Why Do I Want The Positive and Negative Emotions in the Songs In a Musical?

Finally, I will be talking about the songs. Musical songs are incredible and capable of so much. One thing I definitely want in the songs are the positive and negative emotions.

The positive emotions naturally feel good. They also are the strongest. Excitement, love, and joy are the main positive emotions. They happen in two ways: through the musical itself and the experience. Excitement is that kind of emotion that likes to happen during dance numbers and tends to start the show due to the overture. They just naturally work in a musical. Love is a very common musical emotion because in just about every musical, there is always romance and it is a beautiful emotion. So love feels good and is a very beautiful emotion, which is also part of the negative emotions. These emotions in some situations are easier to notice than the negative emotions.

But what about the negative emotions in the songs? Those are much harder to describe why I want them. Those two main emotions are sad and heartbreak, but love is in this category as well. They are going to hurt in a musical, but at the same time, they give a positive response. Musicals that happen to have sad or heartbreaking songs that are strong enough tend to be the complex musicals. In addition, those that have those songs that are strong enough tend to be the most realistic and it tends to show up in musicals. Love is part of the batch as well due to breakups and unrequited love situations. Heartbreaking and sad songs tend to be these beautiful songs. They can make you cry and can be so powerful that they can give you goosebumps. Of course, these emotions are going to hurt, but when you fall in love with those type of songs, you slowly fall in love with the emotions and is connected to the emotion connection you end up feeling. I began to understand the negative emotions starting in middle school and now as a college student, they truly matured and are more capable than ever before and are more wonderful to feel.  Still it is quite hard to describe why I love feeling the negative emotions in the first place.

  1. The positive and negative emotions are important for maintaining a balance and for creating a story. If you just have negative emotions, then it’ll be a miserable time. If you just have only positive emotions, there isn’t really any conflict to be resolved and thus, there isn’t much of a story! The two emotions definitely go hand-in-hand!

    1. They really do. Some musicals work with just the positive emotions like Music Man. But the ones with more conflict need to have both positive and negative since the show requires for it more. They are a balance. Every musical has positive emotions in it. Wonderful comes from both sides of the coin.
