But it does for some people, it might empower them, you know? I think that's the point. When people listen to music, certain chemicals and neurotransmitters go off in the brain and stimulate the pleasure centres. It doesn't have to be soothing and emotive music. Sometimes I put on something heavy and it has the same emotional impact than if I had put on something soft and ethereal.
