"Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness." Maya Angelou - Gather Together in My Name

It has been said that music is what feelings sound like. Music is powerful and yet soothing; it brings joy to the masses and provokes emotion. It is the goal of Global Research Studies to explore the realm of music and its effects upon emotion and feelings. We wish to delve further into the study of music and lyrics upon youth and the changing feelings of people as they age in relation to their music choices.
