My contribution to this topic. I believe that a song reaching deep into our own inner being, our personal journey through life evokes the emotional responses that we feel. Music is the vehicle to communicate in ways that simple words cannot. Songs like Gone Too Soon (MJ), Always On My Mind (The King), Bridge Over Troubled Water (S & G) I feel that it would be hard not to be moved by. I guess music is a mirror of our spirits on this earth. Sorry rather deep but my sincere thoughts. Of course technically a song in a minor key would evoke a darker response than a major key but like the grating chalk some songs (for me electro musak) I'd prefer deafening silence whatever key it happens to be in. Here are some of the songs which evoke my emotional responses and I would love your thoughts on these guys on how they make you feel.. Good, bad or indifferent. Thank you and great topic!!
