men and women. And also there was an interesting observation from punks step study, which was this quote many mistakenly believe that happiness in music is more influential in evoking the response than sadness. A series of correlation studies analyzing the subjective experience of chills in groups of students listening to a variety of musical pieces indicated that chills are related to the perceived emotional content of various selections with much stronger relations to perceived sadness than happiness. So according to concepts research here, sad music is more likely to cause free sons in reality. But when people are just sort of asked to speculate, they tend to believe that happy music causes it more. Isn't that fascinating? And it makes me wonder like could this be related to confusion in reflecting on your own experiences of free Sawn? Because maybe even though it actually happens to you more often with negative valence, aesthetic content, you know, sad music, sad movies, the experience itself is somehow pleasurable. So maybe you mistakenly believe it to be caused by more positive valence content in your memory at least. I don't know that that's the causal chain there, but that that mistake that people make is interesting. Yeah, definitely could be some sort of confirmation bias because even now when you said that I thought to myself, okay, what are all the examples I'm thinking of? They are 100% happy songs. I I and I think part of it, at least for me is there's perhaps something triumphant in a lot of the songs that creates the free song feeling in me. Um maybe a bit bombastic. I'm not going to apologize that I get tons of free song from Les Miserables. Uh but you know when when when do you hear the people sing comes on, I I get that feeling all over and there is something that is triumphant about that song, but there's a there's a subtlety to it. There's an ambiguity
