while listening to music can make it easier to exercise or work. Music also releases endorphins that relieve physical and psychological pain. Music can also increase antibodies, which boost the immune system and lower stress hormones. Music has also been proven to reduce recovery time after surgery.

Music is the shorthand of emotion.

— Leo Tolstoy

5. Music Will Always Evolve and Change.

As time goes on, the lines between different music genres are becoming blurred. For example, when rock music was first introduced, there was no such thing as rap or dubstep. Now, modern rock music is mixing all of these elements together, creating completely new types of music.

Music is always evolving and changing with the times. Since most people enjoy of variety of music genres, music must continue to evolve to compensate for people's desires. Music will always change and will always become better.

If music be the food of love, play on.

— William Shakespeare

6. Songs and Lyrics Can Mean so Much.

Certain songs describe our personal experiences so perfectly that we can't help but be overcome with emotion. Knowing that someone else has been through a similar emotional challenge can help us feel better about ourselves. Everyone has a list of go to songs that seem to define their lives. Music reminds us about shared humanity.

Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.

— Confucius

7. Music Is Medicine.

Scientific researchers are actually exploring how music therapy can improve health outcomes among a variety of patient populations. These populations include premature infants and people with depression and Parkinson’s disease. Studying music therapy may help to change medicine for the better.

Music is my higher power.

— Oliver James

8. Music Is an Expression of a Person.

In a sense, the music we listen to defines us. So, if someone listens to angry music all of the time, they are probably a very angry person. If a person listens to country music all of the time, they are probably going to wear a cowboy or cowgirl hat. This is a way of stereotyping a person (in a positive way), but it's usually true.

Music is an expression of one's personality. What we listen to helps to describe who we are and how we feel. The type of music a person choses to listen to says a lot about their emotional state.

Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.

— Frank Zappa

9. Music Is an Escape.

Music is a method of escape, like time travel or shapeshifting. Music makes us feel that someone else understands our happiness, sadness, rage, fear, envy, etc. Whatever the emotion is that we need to feel, or escape from, music is always there to help.

Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.

— Ludwig van Beethoven

10. Music Is a Universal Language.

Animals, plants, and humans can all enjoy music! Animals make and listen to music for mating purposes, migratory purposes, and even for hunting. It is a proven fact that certain types of music can help a plant to grow and flowers to bloom. Humans play certain songs to other people to express sentiments that may be hard for them to say directly. Because it is a type of emotional language, music can be understood by everyone. How amazing is that?!

An Example of Soulful Music

Why Music Is the Most Important Form of Art

Music is formally defined as the art of combining vocal and or instrumental sounds together to create expressions. These include our emotional reactions. Music can describe feelings and thoughts that many people have, but they cannot express. The word music is actually a noun that means musica in Latin and originated from the Greek word muse. The word music has synonyms like melody, harmony, and song. Music is a natural tool because it is a universal form of communication. When animals sing their songs to one another, this is music used for communicating and even mating. Humans use music for many different reasons, such as entertainment or for exercising.

Music has many great uses. In fact, music is even beneficial to a person's health and mood. Studies have shown that people who listen to music regularly score higher on intelligence tests than people who do not. This is because they can retain more information and are in happier moods for longer periods of time. Even plants and babies can benefit from listening to music. Music should be included in everyone's life!

There are many different music genres to choose from. Each genre contains its own unique sounds, beats, lyrics, and messages. Music genres are simply a variety of music artists, tempos, and beats. The type of music genre a person enjoys listening to depends on personal preference, mood, or type of activity. Many people enjoy listening to multiple music genres. Whatever you listen to, the music will definitely make your life better!

        Yes, they do because the vibrations from music produce movement within the plant cells. This process stimulates the plant to produce more nutrients. If plants don't respond well to rock music, it isn't because they prefer classical music instead.

        beautiful hub! I really enjoyed reading this.

        Music is so relaxing and inspiring. I found some great videos on youtube, which I find very relaxing. It´s basically just soothing instrumental music, very simple, but very effective.

        Makes me think of a lovely quote from Beethoven "Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend". For a couple of brief snippets in my life I felt like I might have felt the comprehension before it quickly moved on.

        Also - pictures like that first one should make it 11 reasons.
