Well, it kind of makes sense. If you were depressed you would be listening to music to help cope with anxiety, stress, and depression. So it kind of makes sense. I still get the feeling their claims have little to no factual basis.

With the amount of people that listen to music daily, they are saying that 90% of the population is 8.3x more stressed then the 10% of people who don't listen to music. That is complete 						********

I sometimes depress myself on point just to release some pressure.
I.e. taking the DE in DEpress literally.

I think the key here is moderation.

teenagers? listen, I'm almost thirty...and if I'm not listening to music of some kind 80% of the time or more it's a panic level of concern for me. live to live people

I understand what they meant. They aren't saying it causes teen depression. It's saying that if they listen to music that often it must be because they were already depressed and need to listen to that much music to cope.

Music, happy or depressed. Choose one.

I'm assuming it's following the idea of listening to music, and never not listening to music.
It's one thing to use music to destress and another to use it to block yourself off from the world.

That particular account has been wrong on a number of occasions.

Because depressed people listen to music a lot. Not because music makes you depressed.

Regardless of the validity of these statements, the two do not contradict eachother.

It depends if you are listening to girls generation or Bieber for that length of time. One makes you feel upbeat, one super depressed.

correlation =/= causation

That said, music can be both the cause of and solution to problems, so it can go both ways, but it's generally more helpful even if it does make you feel more depressed for the moment.

People have got to start realizing that when it isn't so extreme that it's harmful to you, depression is a useful and often necessary human function. It's your body and feelings telling you that you've got a lot of **** to work out and that you should think hard about your problems rather than ignoring them, in the hopes that eventually you'll solve them.

In the same way, generally music is helpful even if you're depressed and listening to depressing music, because that's generally something you need to get through and past, not something to ignore or cover over. So just because music makes you more depressed doesn't mean it isn't still good for you emotionally and psychologically most of the time.
