Function of Music

To me, music is something I listen to to pass time, for instance, if I’m on public transport, or doing work. Many of my favourite pieces of music relate to me on many different levels, and suit my mood at that current moment in time. When I listen to one of my favourite songs, it takes me back to the past and to me, nothing else matters at that time.
