The Effect of Music on Our Lives
Music has always been a huge factor in my life. Not only does it serve as one of my greatest influences in the world, but it also defines who I am as a human being. It has helped mold me into the kind of person I am today, as well as the kind of person that I strive to become in the future. Music gives me the strength I need to push forward, to achieve my goals, and to believe that I have the power to change the fate of our world.

Of course, there are also instances when all I want to do is laugh and jump around the house, dancing to all my favorite catchy tunes. During those times, I listen to a totally different style of music It all depends on my mood, which constantly varies as the days progress.

You may have heard people say that they cannot live without music. People say a lot of things...most of which are far from the truth. However, when I say that it is impossible for me to live without music, I truly mean it. To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I haven’t listened to music. I literally cannot go one day without listening to some kind of tune. No matter what, I always find a way to satisfy my craving for music. Comment by Rassel Muraywed: Ethos – this is Ethos because I’m telling you that I know what it’s like to love music and that you should listen to me because I know how music influenced my life.
When you love something so much, you fight for it…no matter what opposition may stand in your way. When you truly care for something and feel passionate about it, the way I do, you’ll be able to discuss it for hours upon hours. There’s just no end to it. With music, it’s...
