It prompts a particular mood, by
 
Best answer

For me, it's always about a mood, generally dictated by what I absorb through my senses at some point of the day.  It's why I could never state that I have a "favorite" anything.  How can you when....moods and flavors of moods change?  At least, that's how it runs for me.

@ FR  I could not of put that any better myself because that's exactly why I listen to the music with so many flavours that I do and could never say

"this is my favourite genre"

My lofty, artsy fartsy response is... I put a song in my playlist because I like the song.  I have music from nearly every genre except opera and dubstep.

Yes, of course, but the question is WHY do you like the song. I have everything from Classical to Foreign Language, to Classic Rock to New Wave, to Weird Shit.

Some have a good beat, or lyrics, or they're from a movie or TV show I like.  Others have good instrumentals or vocals or they remind me of a happy time.  Some are good to listen to when I'm angry, letting me drive and scream along with the lyrics.  Each song is liked for a different reason, I guess.

It just depends. I like different types of music for different reasons. When it comes to classical, I obviously don't care about lyrics, but when it comes to rap, lyrics are the most important part (along with beat). I also love electronica because of the different varieties of electronic sounds. I like music in languages I don't understand because I like the sound of the languages...there are a lot of reasons.

When I listen to Electronic music, I have to enjoy the loud beat, but when I listen to a Sounds of Nature CD, I have to relax.
