Love Songs are Seasonal?

(money.co.uk) Quirky new research by money.co.uk has shown a strong correlation between love song sales and the seasons.

Valentine's Day, the onset of Spring and the run-up to Christmas all being high times for pro-love song sales, while anti-love songs see a rise in the iTunes charts during peak break-up times and around the Autumn Solstice.

Holli Mcmenamin, a psychology graduate from London, says "It's an interesting snapshot of the general population's mood, and the fact that there are such definite peaks and troughs suggest that it's not as random as you would expect, or at least not just the result of the 'powers that be' (Apple, marketing executives, etc.) pushing certain tracks. If that were the case, both lines would probably be fairly straight throughout the year. It's hard to say how big an influence heartbreak is or by what mechanisms it affects the charts, but we can see here that its presence is definite." more on this story
