Is Music Getting Faster Because Streaming Makes It Easier to Skip Songs?

Is Music Getting Faster Because Streaming Makes It Easier to Skip Songs?

Is music streaming already having an effect on how songs are composed? Maybe. A new study found that the average tempo of pop music is FASTER now, possibly because our attention spans have become shorter.

The researchers looked at the year-end Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts between 1986 and 2015. And in addition to the tempo, they also found that vocals in songs are starting sooner.

In 1986, it took roughly 23 seconds for the vocals to kick in . . . but in 2015, they started within the first five seconds. That’s a drop of 78%, which seems significant.

The study said, quote, “It makes sense that if the environment is so competitive, artists would want to try to grab your attention as quickly as possible . . . [and] the voice is one of the most attention-grabbing things that there is.”

A previous study of Spotify listening habits found that 21% of songs get skipped over in the first five seconds. And if you think about it, music formats are making it increasingly easy to skip songs . . . from albums, to cassettes, to CDs, and now individual songs.

If people on Instagram become as annoying as people on Facebook, I’m going to have to go all-in on Snapchat.  And I REALLY get creeped out by pictures that use face swap, so that’s a worst-case scenario.

A new survey found the 10 most obnoxious photos people post on Instagram.  Check ’em out . . .

  1.  Couples kissing or cuddling.
  2.  Pictures that show off how good their body is.
  3.  Vacation photos that are just there to make other people jealous.
  4.  Any picture with friends tagged “#squadgoals.”  It’s an athletic workout thing.
  5. A beach photo of just your legs, where they look like two hotdogs.
  6. The hashtag “#nofilter,” to brag about how good you look unedited.
  7. Pictures by the pool.
  8. Pictures at a music festival.
  9. Sunset silhouettes.
  10. Sightseeing photos.

Millennials are over radio, right? WRONG. In a big way. When it comes to consuming media, they spend 23% of their time with radio. That’s actually MORE than their smartphone, laptop, or iPad. And more milliennials listen to radio each week than any other generation. It’s their number one source of music. And the numbers are going UP.

If you don’t believe us, check out the cold, hard stats. Data doesn’t lie, people.

The Music You’re Listening to Affects How Your Beer Tastes

The Music You’re Listening to Affects How Your Beer Tastes

If you’re wondering why everyone seems to love IPAs, but you think they’re way too bitter, maybe you should stop drinking them while you listen to weird Norwegian death metal.

A new study found that the music you listen to while you drink beer actually affects how it tastes. Like, if you’re listening to a Disney movie soundtrack, beer tastes sweeter. If you’re listening to something with a lot of angry bass, it tastes more bitter.

The researchers say it’s probably because you mentally transfer the emotions you feel from the music over to the beer.
