And, according to a provocative study published a few years ago, far from seeking out uplifting music, people diagnosed with depression are notably more inclined than healthy controls to choose to listen to sad music (and look at sad images).

The controversial implication is that depressed people deliberately act in ways that are likely to maintain their low mood.

The first part of the study was a replication attempt using the same materials as the 2015 paper that found depressed people preferred sad music.

Successfully replicating the earlier research, Yoon and his team found that their depressed participants were more likely to choose the sad music clips.

The majority of the participants with depression who favoured sad music said that they did so because it was relaxing, calming or soothing.

The researchers found again that people with depression had a far greater preference than controls for sad, low-energy music (but not fear-inducing music).

Yoon and his colleagues acknowledge more research is needed to find out why exactly depressed people favour sad music. »
