I recently fell into a mood to listen to a ton of classical music.
I can’t really say why, though it could be because I am feeling stressed out by a lot of stuff going on with my life, and I need something new to listen to so I could relax. Maybe it could be because I am getting sick and tired of all the pop music I am hearing almost everywhere I go.
Now, majority of the music I am listening to are not new to me. A lot of them sound familiar. I do recall that a lot of animations years ago used classical scores for music. I can’t recall which one now, but it could be Looney Tunes or Disney who used them for theme music. I think Tom and Jerry also used some.
I do recall an animation where Bugs Bunny played a piano concert. That was amusing. Tom and Jerry also had a similar scene – though it involves more piano destruction. Heh.
Either way, unknowingly, I was exposed to these music early on. Whatever is causing me to be pulled towards listening more of these – well, as I have said, I can’t quite put a finger to it.
But it is helping.
I feel more relaxed and am able to concentrate on my tasks more. It is a good and refreshing feeling.
What’s a bit funny to me is that before I got in the mood for some classical music, I was blasting a lot of metal music and rock. Strange progression, eh?
