i know you think it is funny, but the power music has on its followers is amazing.
i myself can get all different emotions by just listening to different types of music. music does have an influence, and the music industry knows
my own experience with music is this, i never listened to music till just before i turned 17. of course i heard music, but i was interested in other

of course there are pick me up music, you have things like hardcore at raves etc... that will make you really happy, but also too not to healthy to
listen to all the time.
so the thread user is right, music does have a big influence on people, and can even be a big factor in them commiting suicide. like what i said
above, if i had my time again, i would not listen to music like nirvana in an obsessive way like i did during my alevels, it just #ed me up in a big
