Why Do We Listen To Sad Songs?

There’s a little bit of everything for someone to feel something. These sad songs are supposed to be sad so that we feel sad while listening to sad songs. Sometimes it’s good to be sad. There’s a release of all that tension and built-up emotion that’s been compounding.

“In general, sad music is thought to cause us to experience sadness, which is considered an unpleasant emotion. As a result, the question arises as to why we listen to sad music if it evokes sadness. One possible answer to this question is that we may feel positive emotions when we listen to sad music,” explains Ai Kawakami, Kiyoshi Furukawa, Kentaro Katahira, and Kazuo Okanoya of the Tokyo University of the Arts.

Did you know that you cry less as you get older? The human eye and more specifically the basal tear production slows down as we age.
