Music is neither a new invention nor a niched experience. No matter the age, the sound of music can make us feel happy, sad, energetic or melancholic because our brains actually respond differently to happy and sad music. The right songs can heal souls or help people overcome emotions and fears. You already have proved that you need musical messages to express your feelings when many of you asked for singing and dancing Zoobe characters. Let’s see how they can help you with even more than that.
Music and dance go hand in hand and on 29th of April we’ve celebrated International Dance Day, when music met her sister: dance. On this occasion, each year there are organized events with the purpose of attracting the attention of the wider public to the art of dance. If you want to know more about dance and the Zoobe dancing characters, check this article about why people love to dance.
A really interesting fact is how our emotions are affected by music: there are two kinds of emotions related to music: perceived emotions and felt emotions. What does it mean? Sometimes we can understand the emotions of a song without actually feeling them, which would explain why some of us find listening to sad music enjoyable, rather than depressing.
Singing is also used when trying to apologize, thus the reason so many love songs talk about feeling sorry for what they did and wanting to go back to the point where they were before making a mistake: in a relationship with the one they hurt.
It’s hard to tell someone you care or you are sorry because it’s never an easy job to find the great timing, the right words and the perfect way to say it. What choices do you have when you want to express your feeling without getting hurt?
Our grandparents might’ve chosen the serenade to reveal their feelings to the one they loved. But it’s not the case anymore.
Times might’ve changed but the feelings didn’t. We still love and hurt and still feel the need to express ourselves through music. Why do you think most of the hits are love songs or involve feelings related to broken hearts? It’s easier this way and everybody can relate to that.
The problem is that not all of us are singers. Actually most of us aren’t. But we found the alternative for nowadays serenades: sending personalized song messages using the Zoobe app.
1. Just choose the right character for you
The one that resembles with you better or the one that you know will make him or her heart melt. You can use specially designed characters like Singing Smurfette, Barry the Basset or the Dancing Bunny or pick one that is most appropriate for your situation. Maybe Kitty, Schnitzel, Tyranni, Kiara, the Zoobe Bunny or Eve; pick the one that suits you best. You can send an apologize message, an “I love you” one an “I miss you” video.
2. Take a picture
Or upload a picture of your favorite artist or whatever you thing will express your feelings better and will match the song’s meaning.
3. Choose the mood
Or the one your message requires. Maybe it’s an “I am sorry message” or an “I love you” one.
4. And record 30 seconds of the song.
Or even better and recommended - sing it yourself.
The sweet voice of the character can be adjust, just the way you’d like it to sound. Test it and stick to the one you like the most. Capture the right words and send it to the your loved one. Either in personal message or share it with all of you friends on Facebook, Twitter or Youtube.
Some of you already tried it and we are proud to say you did a great job.
