When you walk in your door after work, doing the shopping, or even after having a truly spectacular day...you have to ask yourself...can my mood get any better?
The answer is..of course it can. With the help of music.
We've all experienced the feeling...a rapid change in mood when a favourite song is on, how it changes the tone of things in our lives, how it can change a room's atmosphere. There's a reason why music is played at dinner parties, in restaurants, in stores. It's a subtle, yet completely effective form of mood manipulation.
And to be honest, I'm not going to object to this form of manipulation one bit.
Lately, I've been coming home and kicking my shoes off to forms of downtempo jazz, the type your soul sings out to in response.
