Why they call it "feel good" music

by wrm@mws.phxcoxmail.com on 4/29/2021

One of my goals in performing the Summer Breeze Music Project repertoire out in public is to help people feel good.  To kindle warm feelings and fond memories from that "Feel Good" time in pop music history is important to me.  There have been all sorts of medical and scientific studies showing the benefits of listening to your favorite music.   Music can absolutely be theraputic.  In fact listening to music as a form of therapy is vital to those who have medical conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, stress, anger issues, and depression.  Listening or participating in music can lower blood pressure. Improve sleeping, reduce anxiety, improve your mood, lower stress, and even make you forget your pains. In short, listening to music is one of the best relaxation techniques.

Billy Joel said that "music in itself is healing".  Studies have shown that listening to or participating in making music actually raises the dopamine level which can relieve stress, anxiety, and depression.  Bob Marley once sang: “One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain.” 

Music can also stimulate the creative side of your brain while doing doing art.  So paint your masterpiece while listening to Mozart.  Listening to music improves your performance in athletics too.  So, crank up the Theme from Rocky while you run, swim, bike, or lift.   Feel free to listen to my covers of many feel good songs which will hopefully make you feel good.

In closing, here are a few web articles which reinforce these findings.
