Some Pop Songs can relieve chronic pain: Study

BRITISH pharmacy chain Lloyds has released results of a study which indicates people suffering persistent pain actually feel better after listening to music.

The study of 1500 people found pop music was the most effective pain reliever, followed by classical, then rock or indie music. The songs with the highest pain-relieving powers reported were:

1. Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simon and Garfunkel)

2. Angels (Robbie Williams)

3. Albatross (Fleetwood Mac)

4. Candle In The Wind (Elton John)

5. Easy (The Commodores)

Music seems to have an even bigger impact for younger people, with two-thirds those questioned aged 16 to 24 claiming it helps them manage pain, according to the study.

The results have stunned some commentators, including The Guardian’s music editor, who said: “This slightly contradicts my own survey, which found that 100% of all respondents (sample size: one) thought ‘Candle in the Wind’ induced chronic pain, but there you go.”
