Yeah but I know some tranquil songs that I didn't really like at first but, after playing through entire soundtracks, take a mysterious liking to them that I could never understand earlier, so I get what you mean. Favorited most of these so as to not leave them lost in the jungle of my mass chattiness in this forum XD
At least when it came to chess, I was always thrilled with depressing or angsty music. But there's a limit where I can never improve without shifting my personality in some alternation, which is one of my unintended skills XD so I like the yin and the yang in favor of some more positive tunes as well. I knew pretty much no music whatsoever for myself in 2003 hahaha, was just the class pet in many classes in Seventh Grade.
