    Introduction: Music is the best described as the drug for the spirit as well as to the physique. The heartbeat and blood pressure (BP) recorded while listening to fast music was approximately 120–130 beats/min and 140/90. Moreover, in case of slow music, it was approximately 55–65 beats/min and 90/60, respectively. Materials and Methods: The sample size of this study is about 30 healthy individuals. Three different types of music are used for this study include melody, exciting, and arbitrary type. Participants were asked to listen each music separately and measure BP and heart rate. For a music interval, 10 min relaxation has been given and follows the other type of music and measurements will be noted. Results: The mean values of pulse rate, systole, and diastole were not significantly reduced from resting state when compared between before and after listening to slow and arbitrary music. However, the fast beat showed the increased mean (±standard deviation) values of pulse rate, systole, and diastole which have a significant effect on individual. Conclusions: Listening to slow beat music can benefit the health of an individual by modulating the cardiovascular rhythms, whereas fast beat music is ineffective and often dangerous. Thus, listening to slow music not only makes as happy but also have a significant result on our body
