Why Having Music In Common Is Important On Skype
1. Music is a great icebreaker
If you and someone you’re talking to have the same musical tastes, then chances are that they will have similar interests. This is because music is a universal language that everybody can understand. This means that once you get to know someone through music, they will be more likely to share their interests with you.
2. Music can help in finding common ground with someone
The next time you find yourself conversing with another person on Skype, ask them what their favorite piece of music is. It’s likely that your conversation will be more enjoyable if you both share the same musical taste. You’ll also find it easier to relate to each other if both of you like the same kind of music. You might even discover that your musical tastes are similar as well!
3. You can learn about people from their musical tastes
Music is a great way to get to know someone better and see how much they really know about certain artists and songs. If we take for example George Michael, the song “Careless Whisper” would not only tell us about his personality but also about his relationship with Andrew Ridgeley (the lead singer of Wham!). The song “I Want Your Sex” on the other hand tells us quite a lot about Michael’s sexuality and how he felt at that time in his life which was also when he wrote it (Michael was bisexual at this point in his life).
4. Music is a great way to relax and unwind
Music is one of the best ways to relieve stress. You can use music as a form of meditation or relaxation technique which will help you both relax and unwind. For example, if you’re feeling stressed about work, listening to music can help you slow down your breathing and mentally prepare yourself for the day ahead. If you’re feeling anxious from a recent argument with someone, you can listen to music that has a soothing effect on your mind (think classical music).
5. Music helps in communication
Music is an essential part of communication since it allows for more than just words (like body language) to be expressed. It also helps in conveying emotions and feelings that may be hard to put into words. For example, if someone seems very angry while talking on Skype then they may have a difficult time expressing their anger through body language and facial expressions but through their choice of music they may be able to convey the same emotions using their favorite song or artist as inspiration or reference point (just like in the case of Michael when he wrote “Careless Whisper”).
6. Music makes people more comfortable when talking over Skype
People tend to feel more at ease when communicating with each other through music as opposed to just talking without any background noise such as white noise or even silence (this is because we have become used to background noises during everyday life). Background noises can also help people to focus on the conversation which can be a good thing when it comes to keeping focused during a conversation (the same goes for white noise).
How To Find Out What Someone’s Favorite Song Is On Skype
- Have the person you want to find out their favorite song on Skype open up Skype and start a conversation with you.
- Ask them what their favorite song is and try to get them to tell you the name of the song (or artist if they prefer).
- When they are done talking, pause the Skype call then use your computer’s media player to listen to their favorite music while they are still on Skype with you (make sure that the music has no lyrics).
- When they are done with their conversation and have left Skype, simply use your media player again to hear their favorite music for about 5 minutes or until it stops playing then ask them what their other favorite songs are (you could also ask this question during their last message before leaving).
- Repeat steps 2-4 at least once a week and keeps track of which songs they like.
- When you have enough data, chart it out using an Excel spreadsheet or even make a chart in Google Docs or Google Sheets (this will help you visualize where all the data points fall – is it mostly in one area of interest or spread out across multiple areas).
If you love music and want to get to know somebody better, you have to have music in common. If you love jazz but the person you’re talking to loves heavy metal, you aren’t going to be able to connect. If you want to find out what kind of music somebody likes, try playing one of your favorite songs and asking them what it reminds them of. This is a great way to learn about each other without feeling like you’re prying. You can also ask the other person what their favorite song is. If you play one of your favorite songs and they tell you that it reminds them of something, ask them what that is. This is a great way to connect with others and find out what makes them tick.
