Music That is Better Than…You Know…

If you were offered the choice of a romantic night and spending the night listening to QUEEN’S “Bohemian Rhapsody”, I would guess that you could turn down the volume on the music and turn up the romance, right? Well, according to a new study done by the Toronto Sun, you would be wrong.

They study included 2,000 “music fans” between the ages of 18-91 picked the songs and more than 40% of them (i.e. two out of five) claimed listening to music is “more arousing” than nookie. The music psychologist who conducted the survey says,

“From neuro-scientific research we know that music can activate the same pleasure centers of the brain that also respond to much less abstract rewards such as food, drugs or sex.”

Is it a specific kind of music? To give some clarity, Queen songs for one were high on the list. Respondents were asked to choose songs they considered “better than sex” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” topped the list. Three other Queen songs made the Top 20.

If you are wanting to see the list, check out the Top 20…and hide the iPod, when you are in the mood:

  1. “Bohemian Rhapsody”, Queen
  2. “Sex on Fire”, Kings of Leon
