"Musical frisson" is the phenomenon where music causes you to do what?
Have you ever been listening to a song and felt a chill run up your spine? Or perhaps goosebumps tickle your arms and shoulders? The experience is called musical frisson, a French term meaning "aesthetic chills," and it feels like waves of pleasure running over your skin. While scientists are still unlocking the secrets of this phenomenon, research has traced the origins of frisson to how we emotionally react to unexpected stimuli in our environment, particularly music. Studies have shown that roughly two-thirds of the population experience this effect.
