I am affected by music. I went to Phantom of the Opera with my mom, and the music in that play was haunting. Whenever the phantom entered, the music that accompanied him made me think that he was startling and alone. I think the people who wrote the music did that on purpose to make the audience feel sorry for the phantom even when he was doing bad things.
