Absolutely. Consciously or unconsciously. Though I'm usually conscious when I play records. I meant unconscious in the "Freudian" sense, not the blitzed on substances sense. (I don't partake of anything any more).

Agreed, I love my vinyl and crave it, but am “lazy” at the e end of the workday and settle for streaming. As much as I enjoy the spontaneous selection of streaming, I find the vinyl more rewarding. But as you mentioned the “ritual” of vinyl playback can be discouraging when tired and wanting to just sit back and listen.
A valid point Elizabeth.
In my case my mood usually does not dictate the genre just the format.
And when I'm REALLY lazy I just hit shuffle and play on my saved streamed favourites.
I let Qobuz choose the genre for me in that case.
I really do not have any set routine for type of music related to time of day, I am as happy blaring out rock at 8am as I am at 8pm.
I feel like music can affect you in so many ways. When you hear a song with a happy melody, it can change your mood; it can change your day. (copy/paste via google)
