The Mozart Effect — the notion that listening to classical music will turn your infant or toddler into an intellectual titan — has been largely debunked. But a growing body of research suggests music can play an important role in certain aspects of health care, including pain management.

A newly published study from Mexico reports repeated listening to certain classical works — including one by Mozart — helps ease the debilitating symptoms of clinical depression.


Of course what I’m really looking for is something that will cause me to have a great desire to go out and work in my yard. I wonder what music would do that?

    Um… Nights in the Gardens of Spain? Grand Canyon Suite? Outdoor Overture? Pines of Rome? Rosenkavalier? Roses from the South? L’horloge de Flore?

  2. Oh, yes, the Flower Clock! I’m sure that’ll get Patty right out there 🙂

  3. Hmmm. Good suggestions. But it’s not working.

    Feel free to drop by and play the music and see if YOU want to do the work. Really.
