Psychosis and music

I always remember that when I was in Psychosis - song in the charts made a big impression on me - when I got out of hospital I use to buy the Cds

I was in a nightclub, and i thought I was changing the music with my thoughts
I hardly listen to music now - I listen to radio 4
Also some of the words in songs use to freak me - like musical messages

Did you ever hear the single " if yiu buy this record your life will be better" I believed that n bought it n my life wasnt better. Oh well

I always have a problem with that I always think that the music is about how I feel n my emotions though I'm getting better also I could never to change a track on an album I used to think that I must listen to every track now its forward if I dont like the track.

If I liked a single I would have to buy the album on the strengh which is something I dont do any more, there are some very good albums but there are some crap. The worst album I got was duffys last year.

Ive noticed that words in songs depend totally on your current state of mind. Take for example greendays basket case. When I used to listen this as a young teenager it was about liberation, freedom, and inspired me. I think that was mostly because of the catchy rocky vibe it has. I heard it a few weeks ago and it screams everything thats wrong in my life. The song is obviously about mental health, which I didnt realise before. It was so obvious that I was stunned.

I think that james morrisons album sums it up really " songs for you truths for me"

I do think that most artists words are usually close to their hearts, kind a like poetry.

Though I love the words on the new pet shop boys album (I'm going to build a wall not to keep you out but to keep me in.)

Hi jd, bought the Pet Shop Boys album myself yesterday, played it over and over...I love those words too, they mean such a lot.

Why do words of songs seem to match your mood so closely? It always happens to me especially when I'm in crisis.

Wow! I do that too, also change the music on the radio.

Try listening to "Tilt" or "The Drift" by Scott Walker, probably the two darkest records I've ever heard!

Hi jd, we were talking on the forum a bit ago about music and the sound it makes. I have usually been attracted to a record by its overall sound impact on me and it has to be a really special record if I like the words.
That's what attracts me to 'Its a sin'...I love the sound it makes rather than the words.
I prefer the early stuff of the Pet Shop Boys, and have been disappointed over the past few years when I bought a cd just because it was them.
Can't remember if they've had a no.1. I've got quite a big cd collection and can't remember who's got what!!!...old age.
Found my old vinyls in the loft so I'm having a go, when finances allow,at building that collection up a bit....like 60's and 70's stuff.
QF.
