(I Get) A Good Feeling

(I Get) A Good Feeling

Why do we get a good feeling when we hear music we love? Well, part of the pleasure in music is rooted in pattern recognition, one of our most basic instruments for survival in a world where paying attention confers the greatest advantage. Patterns tell you whether things are known & safe or strange & dangerous; becoming expert at pattern recognition is a fundamental skill & every pattern recognized is a little triumph. Recognizing music’s patterns is therefore innately satisfying.

Or you could think of it this way: your preferences are a lock; when you encounter music you love, it's like the key that fits your lock has just been inserted in your mind. We even say "it clicks!" You feel the fit & it's the most satisfying thing imaginable. Well, OK, maybe there is ONE exception to that...

This session recaps the tunes that really clicked for me in 2012 (Lana, Mikky, Poliça, Pretty Lights) along with the usual lesser-known treasures from the crate.
