As a “New Age traveller”, I used to move a lot to see the sights of different places, as a part of leisure pursuit since childhood. During this, I can’t fail to recall to proceeds towards assured stuffs which consist of prescriptions, walk-in wardrobe assortments, safety equipment and the most essential is my iPod. It is unbearable for me to travel devoid of my music player. The main intention behind this is “listening music during travel help to reminisce earlier happenings”. Each song in my playlist makes me to think of the beautiful and unpleasant happenings taken place in my life. So I can cognize the conception, that music is all ways related to human emotions. The main problem starts here, for instance: the songs in playlist were sorted out and played in the randomized manner and not according to human emotions. This theme perplexed me a lot. Is this possible to design a music player which has the ability to play music based on emotions? This paper is no way related to any new methodologies of designing a system which can understand human emotions. As a layman in musical research, I try to review the papers to explore that music can understand emotions. It also helps in understanding the constructive effects of music due to disturbances and variations in mood swings. Finally, it also dealt about the behavior personas, inborn and biological aspects which are due to the efficacy of music intercessions, neuro-chemical and anatomical homologues which are related to musical experiences in human.

Keywords: Reminisce, conception, emotions, mood-swings, behavior-personas
