Music is everywhere, whether you see it or not. Have you ever watched a creepy movie on mute? Without the intense music, the movie seems pretty silly, rather than horrific. During interviews or speeches on video, there is usually mild music to keep the viewer engaged. Either way, music is used to keep the viewer or listener interested.

According to Medical News Today, “By analyzing 72 randomized controlled trials involving more than 7,000 patients who received surgery, researchers found those who were played music after their procedure reported feeling less pain and anxiety than those who did not listen to music, and they were also less likely to need pain medication.” This is one of the best reasons to listen to music. Especially in middle school, Covid restrictions have caused many people to stress about grades, sports, or life in general. Also, people like to listen to music, and there is a wide variety of genres to choose to listen to or play to.

After reading results from a survey taken by over 70 students, here at Centennial, results reveal that the most popular genre of music is rap. According to google dictionary, rap is “a type of popular music… in which words are recited rapidly and rhythmically over a prerecorded, typically electronic instrumental backing”. The other close second music genre to rap is pop. According to google dictionary, pop is “commercial popular music, in particular accessible, tuneful music of a kind popular since the 1950s and sometimes contrasted with rock, soul, or other forms of popular music.” Listening to your favorite type or genre of music can boost your mood. This helps with confidence, mindset, and attitude. When you have confidence, a growth mindset, and a positive attitude, then you can do your best work with ease.

Music is stressless and can boost anyone’s mood and effort. In conclusion, music is used for the benefit of everyone.
