What Makes Music Addictive?
And does it cause Stupidity?
I know that In ancient times music was part of Life. But with Technology its not the same.
When I hear a song for the first time and I really like it I play it like 5 to 10 times.
But then I forget completely how it was why?

Music might be "addictive" to some people because
scientists have found that it is strongly connected to
memory. When we have a strong memory, music
can help us to remember a lot of things that we might
otherwise forget. Just play something that your parents
liked when you were little and the memories come
flooding back with a lot of otherwise forgotten details.
And music does not cause stupidity. As a matter of fact.
listening to classical music can help make you smarter.
Have you had a dose of classical today?
And finally, I think you forget what you were listening to
after playing it about 10 times because you have nothing
to connect you to the music. You're probably listening to
songs with your eyes closed, while lying on your back, or
just listening while walking down the street, or sitting
around with nothing happening while you listen.
You will remember a song if there is some other connection
with it, besides just listening.
