"A part of the striatum known as the caudate was involved during the anticipation phase. But during the peak emotional response, a different striatum area known as the nucleus accumbens was involved."

Music is a drug.

If someone keeps playing a song over and over until it becomes a compulsion, and they can't function without music (but they're ok with that), does it qualify as addiction?

Interesting, their mention of getting chills while listening to certain music. This happens to me, also when I am watching certain films. When my mind gets really carried away by a great song, film, or a brilliant concept, not only do I get chills but it can cause me have a sneezing fit, for example sneezing up to 20 times in a row.

This must be why I've been obsessed with music since I was a kid, and will listen to songs over and over again, lol! I treat my 120 gig ipod like some sort of religious idol :cool:

Very interesting, I sort of knew this already was true...

I am completely addicted to music.
Let me give you a hint>
200 gb of music, 12 playlists on youtube containing around 500+ songs each :D:D:D

Plus, I produce music, go to festivals, and find music helps with everything. I cannot live without it.

Wow I am not surprised by this claim. I love music. It's one of the few things that makes me feel genuinely happy. I just 'feel' it. I love seeing live music too. I totally go off too - dancing and moshing. I'm nearly 35 but act like I'm 15 when I hear my
favourite music.

I also remember music, the timing and lyrics very well I reckon much better than the average person. I grew up hearing the Beatles and hadn't heard their songs in over 15 years. A collegue recently played some of their songs and I sang all of the lyrics and could even 'play' the music - if you count pretending to drum with your hands and 'air' guitar!
