Music is an incredibly powerful tool for expressing many emotions. Going through a rough time? Stick some James Blunt on and let it all out. Need to find a little motivation? Lizzo has got you sorted. Fancy getting steamy beneath the sheets and wanna get your partner in the mood? You know Marvin Gaye is going to get you there… Or maybe it’s The Weeknd for you? Perhaps some electronic hard house? – whatever your taste, it often has the same effect.
That’s because music has been proven to flood your thinker with dopamine, which is the chemical that makes you feel good – the same way as chocolate or sex does or even going to the gym… if you can peel yourself away from binge-watching Motherland that is!
