People who dance in a club to Kylie may have more measurable dopamine/neurological activity than some octogenarian season ticket holder nodding off in the opera.

Maybe, but that could partly be because they dance. To compare just the artworks themselves, we should maybe just listen to them (and alone in a laboratory), without doing other things that complicate the measurement.
