Why does certain music seem to go better with certain activities?  For example, when I am driving a truck or farm tractor, country music is the perfect background music, but when I once listened to classic music while working, it just felt weird , almost like an out of body experience?


Also in movies, they always play a certain type of music when someone is sneaking around, and there is always a certain type of music when the bad guy shows up.  Why is it so effective at setting the mood?  Are we preconditioned, or is it something else?

I have no idea why, but it is certainly the case. Every classical composer has a different mood, so that I can play chess or do a maths problem when listening to Mozart, but no way could I do this if Beethoven were in the background..

Guess we've been inspired by movies, it enhance a moment with some background music like i movies maybe?
