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?
