Music, a universal language unbound by limitations, resonates across diverse communities.

Regardless of age, gender, or background, its allure captivates hearts and minds.


Whether through the familiar tunes on the radio, the intimate strums of an instrument at home, or the collective melodies shared at concerts. Music holds the transformative power to infuse joy, solace, and inspiration into every soul.

Its enchanting essence lies in its capacity to forge connections, evoke profound emotions, and articulate the ineffable. Irrespective of individual origins, music unites humanity, enriching lives and fostering unity in its harmonious embrace.

Music is not only for humans, animals love it too!

Is it safe to say that even animals can be fascinated by a piece of good music? Music’s rhythm and vibe can be so mesmerizing that even furry creatures can’t resist it.

This is particularly to domesticated animals that are usually kept as home companions like cats and dogs.


Are you looking for some proof? Then ask no more and look no further because this video will show you everything you want to see and know.

In a video uploaded by Paul Barton on his self-titled YouTube channel, he and his young daughter played together in front of their dog named, Sharky.

And the father-daughter duo picked the right song for the occasion. What song comes into your mind when you think of serene and calm music?

If your answer is ‘Moon River’ then you’re absolutely right.

“Moon River” is a famous song written by Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini. You might recognize it from the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” where Audrey Hepburn sang it.


This song talks about feeling a bit sad and longing for something, like when you think about life and how it changes.

It compares life to a river that twists and turns, showing how things can be uncertain but also hopeful.

The music and words make people think about their own dreams and experiences.

“Moon River” is loved by many because it reminds them of feelings like wanting, love, and hope, making it special to them.


A dog like Sharky could also relate to the song’s message, wouldn’t you agree? Dogs also long for love, especially from their humans. They are these furry clingy creatures who want nothing but their owner’s attention.

It’s amazing how Barton and his daughter were able to make Sharky behave for over 2 minutes.


Using his piano, Barton goes into the song’s intro, and just seconds after goes his daughter with her saxophone.

The combination of their musical instruments is so calming that it almost sounds like music from the heavens above.

While, Sharky, on the other hand, is just sitting and enjoying the gift of music from his humans.

Although we don’t actually know what he’s currently feeling while Barton and his daughter are playing, one thing is for sure – he loves it!


For the record, Barton is no ordinary dad who knows how to play piano.

He was born in England in 1961 and was a talented artist from a young age. He won awards for his paintings and drawings and studied at a famous art school. Later, he became known for playing the piano and teaching others through videos online.

The question now is, do dogs really like music?


Recently, an ad on Spotify featured a playlist made especially for dogs, but this idea isn’t new.

In 2010, artist Laurie Anderson held a concert for dogs in Sydney and later in Times Square, New York City, where only dogs could hear her music (owners could listen with headphones).

This experiment was even featured on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” Some dogs seemed to enjoy the music, but whether it truly affects them is still debated by experts.

Research by psychologist Deborah Wells suggests that dogs might respond differently to various types of music; for example, classical music seemed to have a calming effect, while heavy metal caused agitation.


In other words, music has different effects on dogs. In Sharky’s case, it looks like his humans’s type of music calms him down.
