Psychological Benefits of Music

Does Good Music Have a Psychological Benefit?

When your favorite tune comes on the radio, it can make you feel like dancing. When you hear that tragic country-western ballad, it can make you feel like crying.

What is the effect of music, really? Is it all in our head, so to speak, or does music actually control how we feel?

While not every song is going to flip your neurology upside-down, music does influence your brain chemistry.

Listening to pleasant music can release serotonin, the neurotransmitter thought to be responsible for feelings of happiness. This same effect has even been observed to reduce perception of physical pain.

Music also engages the hippocampus-- the memory and emotion center of the brain-- leaving a sonic imprint. One minute, you're listening to a song, and the next you're remembering feelings you experienced a decade ago, as if they happened yesterday.

Because music is such a potent tool for altering brain chemistry, we think that you should be able to listen to that music with the best quality possible.

The new Lincoln MKX features the Revel Ultima 19-speaker sound system. Each of those speakers is carefully balanced to deliver an optimal mix, so each aural detail reaches your ear at the right time. The goal: create an in-cabin experience to replicate live quality music.

Do you think we've achieved it? Test drive a new Lincoln MKX from our new inventory at Williams Ford Lincoln, and let us know if you like what you hear.
