>> interesting study we found out yesterday at the university of barcelona. 5% of the people don't react when they hear good music.

>> they were doing a scientific study on people to see their ability to get pleasure from hearing music. and actually found out there is a condition called specific musical anhedonia, the inability to find any pleasure in music. it does exist, sad to say, in 5% of people affected. they found when they played songs like "september," people's heart rate didn't move, didn't get excited at all, nothing was happening. that was interesting to us. we want to know your pick me up songs. what do you hear like this that makes us feel good instantly?
