Study: Deep down, we love our parents’ music

Pretty much everyone has a soft spot for particular pop songs from the past, however cheesy they may seem today. These tunes, which trigger positive memories and produce warm feelings, tend to be hits from our adolescence and early adulthood, according to Salon.com.



But here’s a surprise: We respond with similar pleasure to the much older songs that served as background music to our parents and possibly their parents.

Newly published research suggests musical nostalgia is a multigenerational phenomenon. It seems the songs we love aren't just the ones we discovered, but also the ones our parents enjoyed, and presumably played in the home, according to Salon.com.
