Don't Fix It

I don’t know who this is fur

I was nosing around on Cracked yesterday and came upon a recent article entitled “5 Ways Your Taste in Music is Scientifically Programmed.” Number five was the familiar, or at least unsurprising, point that your brain can tell the difference between “sad” and “happy” notes, a fact anyone who’s ever listened to a piece in a minor key understands.

Speaking of minor keys, the article included this video. I find it deeply unsettling.

Isn’t that just weird? I know the A major is supposed to make me feel better about life, but it’s pretty much serving solely to freak me out. View the full article here.


About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.
