What kind of music is easy to hear in the car?
Most likely the answer depends on your taste. Indeed music, which in fact is an art, is of course very dependent on the taste of the listener. But that’s not all, music is also influenced by other factors such as mood, time (morning, afternoon, night), place, and even the weather (rainy, sunny).
That’s right? If I do, hehe.
Now, talking about the place, listening to music in the car has its own comfort and convenience. Especially for people who are fond of cars or driving, music can be friends on a trip with a favorite car.
” Sometimes, the best therapy is a long drive and music”
