Can different genres of music affect a person's mood?
Yes. It depends on the music that plays to determine weather or not a mood would be associated. For example, if you were @ a funeral and they played a slow or sad song, this will cause you to become sad and begin to cry occationally. In some times,funerals may or may not play sad songs depending on weather or not the people cause different moods with different kinds of songs.
Do you mean different kinds of music? There are many different kinds of music. Just google "music genres" and it should come up with heaps! On the top of my head Blues, Country, Experimental, Indie, Folk, Acoustic, Instrumental, Classical, Dance, House, Electro, Techno, Rock, Alternative, Metal, Hardcore, Rap, RnB, World Music, Tribal, Traditional, Celtic... and under those there are sub genres after sub genres...
There are many many different genre's of music, which are, in essence, made infinite by the sub genres that fall under each individual genre. The blending of different genre's and sub genres create new genres and for this reason genre's such as "breakcore" or "black metal" come into being. GIG YEAH!!!!
