    is it ecstacy or vibration due to resonance, or simple mental activity. why brain becomes unable to control a person, and becomes involved itself in this purposeless activity.

    i am not against music, which i myself enjoy a lot. so dont think me as a negative person. it is simple question from my mind

    Are you referring to the rhythmic movements sometimes known as "dancing" or something else?

    Have you thought of seeing a doctor? Or do you listen to music really, really loud?

    but music creates ripples deep inside body,
    Any evidence for that? It wouldn't surprise me for the neural brain activity as a product of processing the sound, but I doubt it's true for the rest of the body.

    I suspect this is about things like the compulsion to tap one's foot to the beat of a song or rapping on a table with one's fingers or some such.

    I would guess that it has to do with the way the human brain learns. We like to repeat things because that is how we learn. Repetitive sounds, repetitive motions, consistency, predictability, anticipation. These all get activated when listening to music. Especially beats that we have heard before.

    That said, this compulsion to tap your foot, etc. is not consistent between people or musical genres (depending on your tastes in music). And I tap my foot sometimes to nothing at all.

    I assumed he was referring the "makes your hairs stand on end"/"Shiver" response, to a beautiful piece of music.

    Ah, if so then I think it is what is known technically as a Good Question (in other words, we don't know the answer).

    Music is clearly a form of communication, between performer and audience. It probably dates back to tribal days, where people sat around a camp fire in early evening, and talked, told stories, and otherwise communicated. Songs and melodious sounds would have developed as a part of this process. There would be an evolutionary development towards increased musical skill, since a good musician becomes more attractive sexually. Just look at how rock stars today 'score' on many young women.

    As part of this communication by music, people develop the ability to respond on an emotional level, especially to quality music.

    noe brother you should understand what i am saying. it is pleasant feeling, not any psyciatrist type feeling. it remind me that i am part of nature and it invokes energy causing me to do more work and feel good in life. it actually cures me.

    while listening to music i feel newness. why this ? what type of Stimulus is this? what is its purpose?

    and what is the reason that music is baned in some religions?

    more the body parts are involved more you will gain enjoyment. as seeing video is better than audio music. and even singing myself is more entertaining. effects becomes widespread.
