I only ask because I have a friend of mine who is deaf but she seems to always move along with the beat whenever we play loud music. How is that possible?

Hi, this is a very valid question. I saw a movie once where the deaf girl explained that while she may not have been able to hear the music, she could feel the vibrations that it caused. So yes, they do "feel" music, just like we could if we put ear plugs in and turned the music up.

Yes, they feel the vibrations. Deaf animals can do the same thing. Have you ever noticed when you play something with a really loud deep baseline that it makes the speakers rumble? Well there you go!

I had a completely different theory, but now that I've read the previous two answers to the question - mine just seems stupid, and I will not be sharing it here. LOL! I guess it makes perfect sense that deaf people would respond to vibrations around them. Even people with normal hearing can feel the same vibrations.

We hear sound by translating vibrations, same as we see through translating vibrations through our eyes, and taste by the same process through our tongues. All our senses do is translate vibrations into stuff we can see, hear, taste, smell and touch. So it makes sense that 'deaf' people can still feel those same vibrations, albeit not in the same way we feel them.
