Question is, are there certain TYPES of music that help more than others? Or does it more depend on what that person likes. For instance, when depressed, if I turned up some heavy metal driving home, I might just get so down and angry that I'd drive myself off the road. However if I listen to something I like, obviously I feel better.
With that said, I think there can be a medium. For example, listen to something that you don't particularly get "into", and buy cd's, but don't particularly dislike it either...say, soothing music like enya...No matter what, you're bound to feel a relaxing feeling.
