Music is getting worse with time - scientists can prove it now

What's better, old music or new music? Many people like old songs better than anything else, and, as it turns out, science can now explain that.


A group of scholars from the Spanish National Research Council examined different aspects of pop music and the way they have changed since 1955. The results are surprising!


What do you think about these facts? Do you like old or new music better? What's your favorite period of music?

I like many different genres of music. Lyrics have always been near the top of my list for selecting my favorites. One of my greatest dislikes in current music is the emphasis on enhancing the voices with electronics. I prefer artists who have great voices and don't need to be enhanced artificially.

The older music is much better. That music touched the heart and affected you emotionally. The words had a message with meaning. I can barely hear the lyrics of today's music. And when I see the lyrics in written form, they are repetitious and have little meaning. That's not true for all music written within the past couple of decades, but most of it.

Music has the unique power of providing a means to relive a time and place of the listeners past. I enjoy songs from years ago to enjoy little bursts of memory for good times or even not so good but all bring a peacefulness that few things in life provide. Listening to new music can create a like or dislike opinion but rarely causes you to just smile and “mellow” out like music from the past can do.

WOW! Can we all let others' keep their choices of music! I personally love classical music. The less the verbage the better, just melody for MOI. Thanks.

I vehemently disagree with this. You only have to listen to the lyrical genius of Taylor Swifts "Shake it off" to realize music is continually improving. The Beatles couldn't touch Nicky Minajis lyrical poetry on "Let me work it". That's not even mentioning Britney Spears or Backstreet Boys! Please!

Jeanne King Ormond, There are tons of good stories being written, but few make it into the movies or television. That is why, when they do produce something original, it often becomes a block buster. I think entertainment companies feel safer with retreads, because the original was a hit. Something new could bomb.

One genre of music that is of really poor quality, is Christian music. Some of the songs done by professional groups are good, but it is the songs that are sung in so many congregations that sound like they were written by an elementary school student with no talent. They only have one or two verses that are repeated over and over, and the melodies are unrecognizable and illogical (if you could call them melodies). They are known as praise songs; i praise God when they finally end.

Discussed my ‘nostalgic tastes’, ie older Rock n Roll era music recently, and concluded that I was kind of stuck in a rut. This suggests that perhaps there is more to the whole ‘my generation’ explanation for my not being struck by the likes of Sheeran and Adele.

Hopefully the next change in music will be the return to music you can enjoy !!

I feel currently for quality musical arrangements you have to turn to Broadway and it's musicals. "Dear Evan Hansen", "Once" "Wicked" contain songs that can stir the heart and rock the soul. Much of today's pop scene is all too repetitive and rehash of what's gone before. As for broadway, be the father of a girl and listen to Fiddler's "Sunrise, Sunset" and tell me it doesn't bring a tear to your eye.
