Do you also have songs that affect you greatly? There are songs I can hear and there is an immediate change to my mood. I always brighten up when I hear many of the 50s and 60s, but especially The Lion Sleeps Tonight. Always. We had a tech who as playing this to test the sound system at at a meeting recently. We, who had come to finalize set up for tables, chairs, etc. came in and he immediately turned it down. We begged for it to be turned back up. All of us danced around the entire room. It was a riote! I can hear Leavin' on a Jet Plane, Scarborough Fair, or Dear Father and immediately feel melancholy. Cecelia or That Thing You Do! will perk me right back up. And If I had a Hammer, oh yea, patriotic. But in a different way than the Star Spangled Banner or Proud to be an American.
What about you? Any instant mood changers? Or is it just me?
