For these study normal, healthy medical students 19-21 years, both sexes were selected (N30). In four different stages their HR, was measured 1) Baseline (without any stimulus) 2) before exercise (songs played) 2) after 5-6 min exercise using Bi-cycle Ergo meter (no song played) 4) after exercise, slow tempo 60-70 beats/ min, medium 80-90 beats/ min and fast tempo 120-160 beats / min songs were played (2.5-3 min) with a resting period of 30 min between one tempo to another tempo song. The result shows that the fast tempo songs significantly (P<0.005) increases the HR, when compare to other tempo songs it indicate that fast tempo song has effect on HR
