Stuck With Me
If music gives you goosebumps, your brain might be special
Do you ever get that feeling when listening to a great song that makes all the hairs on your arm stand on end?
Experiencing sensations like goose bumps or a lump in the throat when listening to music is quite rare and unique.
Matthew Sachs a former undergraduate at Harvard, last year studied individuals who get chills from music to see how this feeling was triggered.
Why you can’t get that one song out of your head: The science of earworms
“Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga. “Don't Stop Believin' ” by Journey. Katy Perry's “California Gurls.”
If you spend the rest of the day with the words “Just a small town girl/living in a lonely world” or “Ra ra ah-ah-ah/Ro ma ro-mah-mah” running an endless loop through your head, we're sorry. But know that you are not alone. Psychologists who are trying to understand why songs get stuck in your head found that these are three of the most commonly complained-about earworms.
And they all have something in common, says Durham University music psychologist Kelly Jakubowski, the lead author of a study published Thursday in the journal Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity and the Arts.
“There are certain features of a melody that make a song more likely to become an earworm,” she said. After conducting a statistical analysis of thousands of earworm submissions from an online survey, she and her colleagues found that songs that are up-tempo, with a familiar melody set apart by a catchy, unique interval pattern, are especially persistent.
