Thump In The Morning

After a long Winter and a very bi-polar Spring, Summer is approaching. That mean hot weather, sunny skies, pool parties, picnics and barbeques. Obviously, some genres have a different affect based on the season. Summer songs are usually more up-tempo and fun.

So while you are getting ready for the fun in the sun, the perfect summer playlist is a must. Tempo is a major component on the energy and pace of a song. Too slow, and audiences tune out, too fast, and audiences flee, feeling overwhelmed. Listening to or making music increases blood flow to brain regions that generate and control emotions.

Have you noticed that the music you listen to while driving controls the way you drive? songs with high energy tend to make  you drive faster and your more likely to have road rage. The slower songs makes you drive much slower and you tend to have more patience.

According to “Music is such a core part of culture and everyday experience that it has long been believed to be connected to one’s personality.” Music, more than any other media, has strong ties to our emotions: music communicates emotion, stirs memory, affects mood, and spurs creativity.

Many summer hits stick in our memories as belonging to a particular season because they’re specifically summer-themed. It’s easy to imagine listening to songs about the beach or pool parties when the days are long and warm.

Love lyrics in a song are most important for cooler seasons aka “boo’d up seasons.” Songs you listen to while indoors cuddled up. Fun and hard dance beats are more common for summer songs. Things you could listen to while doing outdoor activities.
