Human brains wired to love favorite songs

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

There is a good chance your grandparents didn't like what music your parents listened to, and your parents may not get what you like today. The difference may be about more than just age or a pop culture gap but about how our brains are wired.

If the Rolling Stones were everything for you when you were a teen, guess what? They're probably still your favorite today.

Dr. Ezriel Kornel is a clinical professor of neurosurgery at Weil-Cornell Medical Center. He says from the time we first hear a song our brains start to get attached.

As pointed out in a recent Slate.com article, there may be a stronger biological connection to the songs we like in our formative years like early teens and 20s.

Turns out, there's a bit of science behind that age-old saying passed down from generation to generation that parents just don't understand.
