Does goth music do this for you too or am I just weird?

I have this weird thing about my brain where listening to darkwave, coldwave, and etherealwave helps my brain focus. Its the most effective thing at regulating me emotionally, calming/relaxing me, helping me concentrate/focus, and soothing my bodys adrenaline response(ptsd symptoms). It clears up brain fog pretty effectively, too. Helps me process information as well/helps my memory.

I've never ever heard of gothic genres as helping someone that much(mentally, emotionally) just by their sound alone(compared to classical). It doesn't matter what the lyrics are, just the sound alone massively helps me emotionally and mentally. When I'm upset, hurting, anxious, scared, in fight or flight, nervous system dysregulated, just listening to the genre for about 20 min fixes everything. You'd think that listening to "depressing/melancholy" music would make things worse , but it does quite the opposite! I'd go so far as to say it's comforting.

All the things people say about how good classical music is for your brain is exactly all the things darkwave/coldwave/etherealwave does for me for some reason. Meanwhile classical doesn't do much to help me.

Is it because my brain really fucks with the music in particular or do you think there's a specific reason why it'd help so much?

Additionally, does anyone else have this too with a goth genre? Or is my brain just a special breed

Silence is Platinum – Sisters Bootleg

By far the best made Sisters bootleg I have ever seen! A “limited” edition that includes a 2×7” board recording, show review, and poster.

Unfortunately, the board recording is kind of “meh,” but it’s a really amazing part of scene history.

i hate being a goth woman

i hate going outside dressed the way i like. i usually don’t care what people think of the way i dress, i get plenty of looks and that’s what to be expected. everywhere i go, i either get people staring in awe or in complete disgust.

i hate being a goth because of pervs who fetishise goth women. the amount of times ive had old men come up to me on the streets blowing kisses, the amount of men who catcall me even when my boyfriend is with me, or some random drug addicts trying to follow me home. im only 18. i hate it. i hate feeling so unsafe whenever i leave my apartment.

the looks i get is starting to get to me, it makes me feel insecure. my boyfriend took me out on a nice date outdoors and there were girls around my age giving me the most disgusting looks ive ever seen in my life, looking back and giggling, pointing at me. why is my fashion sense an excuse for people to treat me like i don’t have feelings or as though im some prostitute?? this is just a vent, i’m just so tired and feel like crying every time i get approached on the street or followed home.

I'm totally new to gothic music tho I think we all know the song "ligea" by them but they don't seems to be a well known band.

Do people know you label yourself as “goth” ?

It kinda weird for me all these labels i never understand what is the actual point of the labels. it feels realy weird saying "i'm goth" beacuse what i mean by goth does not what other people think goth is. i am recently find intrest in gothic sub culture but i could never imagine myself telling my mother hey mom im goth or something. it might be just me but it feels like a gender label. i mean it's only the kind of music you listen too so why there is a label to this ? i understand that this is a sub culture but it's just weird. no effence beacuse i feel pretty connected to the culture already but i keep it to myself.

It's funny beacuse my family know i find intrest in metal music as well so i don't know why it feels so diffrent if they will know i find intrest in the goth sub culture beacuse gothic music is nothing angry or heavy as metal. also my mother ask me if i'm freak because I asked for another shirt like the one I have with a skull i just like the fucking image what's worng with that
