Scientists are still debating the validity of “The Mozart Effect” – the notion that listening to the music of Amadeus Mozart was the primary reason 12 test subjects performed better on an IQ test than test subjects who either listened to relaxation music..or complete silence. As a southerner who has never set foot in a laboratory, I’ll declare myself an expert on this topic.

Because when I listen to Mozart’s music, I feel smart. I welcome leatherbound books. I feel an urge to fuss with my tuxedo. The rhythmic motion wakes up my brain. The gentle instrumentation gives me room to think. And the emotional tenderness brings my guard down. I go into what some call a “teachable moment”. I think those scientists were onto something.

The 18 tracks in this week’s Serious Thinking Collection #746 contain those essential ingredients I mentioned. These beautfully crafted tracks will prepare the brains of your audience to receive complex, important messages……or an IQ test.
