Listening to a heavy metal song can make us want to eat a hamburger or fries more. It is one of the conclusions of a peculiar study that relates musical tastes with culinary ones.
Researchers at Miyagi University in Japan asked 800 people to listen to 20 songs from four genres: classical music, jazz, hip-hop and rock / heavy metal.
They were then asked to consider which of the 16 foods they wanted to eat, rating each from “not at all” to “a lot.”
Thus, they discovered that those who listened to classical music later preferred sweet foods, such as yogurt, chocolate or cereal bars.
Jazz songs like Take Five by Dave Brubeck and Walkin ‘ by Miles Davis made people enjoy tasty and healthy foods like soy burgers, seafood pasta or vegetable sandwiches.
This is the complete list of songs and foods that generate the most, divided by genres:
