Music evokes emotion and emotion can bring with it memory. -Oliver Sacks

A simple melody can open a door to its own world, where the instruments, pace, and lyrics have a huge impact on your mood, as well as let you relive that period of time when you listened to this music. A few notes of Hedwig's Theme can evoke the entire wizarding world at once, giving you a feeling of security and hope or make you remember watching the movie for the first time at the theatre.

In celebration of World Music Day on June 21st, some may use this month to remember the emotions and past that go with certain songs. Others might want to unpack an instrument and share memorable moments with family, friends, or even strangers.

Do you have any musical plans for June? And what music do you enjoy? Whether it's something that puts you in the mood to study or workout - or if there are songs to cheer you up or revive old memories - let's chat about it! Let's share recommendations and inspire each other to listen to songs we thought we had forgotten!

Every year I try to attend a Marimba festival near me. It is great fun. Not only to I hear interesting music, but workshops are also held too for instruments such as mbira. It is a wonderful experience.

I don't have any particular plans, but I always love listening to music. I'm on a grunge kick at the moment, from a combination of Captain Marvel fever and my quidditch character's style. My playlist includes such hits as I'm Only Happy When it Rains, Just a Girl, Come as You Are, and Violet.

I also have no plans in particular. However there are certain 'musics' that I enjoy and listen to. I tend to enjoy Celtic music, Native American and Tom Petty the most, lol. There are certain soundtracks that I enjoy, including last of the Mohicans, Dances with Wolves and The Lord of the Rings. I also really enjoy the theme song from the History Channel's show 'Vikings' a great deal. Here it is for those of you who haven't heard it.

I adore music but unfortunately missed out on seeing two artists that I love this June. I have no plans to see anything in specific as a result of this but do plan on listening to lots of music to make up for this.

I don't have any plans at the moment. I hate large crowds so it have to be one of my favorites for me to go see the concert. I like all kinds of music, Everything from Classical to Heavy Metal. The only music I don't like is rap.
At present on of my favorite groups is Home Free ( acapella ) Tim Foust did this song with Peter Hollens which I love. It's from Lord of the Rings

I also love listening to soundtracks, especially when I'm in the mood of writing or drawing. I've just listened to the Vikings theme song and it's really inspiring, a song I'll definitely remember for whenever I do something creative next time ^^

@DominicanSr I just googled Mbira and it looks so interesting! Have you ever played it yourself? If yes, how difficult is it to learn?

Thank you @dobby_is_freeee 😊
I'm just a bit reticent because of how hot it is and I've heard about people fainting while waiting to get inside but I'm sure they learned from the first day and it'll be better tomorrow!

James Bay and Zara Larsson will be opening for him, so it should be a good one!

It does sound like a good one! Maybe you have luck and it won't be too hot (and nobody will faint) @MsVera

I don't have any musical plans but I listen to music every day. I like pop music most and pop/rock, also some indie music.... i hate club music it just sounds like noise to me and gives me a headache, i still love the old boybands from years ago, like Busted and A1 and NSync.

This is one of my favourite topics! I love music.

I don't have any special plans, but music will be in my life for sure as usual .

I listen to all genres of music and love them. I play the piano, saxophone, percussion, and I'm learning to play the guitar.

Music inspires me and relaxes me. It has such immense power .

Do you have any musical plans for June?
I usually go with family to Spring Concerts at local events. It's at a local school and it's enjoyable to see elementary children playing different instruments at an amateur level.

And what music do you enjoy?
I like all types of music. I listen to classic, rock, pop, country and what ever comes along.

I think as I get older, I will appreciate the classical music. It reminds me of my mom. She loves to play it around the house and I know her favorites. It will be something that brings memories to me as I get older.

I don't have any musical plans for June beyond listening to it every day. I enjoy listening to all genres, and enjoy singing and playing guitar, flute, and piano.

One song that I've been obsessed with lately is a cover of Magic by Ben Folds. I like the original, but there's something about the acapella version that I like more.

I can totally imagine it to be great fun! I've listened to the sound of Mbira on YouTube and it is indeed an instrument with a lovely sound! I wish I could hear one irl sometime ^^

That's a beautiful meaning behind the music! It is almost like the music a person likes can be an attribute of them... But I also notice that I apreciate classical music more the older I get. Five years ago I'd have never listened to this genre of music (especially because those were longer than the 'usual' songs ^^)

I listen to all kinds of music!

I listen to worship music a lot. It helps me when I'm down. But worship music comes in many forms.

I listen to hard rock Christian bands like Skillet when I work out. They have Christian screamo too, if you didn't know

But I also listen to secular alternative music. I like weird stuff like Jason Mraz. I also like classics like Eric Clapton.

Basically I like everything xD
