There have been many psychological studies that state that pop music is actually bad for our brains. It states that it will gradually ruin a person’s mind, and it will make them lose their creativity. When we consider the fact that lyrical differentiation is very relatively unimportant to the success of a pop song, the artist put a lot of emphasis on the beats of the song. They stopped caring about the lyrics decades ago. I am not exactly stating horrible opinions about pop music, but I am trying to put forth what I read in a psychological study. Pop songs have been really popular for being a repetitive cool beat machine. Yes, we all know that top songs can be quite repetitive. Once you start listening to a lot of them, all of them start sounding the same. I can say with absolute certainty that some pop artists have completely lost their creativity.
Can you remember how pop songs were, back in Michael Jackson’s time?
It was glorious. Can we say the same, today?
I would like to add that jazz music is the complete opposite. It provides a multitude of different cognitive benefits that will completely enrich our minds when we are listening to jazz music. One of the major benefits of jazz music is that it enriches our brain. To completely and fully appreciate jazz music, we need to properly listen to the instruments that are being played. We need to think outside the box. There is no definitive answer as to how a person can appreciate jazz music. Usually, we find jazz music in restaurants and lobbies, playing in the background, because it has been scientifically proven that it puts our mind at ease and it relaxes us. A lot of studies have confirmed that jazz music trains our creativity, and they also state that it helps us think in unique ways, which fuel our creativity even more.
Jazz music has done a fantastic job when it comes to supporting musicians. A major problem that pop stars face is that it does not get the same amount of attention all the time. But, jazz music enthusiasts are very loyal to the artists. Jazz music also gives the musicians a fair amount of focus when they are playing the songs. Even the enthusiast stay loyal to the artists who they love.
Since jazz music helps us get relaxed, it has been proven that it has a lot of mood-boosting capabilities. Jazz music, in particular, has been recognised for having therapeutic characteristics.
The next time you turn the radio on and hear a jazz song playing, tell yourself to properly listen to it and appreciate it the way it is supposed to be appreciated.
