MUSIC IN EVERYDAY LIFE



Music is unusual among all human activities for both its ubiquity and its antiquity. No known human culture now nor anytime in the recorded past lacked music, and some of the oldest physical artifacts found in human and proto-human excavation sites are musical instruments: bone flutes and animal skins stretched over tree stumps to make drums. Whenever humans come together for any reason, music is there: at weddings, funerals, graduation from college, soldiers marching off to war, stadium sporting events, prayer, a romantic dinner, mothers rocking their infants to sleep, and college students studying for exams. Even moreso in non-industrialized cultures than in modern Western societies, music is and was part of the fabric of everyday life – accompanying activities throughout the day from gathering and preparing food, to hunting, domestic chores, crafts, and religious ritual.
It is a common knowledge that song lyrics actually affect moods and social behavior of people, so in the different event, the different lyric would be provided, because there is the determined effect of certain song lyrics to the social behavior of people. Really, song lyrics would effectively initiate unintentional attitudes. Thus, many people and organizations could use specific songs with specific categories of lyrics to invoke targeted and intended social behaviors and feelings.
Then, many people today use music for emotional regulation in the way that they use drugs such as caffeine and alcohol: they use a certain kind of music to help get them going in the morning, another kind to unwind after work. People use music to help make it through their exercise workout or to comfort them during emotional crises. College students study to music and brain surgeons perform their most concentration-intensive procedures while music plays in the background. Music is often employed, therefore, as a way to motivate ourselves to accomplish certain tasks, and as a means of mood induction. Music becomes a way of organizing one's internal and social world, helping to continually reconstruct the aims of various activities. Just as film soundtracks enhance and emphasise the action on the movie screen, we all have “life soundtracks” – music we listen to that inspires, motivates, calms, excites, and generally moves along the action in our daily lives.
