Here we go...

Good to know: "Background music does not improve your ability to concentrate but will help you when you're at the gym."

Be careful what you listen to during emotional moments in your life: "Your favorite song is probably your favorite because you associate it with an emotional event in your life."

I hope a life changing event never happens to me in an elevator...

I was thinking the same thing! Or in a dentist's office.

Worse, your favorite song will probably be determined by what you listen to in high school or college. Thank goodness I didn't grow up in the early 2000s bubblegum/boy band era.

Every era invents its own boy bands.

The 80s had New Edition and New Kids on the Block.

The 90s had Bell Biv Devoe and the Funky Bunch.

Then came NSync and the Backstreet Boys.

These days it's Justin Bieber and One Direction.

Years will come and go, but boy bands are an invariant...

Not to mention Boyz II Men, Color Me Badd, All4One, etc.

Ah, Chris, now you're bringing back some memories. :)

Fortunately, we can still find all of these on YouTube.

How about a little "Motownphilly"?

Also, I forgot about Menudo.

How could I forget Menudo???

So what you're saying is, MY era has not yet arrived... I will be a benevolent boy band god, I promise...
