Melodious chimes, rhythmic notes, and tranquilizing lyrics swim through the cerebral cortex like a wakeful dream. Music enables to call the listener's entire being; it is medicine delivered most divinely. One of the most commercially successful music genre is pop music that includes a good rhythm, a catchy melody, and are easy to remember and sing along to.

Driven by the classical guitar's soft sound, pop music hijacks the brain in exceptional demeanors. The upbeat music cranks joy right up and sparkles the eyes of the listener. Popular music stimulates oxytocin – a hormone related to positive, happy feelings.

Furthermore, the sudden hits of dopamine right after listening to pop music trigger a state of euphoria, taking you on a journey of pleasure.

After a stress test, it was found that the music-listening groups recovered much faster than the no-music groups, helping researchers better understand how music benefits the body.

Like pop, soft and light music genres appear to be great for reducing negative emotions and regulating anger and depression.
