The most part of people enjoys listening to music. Tastes differ and even the close people may prefer the completely different styles of music. For example a wife may enjoy rock and alternative while her husband knows and loves classic music like Bach or Mozart. Have you ever asked yourself a question why do people love music? Probably you have noticed a lot of times how music is able to influence the human mind. It is possible that each person has experienced the influence of music at least once. Today music is used to change the mood of people quite effectively.
Music itself is great. But when it is combined with touching story, special effects and splendid voices of actors it becomes a pure pleasure, so intense and engrossing that you feel you can touch it. Musicals provide us with this combination of songs and performance and the melodies of the best of them remain with us long after the final accords.
As I am a great fan of musicals, it is hard for me to define the best one. However, the first which comes to my head is “Chicago”, so I will start with it. This musical is starring Richard Gere, Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Though they are professional actors, they perform all songs themselves and the musical did not suffer from their singing talents at all. The true gem of this story is “Cell Block Tango” scene where female prisoners sing alternately about their crimes. Black humor and sexy murderesses with red scarves symbolizing blood make this scene unforgettable. Among other beautiful songs of this musical is “All That Jazz”, “Funny Honey” and “The Hungarian Disappearing Act”.
The music that may have such strong effect on the human body as weight loss will also help to reveal the creative potential by affecting the processes that are controlled by the body unconsciously.
Today the musical therapy is used as the significant constituent of the psychotherapy, spa procedures and even cancer treatment. The pleasant melodies that take you back to the most happy memories contain the carefully arranged sounds of a certain frequencies which balance the metabolic processes of the organism and are aimed to heal the human body.
