WATCH: Undercover Cast Of ‘Lion King’ Shocks Subway Riders, I Couldn’t Believe This!

The science is there: music does indeed make you happier.  According to studies done by Northwestern, when you listen to stimulating or upbeat music, you are happier.


Music like this ridiculously powerful rendition of “Circle of Life” causes a rush of dopamine (the brain’s feel-good neurotransmiter) to the rear and frontal stratium portions of the brain.  In other words, you feel real good. Props to the Lion King (which recently became Broadway’s first $1 billion show) and their cast for spreading the smiles in a powerful way.
