    Hi all,

    Reading a newspaper, I found this,

    Listening to classical music demands more of the brain

            Preference for classical music or pop has something to do with
    the power of the brain.
    Says Dr. Raj Persaud of the Maudsley Hospital in London.
    Persaud established by patients with demention, by whom the power of
    the brain decreased that they bend their preference for classic to pop.
    And not the other way round.
    In other words:- the appreciation of classical music demands more of the

    " You need more grey cells to appreciate classical music and not so
    much to appreciate popmusic; when you loose some grey cells, musical
    taste changes accordingly " says Persaud, who for his claim can count
    upon the support of many other scientists.

                                                                                    ( Belga)

    Would this be of some interest to the list !?

    My first personal remark would be the following,
    What would Persaud have told us about the song " Bohemian Rhapsody "
    of the group Queen_ an evergreen combination of pop and classical music !?
    Split brains !?

    Best regards,


    ( I am, because we are) pop- minded
