Can anyone describe the emotions we get from music?
Music is not for thinking. It is meant for feeling. Don’t use your head. Knowledge or experience is not needed in order to feel happiness from white cold snow, warm smells of flowers, a heart warming meal, the blue ocean, or the touch of your lover’s hand. The same applies to music. Just feel it.
If you wish to get in touch deeply with music, just try to set in with it. Music is a wave, as well as our feelings.
Believe in the music you are listening to, and hand your heart over to it. It is like tuning a radio into the right station. If and when the wavelengths match (and only if,) you will understand everything the music is wanting to tell you. Keep the emotions you get to your heart, such as joy, sadness, happiness, and anger. Do not be ashamed of being moved by music. Praise yourself from being so honest."

I wish someone would go take one of the PSX Final Fantasies (VII-IX) and rebalance them to make them extremely difficult. Like crushingly so. I wanna replay those games but I could do it blindfolded; this would give me the nastolgia I need with some challenge.
So yeah. Someone get on that?
