Music!

Just started reading This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession by Daniel Levitin. Although it's hard to give a thumbs up or down after just a handful of pages, it's certainly interesting so far. For what promises to be a "scientific" book, Levitin has an accessible writing style. I'm particularly interested in any insight into why my brain seems to be so wired to music. Ever since the advent of the iPod -- which gave me pinpoint control over my musical environment -- music in some form illustrates and enlivens my waking hours. It's become hard to work in silence; although on the flip side, I now find it hard to fall asleep listening to music.
