Why Do People Love Music?

Music has always been an important part of human communication. Since the earliest days of recorded music, people have been communicating through music. Even the very earliest cultures in the form of flutes and other wind instruments were producing sounds to communicate. It is obvious then that music and sounds from nature are associated with emotion. And if you think about it, we all know that emotions have a way of making us do things that we wouldn’t normally do. It is in this sense that we can see how music is so important to society.

As we have seen, humans have been making music for thousands of years. However, the advent of new media such as television has changed the way we listen to music. For example, in the 1980’s American culture started to take music more seriously. Suddenly music was seen as a social commentary, and artists’ words and expressions became important to mainstream audiences. This new focus on music, combined with a general reduction in literacy rates, has meant that today the influence of music and its effect on society have become much more diluted.

Today, we are able to listen to music without understanding a word of what is being said. This type of entertainment is referred to as ‘entertainment’. The impact of this form of entertainment has changed human society forever. We are exposed to music on a daily basis and can respond and interact with it emotionally. So, the question that we need to answer is why humans love music and why they should continue to do so.
