By: Jane West

When tragedy struck a tiny Dunblane primary school in Scotland in 1996, it seemed there was no antidote to the amount of broken hearts it left in its wake. Sixteen children and one teacher lost their lives to the evil hands of a maniac. All those tears cried by so many are barely dry and will never turn to tears of joy, but perhaps there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon.
Researchers the University of Glasgow Caledonia established that those paying attention to their favourite music experienced a smaller amount of bodily soreness and can stand for a longer time. That's fine, but what about those enduring "emotional" pain?
Some songs address the problem of healing the pain in their titles, rather like George Michael's "Heal the Pain". But how far do they go in actually curing the hurt? For many years, songs, tunes and melodies and have eased our burden. The sound of music is more than just noise; it can have an affect on many aspects of our lives. An unborn baby can be affected just by the tempo of its mum's heart beating, or even her humming.
Students being tutored can find a resounding difference to their recall facility just by virtue of the order and the distinct aspects of music being played in the background. This increases the speed at which the scholar can readily understand what they are being taught. This is also the same in the place of work.
Stress can be alleviated if you have subtle background music playing at low volume. Even one's ability to comprehend things can be increased just by this simple method. Various studies have revealed that healing can take place when music is played. Further research has shown, that by listening to music, people have become well again after suffering serious ill health and medical procedures. A piece of music can have a widespread effect on the way we live.
Can, though, the everlasting memory of Dunblane be soothed by music? The pains of the horrific events at Dunblane are still set deep into people's minds from when heartbreak struck. It was a most horrifying attack.
The Dunblane tragedy has been used as a template for a lyrically titled novel which uses the song title of the African-American pop mega-star Johnny Nash's out of the blue 1972 hit "I Can See Clearly Now the Rain is Gone".
