There are probably an infinitesimal number of people who do not indulge themselves a good movie or a good song. The industries of music and movies continue to grow—let’s look at why that is.
Music Alters Moods
Studies have gone to show that music can actually alter and affect your mood. Your pulse goes up when you’re listening to music with a fast beat. Your breathing slows when you’re listening to something laid back.
Music can even invoke feelings and memories. There are certain parts of our brain that are steadily triggered through sound and song. As something that can be quite tied to memories and moments, it is not surprising at all that music will continue to have support from everyday individuals.
Movies Provide Escape
Movies are gateways to different worlds and other people’s lives. They provide us with a different perspective and even allow us to get to know ourselves a little better. We like to put ourselves in the situations of the characters in films and ponder what we would do in a similar situation.
This provides a form of escape from the everyday mundane life that we all tend to live. So it doesn’t really strike us as strange when we get reports that the movie industry is worth billions and even trillions of dollars.
Both industries of music and movies play an integral part in representing the culture that we are all included in. No matter what part of the world you live in, you will hear songs and you will catch a film or two—even if it was just in passing. We honestly think that’s a good thing. There are so many emotions and lessons that are carried by both industries. These are things that everyone could learn more from.
Do you like movies or music? Why do you believe both industries will continue to grow?
