Question This is a tough concept to describe least for me

I'm sure that you've all had an experience similar to this. I've been listening to alot of indie/alt./ambient stuff lately (to counteract the heavy stuff i've listened to haha), namely speaking Lydia. There's just something about this music to me. It's almost as if you could call it some kind of trascendental music because it blows my mind to just sit and listen to these songs (mostly when driving).

It's almost like its one of those moments in a movie when some really awesome music is playing and the main character's struggles are resolved...that type of music/feeling...does that make any sense?

In essence, what i'm trying to say is: is it just me or are there certain songs that make us sit back and reflect on how awesome our lives have been?

As you can tell, i'm pretty ignorant in this field of 'transcendental music' there any specific name/theory associated with this idea?

Yes, it's called an emotional response.

Re: This is a tough concept to describe

Well, that's a given. This is more of like a highly euphoric, almost exaggerated response.

All music evokes an emotional response (even whether bad or good)

Re: This is a tough concept to describe

I'm a writer as well and I frequently use music to set me in a mood for a given scene I'm working on. The same premise holds true for the movie score when you're viewing a film; it enhances the experience.
