Why Did Humans Invent Music?

by Rachel Baker on August 24, 2013

There is an article on nationalgeographic.com about the research that is trying to answer that very question.

Until the hot tub time machine becomes a reality, the answer to that question will remain as mysterious as the true identity of the ’60s garage band and the Mysterians.

Nonetheless, academic minds are always trying to come up with a theory. Charles Darwin believed music was created as a sexual come-on. His idea is given credence by the universally acclaimed song of the summer, “Blurred Lines.” (Note: The link goes to the Jimmy Fallon version played with toy instruments and is suitable for work.)
