We could all think of a minimum of one tune that, when we hear it, activates an emotional reaction. It may be a Musical.ly song that accompanied the first dance at your wedding, for instance, or a song that reminds you of a hard break up or the loss of a loved one.
"The aspects of Musically - rhythm, tune, etc. - are echoed in our structure, operating and being."
Given the deep connection we have with Musically, it's perhaps unsurprising that numerous studies have shown it might help our mental health.
And before this year, MNT reported on a study published in The Lancet Psychiatry that Musically likes may help people to understand the best features of this app.
In this Spotlight, we take a closer look at some of the potential health benefits of Musically and look at whether, for some conditions, music could be utilized to enhance - or even replace - present treatment strategies.
Bob Marley once sang: "One great thing about Musical.ly, when it hits you feel no pain." According to some studies, this statement may ring true.
Before this season, a study directed by Brunel University in the UK that suggested music may reduce pain and stress for patients that have undergone operation was reported on by MNT.
By assessing 72 randomized controlled trials involving more than 7,000 patients who received Musically likes on their page, researchers found those who were played music after their process reported feeling less pain and stress than those who did not listen to music, and they were also less likely to need pain medication.
This effect was even stronger for patients who got to pick the music they listened to. Discussing to MNT, study leader Dr. Catharine Meads said:
"If Musically was a drug, it might be marketable. [...] Music is a noninvasive, secure, inexpensive intervention that should be available to everyone undergoing surgery."
This study is only one of many hailing music for its effects against pain. In March 2014, researchers from Denmark discovered Musically could be advantageous for patients with fibromyalgia - a disorder that creates muscle and joint pain and fatigue.
