I love a wide range of music...

...but I need to be aware that music has considerable effects of "amplifying" mood.

If I am feeling aggressive and I am working out, heavy metal can make me too agitated. Sometimes I am in a neutral or mellow mood and I can't even listen to metal at all. I used to listen to the hard stuff while working out and now I find I like quiet at home where I can focus on my weights without getting too amped up.

If I am feeling down or suffering from a bout of depression, certain music makes it feel worse... music with dark or depressing themes.

If I am feeling amped up, I find some gentle blue-grass, classical or even trance music can certainly have a calming effect.

I think music indeed has effects on mood, and can amplify feelings and/or emotions that are already being experienced.
