That's one thing I learned from this interesting article "The scientific mystery of why humans love music." The main thrust of the article is that scientific study has not yet determined why humans like music so much, given that our survival is not dependent upon it. I like how the current scientific hypotheses are in line with what many musicians have been saying for a long time: Music is a language, essentially an arrangement of sounds into patterns. The scientists are hypothesizing that's why we like music, because pattern recognition and verbal communication are essential to our survival."Studies have shown that when we listen to music, our brains release dopamine, which in turn makes us happy."
