The Connection Between Music and Sociability

New research uncovers links between enjoyment of music and social interaction.

Taste in music varies considerably, but whatever people enjoy listening to, they often report an emotional response that has a touch of the physical to it. Maybe you feel beautiful music gives you the chills or makes your hair stand on end. Those descriptions are not just metaphors. We really do have physiological reactions in response to music.
