I heard that listening to a mellow song really helps with digesting information. Does it really? Have you tried it and does it work?

Yeah, usually some baroque stuff and/or classical guitar music. Bach's lute suites are excellent for this, as well as his solo violin works.

I just completed my psychology final research project on this very subject
I investigated the effect of music on cognitive abilities (memory recall and problem solving) splitting the participants into intuitive and analytical brain types. I moved past just the studying phase and into the examination itself investigating whether we were putting certain brain types at a disadvantage by making everybody take exams in the same conditions.
Research suggest that a non-vocal, non-dramatic musical piece will help memory recall in most students. (Musicians being sometimes an exception to this)

This is exactly what works for me. I study best with silence/muffled noise, or with music that has no vocals or no dramatic beats 🤷🏼*♀️

Classical music is good, but usually used it for maths (practise) rather than when I have to learn things

Did you find any evidence of state-dependant forgetting such as with Goodwin et al. (1969) and Baker et al. (2004) in terms of remembering best when the same music is playing at learning and recall?

My experiment used the same track in both learning and recall so didn’t use that as a variable. It was however something discussed as further study options. It focussed more on the difference between the two brain types and which section that music was present in.
