Music calms you when you are stressed and describes who you are.

The popular music of today's youth gives me a headache but mine doesn't. I usually just listen to soft piano or j-pop but I have a few normal songs. I listen to music because it inspires me when I'm working and it makes me relaxed

Whats the point of listening to music?

On the psychological side, music can alter your mood, inspire you, entertain you, and so on. There's plenty of psychological benefits to listening to music.

If you go a little deeper down the rabbit hole though, atomic theory can bring you to a conclusion that music does much more than just alter your mood.

If you are familiar with chemistry, you're familiar with the idea that we are all composed of gazillions of atoms. and interestingly enough all these atoms are constantly in motion and effecting one another.

Now consider how a microwave works. In that microwave ovens cause the molecules in your foods to rotate by sending "microwave energy" into your food. This in turn causes the overall energy of your food to increase which is why your food feels warm.

Pursuing this idea a little further, consider that sounds are energy in the form of certain wavelengths. If sending microwaves into your food increases the overall energy of your food, isnt it possible that by sending sound wavelengths into your body, you are increasing your overall energy?

And maybe, just maybe the molecules in our bodies respond to certain sounds in different ways and in turn alter our moods.

Music describes you, and is like an introduction to yourself

In addition to what others have been saying about enjoyment and such:

Listening to music doesn't prevent you from doing other activities so I would rarely perceive it as a waste of time. Music can also make a person more productive by increasing morale and setting a cadence to follow. For me it also fills in any gaps of my attention so I stay focused on a task rather than working out an unrelated idea in my head, which is helpful while studying and driving.
