What is it about certain songs that instantly transform us into misty eyed puddles of melancholy? Scientists have proven that emotionally intense music, whether happy or sad, releases dopamine into the pleasure/reward centres of our brain. It's a type of benign addiction. Paradoxically, the sadder the song the more we crave it. We've all been there. British psychologist John Scolba in a famous study in the 1090's found that the majority of music contained a music device known as an "appoggiatura". Adele's Someone Like You is dripping with appoggiaturas. Put several appoggiaturas together into a three minute pop song and you're into "Oh God I'm tearing up"....territory. Adele and Dan Wilson co wrote Someone Like You about a desperately heartbreaking end of a relationship. Adele was feeling really sad at the time and it was a case of walking her back through the experience. When we hear the song we walk in her shoes.Yes, there may be appoggiaturas, volume shifts, expansion frequencies and tension/release dynamics to play with. But what Adele really does on Someone Like You is to sing her heart out....honestly and painfully.
Often we are operating from our past- past hurts and experiences. In order to attract new and fulfilling relationships into our life we must first let go of the past, cast off old habits and resentments and adopt an attitude of positivity and belief in a better future.
When you meet someone for the first time try to look at them through new eyes, see them as they really are. Listen attentively, look closely, pay attention to everything and you will find that you will enjoy the experience more, and really get to know the person. Most of the time we are watching for patterns or signals that we recognise from our past, which in turn closes doors and puts up barriers to new opportunities and relationships. The most important thing to remember is that this is a new experience, a new person and possibly the start of something beautiful and exciting.
When someone is in love they are at their most attractive. The reason for this is because they are happy, on a biological level their body is producing extra levels of feel good hormones (endorphins). We call it love. It feels like love. But the most exhilarating of all human emotions is probably nature’s beautiful way of keeping the human species alive and reproducing.
With an irresistible cocktail of chemicals, our brain entices us to fall in love. We believe we’re choosing a partner. But we may merely be the happy victims of nature’s lovely plan.
