do you guys enjoy music as much as you used to say before dp/dr? find i don't and i used to love hip/hop rap and i still like it, but i don't feel the music anymore. if u kno what i mean. i can't bop my head anymore to a beat that type of feel or tap my feet. i just don't feel it in my soul anymore, and i want to feel music more than anything, at least that would make me sort of happy, music or sports i want to feel something. i was such a big hip hop fan b4 this crap started, and i feel like i'm not a fan anymore. I even was lookin to be a producer or work in the music industry before all this,

but it seems like the dp has shattered my dreams and i have no ambition anymore. anyone one else feel the same way? its horrible, music was like half my life that and sports, now both are taken away from me, no it feels like i have nothing to live for. if i get the love for sports or music again the excitement adrenaline i would be happy, but i'm not so i don't know what to do, this thing is taking my life away and i want my life back, at least my love for music or something.

It'll come back and when it does it'll come back stronger than before. During my early DP day's I couldn't tolerate music. It just didn't process in my brain at all. Now I would consider music to be a vital part of my life. I hear different things that I didn't before. I interpret music alot more easily. I find meanings in everything in music. DP also broadens your horizons when it comes to music. If it weren't for DP then I wouldn't have discovered such great bands as Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Sigur Ros etc...Just give it time man. I know how painful it is to lose the enjoyment of music, but it will come back very soon and your ears will hear it in a way that is indescribable.

I love music, its one of the few things that keep me sane.

I myself rap and am heavily involved with starting a label & making music with one of my close friends. Not your typical MTV POP Rap that you may be used to, but its what I want to do with my life.

My love for music has stayed the same if not grown and in a way having all these issues gives me more to write about. I thank the existence upstairs for music & the talent I was given.

I think music is a great escape and even if your not an artist, you should incorporate it into your lifein some way.

Mrmole,

You're into rock/metal? Check out Blind Guardian's "A Night at the Opera", one of the best albums ever recorded. I'm obsessed with it right now.

PureNarcotic, Sigur Ros is great. Both of their albums are stunning.

I can't really speak about "before", because that was such a long time ago for me.

All I can say is Verdi's "Va, pensiero, sull'ali dorate" wafts me into a tranquil realm where there is no anxiety, and Strauss's "Thus spoke Zarathustra" stirs me to emotional heights not possible under other conditions.

If I could just listen to music all the time (and yeah, I'm of a classical bent, which makes me a bit of an oddy in this thread), maybe I wouldn't have as much of a problem.

It's the only time I really feel anything, I think it's reasonable to say.

But when the music ends, so do the feelings.

Jasonfar,

I only have the ( ) album, but I have become hooked on it very quickly. I was thinking about purchasing an explosions in the sky album. Any one that you recommend personally?

hahahhaha the lead singer from green day has dp
That's what I read in another post here a month or so back. But I saw a picture of them on a magazine cover recently, and they all had the exact same look about them.

If you asked me to try and spot the dp'd one, I doubt I could've. Which lead me to suspect that they all might have it.

Green Day is okay. Lyrically their music is very DPed, but the music is too punkish and power chordish(is that a word?) and lacks the atmospheric/spacy/i'm living in a dream element of a Sigur Ros or a Radiohead or even a modern legend like Beck. Listen to 'How to dissappear completely' and tell me that isn't depersonalized lyrics at their finest. Another unheard of band from the early 90's that could probably be categorized as DP is Slowdive. Their music was as dreamlike as it can get. I can't even listen to their material anymore because it makes me want to fucking off myself.
