Haven’t Got Time for the Pain

Lloyds Pharmacy group released a survey this week that said more than 40 percent of respondents reported that music eased their physical pain.

Raw Story reports that the survey, which was conducted in the U.K., found that two-thirds of respondents from 16 to 24 years of age said that music helped. Genres were evenly split in their usefulness: Respondents said that pop music (21 percent of people responding), classical (17 percent) and rock and indie (16 percent) helped.

The five most helpful songs, in order: Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” Robbie William’s “Angel,” Fleetwood Mac’s “Albatross,” Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind” and The Commodores’ “Easy.”
