I was discussing the related topic with Junior yesterday, namely that people are conditioned to respond to music they already know. Radio stations know this
Those too young to be around in 1970 probably only know Ray Dorset's biggest hit. 
And many British 60s hits were unfalsifiied rip offs from black American singers' songs.

There is an industry around music, Music is dead. The 70's was the best decennium.

I bought my baby a red radio
He played it all day a-go-go a-go-go
He liked to dance to it down in the streets
He said he loved me but he loved the beat

But when I switch on I rotate the dial
I could see it there driving him so wild
I bought my baby a red radio
He said he loved me but he had to go

(Chorus):
It's just the same old show on my radio
It's just the same old show on my radio
It's just the same old show on my radio
It's just the same old show on my radio
On my radio on my radio on my radio

The cognitive schema. Doesn't explain why I hate several recognised musicians, e.g. Michal Urbaniak:
I sense something vulgar and profane in his jazz.

So you advise an estimation process that approaches the limit from above, what?

Indeed! And one is at pain to understand why President Trump hasn't yet armed teachers and moms in case one of those old judo gurus attack the kids

College student who walked nearly 20 miles on first day of new job gets car from boss

Thanks to my new parka, which has so much isolation that it makes me look overweight, I'm discovering the wonders of cold London weather. A relaxing walk (as much as one can relax in East London) in the park at 5 a.m. sipping the morning fog. Birds singing before the traffic takes over. And then a squirrel approaches me - I forgot to bring nuts :-(
I can't understand why I get so cold in this weather. On the continent we had much colder winters. I used to jump outside in a T-shirt and shorts without getting cold. The air was crisp and still, though, and here it's humid and kind of "motile". I suspect it strongly affects my perception of temperature.

Thinking of coffee, there was a funny experiment which showed that depending on whether we hold a warm or cold cup of coffee, we judge people's personalities as warm or cold, respectively. Hypothalamus controlling thermoregulation is apparently connected to cerebral cortex.
