Taking notes


clothing is an expression of my mood, a meter for it, but a song can establish a mood, an attitude for the whole day.

do certain songs shape your moods and effect your appearance/pace/mentality?

and while we're at it, my little band of the day has a good idea (click here).

Sometimes I hear Beck's beats in my head when I get dressed, his Dior Homme song and Cellphone's Dead, which sound very similar.

I wish the runway shows, for the most part, would give the models better music to walk to. Something that gives them a beat and an attitude.
As for my appearance, etc., I'm not sure which comes first, a chicken-and-the-egg conundrum - I suppose if I started each day with a randomly chosen song, yes, that would definitely shift my gears, effect my mood/outlook, and in turn, what I would wear. Otherwise, I am not sure what generates my moods, but that then determines what I want to wear AND listen to. But the 2 are definitely related. If I want to listen to aggressive music, I am more likely dressed aggressively. If I select melancholic music, then my style reflects that too.
Good questions!

I love cafes & bookstores with some great jazz. I would stay there forever, and it really does slow down my pace.

On the other hand, this is what's been playing in my head the past two days...

Not sure if it's effecting my mood though. Maybe.

Music definitely effects my mood and attitude. I have a friend who carefully selects his soundtrack for the day every morning, starting with breakfast music. I don't listen often enough myself. Loved the Green Day!

Totally! Today La Belle et la Bête by Babyshambles was playing in my head the whole time.
