New Delhi, March 2: The best way to express happiness or joy over something you can’t stop smiling about is “MUSIC”.
Music has power to not only reflect our moods but also shape them, as well as shape our memories of certain times and places.
Songs that make us smile, that remind us of good times, that can turn a bad mood on its head. Happy Songs to Get Up and Dance To.
The study, published in the journal Memory & Cognition, detailed how participants accessed autobiographical memories after listening to unknown pieces of music varying in intensity or emotional content.
A relationship between the type of musical cue and whether it triggered the remembrance of a positive or a negative memory was also noted.
The researchers found that happy or peaceful music helped the participants recall positive memories, while scary or sad music brought up negative memories to their minds.
