I don't think that you grasp what is meant by stimulating the intellect.

If it makes your imagination work, it is stimulating your intellect. If it makes you think, it is stimulating your intellect. If it arouses an emotion, it is stimulating your intellect. If it makes you laugh it is stimulating your intellect.

Music on the other hand can stimulate feeling, emotion, senses without passing through the filter of your intellect - it does so directly.
