Why Music May Move Us to Tears

Many of you may have already seen this, but it deserves a place in the Music Makes Sense archives!  

The Wall Street Journal piece breaks down emotional music into the parts that really affect us.  Very interesting and well worth thinking about.  They also point to research that seems to back up the theories.  Adele may have been an unwitting purveyor of some sad songs that turned into hits because they fit the formula, or maybe good song writers and singers just naturally create what science is only now figuring out!
