The current study examined the effects of listening to love songs on stress. We investigated whether listening to love songs can help reduce stress, and whether these effects are moderated by attachment style. The preliminary results showed that listening to a happy love song attenuated stress among secure participants, whereas sad love songs reduced stress among anxiously-attached participants.
