(Gibson) Feeling blue? Crank up some Metallica, and you'll feel better in no time! In a her latest book, Your Playlist Can Change Your Life: 10 Proven Ways Your Favorite Music Can Revolutionize Your Health, Memory, Organization, Alertness and More, Columbia University professor Galina Mindlin asserts that rocking out to songs with a certain number of beats per minute can generate specific mental states, such as productivity and relaxation, according to DNAinfo.com. Lo and behold, Metallica's hard-rocking tunes fall into that category.

"It's [about] how music affects you how it can improve your memory, how it can relieve anxiety, enhance your mood, how we can use playlists for specific tasks," Mindlin said. "Using music with certain frequencies, you really can create the desired state of mind."

As for other jams that might lift your mood, Your Playlist Can Change Your Life lists sample playlists, but Mindlin warns that selecting specific songs is a very personal experience. "What's right for you might not be right for someone else," she said. "Some people love the classical genre, but some people get excited by pop. The idea is to activate as many brain areas as you can." more on this story
