A delightful journey through the psychology and science of music, WHY YOU LOVE MUSIC is the perfect book for anyone who loves a tune. Music plays a hugely important role in our emotional, intellectual, and even physical lives. It impacts the ways we work, relax, behave, and feel. It can make us smile or cry, it helps us bond with the people around us, and it even has the power to alleviate a range of medical conditions. The songs you love (and hate, and even the ones you feel pretty neutral about) don't just make up the soundtrack to your life--they actually help to shape it. In WHY YOU LOVE MUSIC, scientist and musician John Powell dives deep into decades of psychological and sociological studies in order to answer the question "Why does music affect us so profoundly?" With his relaxed, conversational style, Powell explores all aspects of music psychology, from how music helps babies bond with their mothers to the ways in which music can change the taste of wine or persuade you to spend more in restaurants. WHY YOU LOVE MUSIC will open your eyes (and ears) to the astounding variety of ways that music impacts the human experience.

From the chief architect of the Pandora Radio’s Music Genome Project comes a definitive and groundbreaking examination of how your mind, body, and upbringing influence the music you love. Everyone loves music. But what is it that makes music so universally beloved and have such a powerful effect on us? In this sweeping and authoritative book, Dr. Nolan Gasser—a composer, pianist, and musicologist, and the chief architect of the Music Genome Project, which powers Pandora Radio—breaks down what musical taste is, where it comes from, and what our favorite songs say about us. Dr. Gasser delves into the science, psychology, and sociology that explains why humans love music so much; how our brains process music; and why you may love Queen but your best friend loves Kiss. He sheds light on why babies can clap along to rhythmic patterns and reveals the reason behind why different cultures around the globe identify the same kinds of music as happy, sad, or scary. Using easy-to-follow notated musical scores, Dr. Gasser teaches music fans how to become engaged listeners and provides them with the tools to enhance their musical preferences. He takes readers under the hood of their favorite genres—pop, rock, jazz, hip hop, electronica, world music, and classical—and covers songs from Taylor Swift to Led Zeppelin to Kendrick Lamar to Bill Evans to Beethoven, and through their work, Dr. Gasser introduces the musical concepts behind why you hum along, tap your foot, and feel deeply. Why You Like It will teach you how to follow the musical discourse happening within a song and thereby empower your musical taste, so you will never hear music the same way again.

A fantastic debut from a HILARIOUS and brilliantly ORIGINAL NEW VOICE in women's fiction . . . 'I loved it. It's an absolute joy . . . I finished the book with a huge smile on my face' BETH O'LEARY, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Flatshare 'A dazzling debut. Christina has a fresh, fun voice - I laughed and cried in abundance!' HEIDI SWAIN, Sunday Times bestselling author My brother's getting married in a few weeks and asked for help picking a song for his first dance. I suggested Kiss's 'Love's a Slap in the Face'. It didn't go down well. When she was a teenager, Zoë Frixos fell in love with Simon Baxter, her best friend and the boy next door. But his family moved to America before she could tell him how she felt and, like a scratched record, she's never quite moved on. Now, almost twenty years later, Simon is heading back to London, newly single and as charming as ever . . . But as obstacles continue to get in her way - Simon's perfect ex-girlfriend, her brother's big(ish) fat(ish) Greek wedding, and an obnoxious publicist determined to ruin her career - Zoë begins to wonder whether, after all these years, she and Simon just aren't meant to be. What if, despite what all the songs and movies say, your first love isn't always all it's cracked up to be? What if, instead Zoë and Simon are forever destined to shuffle around their feelings for each other, never quite getting the steps right . . . With a smart, relatable central character and razor-sharp wit, Love Songs for Sceptics is perfect for fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Lucy Vine and Lindsey Kelk. 'Brilliantly written, Love Songs for Sceptics is warm, engaging and so funny. I am officially a huge fan and can't wait for more from Christina' LUCY VINE 'Christina is a breath of fresh air, and her book throbs with fun and sentiment. A wry modern eye and a sparkling debut' JULIET ASHTON, author of The Sunday Lunch Club 'Engaging, relatable and brilliantly funny!' JOANNA BOLOURI, author of Relight My Fire 'An exciting new talent. Funny, sharp and real - it'll make your heart sing' LAURA KEMP, author of The Year of Surprising Acts of Kindness 'I loved this book. Christina's debut is funny, relatable, and smart. And also made me hungry for Greek food!' CATHERINE BENNETTO, author of How Not to Fall in Love Actually
