Science shows that there are 10 songs that make you happy


A cognitive neuroscientist decided to study the pop songs of the last fifty years to see what the effects they caused on people. In the investigation he discovered that there are songs that "make you feel good". Don´t Stop me now from Queen´s got the first place in songs that “feel good” followed by Dancing Queen of Abba. The study defined a list of songs that have more positive effects on people's behavior. Through a formula that evaluates the songs according to their lyrics, their tempo in strokes per minute and their key, a total of 126 songs with subjects from the United Kingdom were evaluated. The equation reflected the most effective songs to boost the mood, which are:

This research also reveals that there are a number of considerations to consider when composing a song, if you want it to cause positive effects on people. And is that the lyrics with festive themes remind happy times for what they feel better. Also the tempo is important, a rhythm of more than 150 strokes per minute unconsciously generates a feeling of energy. Thus, by means of this formula in which these three aspects are considered, the theme, the musical key and the tempo, it was possible to know how well they made the songs feel and which were the ones that generally make them feel better.
