According to a study published in Nature Neuroscience, music has the same pleasure-inducing effect on the brain as other feel-good experiences such as having orgasms and doing drugs.
Researchers studied images of the brain while subjects listened to music.

The study showed that, when we jam out, our brains are flooded with dopamine, the pleasure chemical — the same chemical instigated by more scandalous vices.
