Some people enjoy music so much that the sensations can be compared to sex. How does a good song move the body and mind in this way, asks David Robson.
Gee. I feel like I'm missing out on something.
I have a friend that gets this all the time from good singers. I never really understood it. Interesting to see that it's a little common!
The song Justice by TUNEDEF used to do this for me, but then I had to switch headphones and I haven't found any that are loud and high quality enough to give me this reaction since. But listening to some of his other songs too in a quiet environment with the headphones on and loud can still be similarly nice, just not to the same extent. But this is the reason I listen to a lot of EDM, since it gives me this feeling more than most other music.
That song, if you're interested.
Yes, often. The theme from A Summer Place always does it for me. :)
Edit: It's the high strings. Love them.
Wow...they should put 18 and older for some songs!
Is this like aural sex?
