An analysis of the effects and relation between music and war
We will restrict our ensuing remarks to the largest and most comprehensive studies.
These caveats notwithstanding, in light of the limited options for gathering pertinent empirical data, we nevertheless chose to pursue a survey-based approach. In the second approach, the research goal is to infer the structure or pattern underlying the use of music.

Specifically, we identified and skimmed hundreds of publications that explicitly suggest various functions, uses, or benefits for music.

Lucky for America, musicians have a terrible track record in getting themselves elected to a public office. Speculate about the purpose of the oral history.
Psychological effects of music on the brain
Nevertheless, there are a number of plausible and interesting conjectures that offer useful starting-points for investigating the functions of music. The above theories each stress a single account of music's origins. In terms of generating political, emotional and financial support for the Soviet cause, that one piece of music was worth three or four Murmansk convoys. Greek armies on campaign employed musicians to accompany poetic recitations of odes and paeans designed to remind soldier and citizen alike of the valor of past heroes. For example, Frith, , p. Arturo Toscanini and Leopold Stokowski nearly came to blows as they vied for the right to conduct its North American premiere. While television news broadcasting became more critical after the Tet Offensive, the big networks were hesitant to promote entertainers who were vocally opposed to the war. The most prominent of these approaches or theories are the ones that make explicit evolutionary claims. Following in the tradition of Merriam, Dissanayake proposed six social functions of ritual music such as display of resources, control, and channeling of individual aggression, and the facilitation of courtship.
