Music is one of the most known things throughout the world, no matter what kind of music it is. Usually if you see someone with airpods, headphones, or earbuds in, they tend to have music playing. So, why does everyone like to listen to it so much?

Music is one of the best ways to put someone in a better mood if they are having a bad day. Music can also make chores just a bit more fun and bearable especially if it is the less liked chores like dishes or cleaning your room.

The way the music you are listening to sounds can change your mood, which is most likely why it is so addicting. According to psychologytoday.com, the article “Why Is Music So Pleasurable?” by Shahram Heshmat Ph.D. says, “Much of music’s pleasure comes from the patterns of melody, rhythm, and sudden changes.” This means that most of the time it is not the words that make the music so addicting, it is the melody and how the music sounds; however, this is not always the case. Music can also be addicting just because of the word choice.

Music is known all around the world with different genres. New music comes out almost everyday, and the songs just get better and better. Everyone’s favorite genre, song, and artists can change constantly which begs the question, what are your current favorites?
