Science is reducing us and all our fabulously affecting human emotions to a few chemical recipes. A prime ingredient of love and attraction, it seems, is oxytocin, release of which in the body at orgasm creates lasting bonds between the actors in the exchange … (for more thoughts on the downside of this phenomenon, as well as all the shout-outs for this show’s music, see the complete post at http://www.beatconscious.org/ )
Music, if you feel it deeply, also triggers the release of oxytocin, strengthening the bond between you and the person you're with when you're listening to music you love; that's why we think of that lover when we hear "our song" … that's why some folks never outgrow the music they loved back when they first realized that the world around them was a grab-bag of potential mates. It’s the alchemy of attraction, chemistry you don’t need school to study.
Here, attraction gets its proper respect, as do new releases and a couple of classics from the crates.
