Scientists have discredited claims that listening to classical music enhances intelligence, yet this so-called "Mozart Effect" has actually exploded in popularity over the years.
Why, no one is really sure. It appears that the more people literally disprove this urban myth, the more people want to believe it. Is the Mozart Effect like Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, or the Easter Bunny? We hope not but the original effects have never really been duplicated.
