As an important part of our life, music could affect our mood states, being either in positive, negative, or neutral form. Subjective experiences would support this idea, when hearing a song on a radio or a rhythm on a ceremony, etc. Although universal effect of music is a controversial issue, it has been well documented that music influences our mood states. For over two decades, researchers have investigated the effect of music on mood states. The effect of the music on the mood is important not only for scientific curiosity but also for practical fields. Music has many applications in behavioural sciences apart from its therapeutic consequences. That is, music induces people to certain moods, and these mood changes cause the desired response in the individual. For example, people who listened to positive music were more flexible than the people who listened to neutral music.
