Let's be clear upfront. I am not a Doctor or a health field expert. I do know what a hospital is, and what a Doctor and a Nurse are. Aside from that, I have no clue.

But, as a Doctor of Classic Rock (title I made up), I can only assume that there must be health benefits from listening to Classic Rock. Here are five examples I can think of:

1. A Classic Rock song can put you in a good mood. It's music that has stood the test of time, and sounds just as good as when you first heard it. Gotta be healthy there!

2. Because these tunes are a few decades old, they can bring back some great memories. That's got to make you feel good, right? Ah, the good 'ol days.

3. Some songs get you up and dancing (or at least singing.) So if you dance to the tune, that's healthy thing I would think. If you just sing, well, your vocal cords get a workout, so that's something!

4. If you listen to Classic Rock at work, your productivity improves, and that's a healthy thing, because you appear as a good worker, keeping employed and leading a healthy prosperous life. Sounds good, I think.

5. Jogging, running or working out in general requires an awesome set of Classic Rock. You know the songs, you know the lyrics, you know the bass line. And that makes for a more enjoyable, healthy lifestyle.

There you go. A wildly unscientific, unsubstantiated set of reason listening to Classic Rock may just have health benefits. I take no responsibility.
