Why is it that whenever we’re feeling a little low, we can turn to our Ipods, radios,or CDs for a source of happiness? Do our music choices really influence how we feel? In recent studies at the University of Illinois, psychologists have proven that ” there does exist mood effect in music. Ever since early experiments on psychological effects of music, studies have confirmed the function of music in changing people’s mood” ( Xiao Hu ,University of Illinois). Keeping this study in mind, I suggest finding a certain genre of music that can make you smile on your best days and make you feel stronger on your worst.
