Music Is Emotion by JohnYume Music Is Emotion by JohnYume
I wanted a stamp that reflects my view on music, I really think I could have done a better job but oh well~~

I don't really expect people to agree with me. I'm not proficient in music what-so-ever either.

To me what makes music exceptional isn't the lyrics, the genre, or type of instruments. It's the emotion in the sound. When I can hear the the desperation, the grief, the nostalgia, the confusion, the hope, the passion, the humor... that's when it becomes more than just a poem or a good beat.

To me it doesn't matter if the song is popular or not, vocals or not, old or new. All that really matters is if it has it's own emotion.

btw don't please don't argue with me about the merit of lyrics or whatnot. I love good lyrics too.

Yes. IMO, music that means nothing, it's not worth listening to.

Agreed. I feel like people judge me for my music tastes all the time :C How DARE you be an art major and listen to popular music?! You MUST convert to ultra obscure-hipstery music D8<

THIS. Lyrics, good sound, instruments... they play a part as well, but honestly it all depends on the emotion it evokes in me. A song that can stir my heart... that's what I value. :)

Oh yeah! Definitely true! Thats why, when we hear foreign music in languages we don't know we can still relate and feel connected to the songs. For example, the song "Butterfly" by Asian Kung Fu Generation I feel emotionally connected to. Haven't looked up the translation to the lyrics or anything, but I feel like I know what its about without actually knowing.

Yup yup! I think it turned out good as a stamp too! Like the changing colors, they clearly illustrate what the text is about. Every song is different, just like every color, but each has its own sound and passion and when the listener can hear it then we've got a great song there; just like color can effect the viewer tremendously as another tool to describe emotion.

Yes, this is perfect :heart: I love songs that make you feel. I also like it when the artist is genuine and you can tell by the way they perform.
I really like how you did the layout for this stamp, too, man. It's really good.
