Do You Use Music to Create a Mood?

In last week's Glee episode, April Rhodes pops in a CD at Mr. Schue's home, setting a pretty sad mood when they bust out their cover of Barbra Streisand's medley song "One Less Bell to Answer/A House Is Not a Home."

Besides maybe blasting some upbeat music to get in the Spring cleaning mode, I don't use music a lot to add to the atmosphere of my place. But I've noticed when others do it — such as my mom playing Italian music while preparing for a dinner party or friends that always have classical streaming in the background — it completes the home's package, in the same way that lighting, paint colors, or furniture would. How 'bout you?

Funny you should ask, I am doing just that right now! I usually put on "soundscapes" when I am home cooking or cleaning to set a more relaxing mood. We play top 40s when friends come over. And I love playing holiday music, especially when it was traditional Irish music for St. Patrick's Day!

Yes, especially for a social event. Personally, I prefer old-school jazz music.

hmmm well a little - i, like you casa, always play loud, fun music to get myself in the mood to do something like clean or prepare to cook a large feast but when people are over, we usually do play country music in the background because it's fun and upbeat i just never really thought too much about it before...music is just nicer than silence
