Studies have confirmed the OP re music but the same study tools would shirley find the same with movies. All action.....no theme, no development, no surprises.

Are you trying to denigrate our A.I. composer and script writing overlords?
If you optimize for market success, by definition, you cannot makes something original, since you would have no idea how the market will react.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
- Douglas Adams

On louder... this was a large part of my displeasure with the Kingsmen movie. In fact we will be bending the ear of the cinema manager on this point in a few days as we go back for another movie. We had previously noticed the loudness with another movie some time ago, but the Kingsmen volume was unbearable. They really needed a health warning. My wife actually used earplugs for it - her bag containing more goodies than my pockets, I had to suffer. I`ll be asking of their targeted decibel level.

Yes, good article Bobbo. I have to agree with you wholeheartedly (bite your tongue boy!). Today's music, by and large, is not music, it's just a noise. I can't grab it, can't listen to it.

And movies? What a load of crap. Action? Yep plenty of action - meaningless though. What is the story line? Where is the genuine suspense? That's why I subscribe to a DVD rental mob who have some of the best movies of yesteryear. Classics, all types of genre, your's for the choosing. The biggest rental company in Australia. To hell with Netlfix, not in the race. Quickflix is the name, but only serves Australia as far as I know.

1975...Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see...
I'm just a poor boy
I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go
Little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows
Doesn't really matter to me...to me


2007...Cupid Shuffle by Cupid
Shuffle... Cupid shuffle
Cupid shuffle, cupid shuffle, cupid shuffle, cupid shuffle
Cupid shuffle, cupid shuffle, cupid shuffle, cupid shuffle
Cupid shuffle, cupid shuffle
(Come on, come on, come on, and do the)
Down, down, do your dance, do your dance (Do the Cupid dance)
Down, down, do your dance, do your dance (Come on, don't stop)
Down, down, do your dance, do your dance (We got brand new dance)
Down, down, do your dance, do your dance (hey, hey)
Down, down, do your dance, do your dance (We got a brand new dance)
Down, down, do your dance, do your dance (oh, oh, oh)
Down, down, do your dance, do your dance (yeah, yeah)
Down, down, do your dance, do your dance (Now let me see ya do that dance)

Ahh...."2018 challenger"....so I got that wrong re the date. Ummm, that means I'd have to listen to some of it? THATS a no-go, so Yummy, Yimmy is the default winner.

Last pop song I happened to hear that I liked was Katy Perry's "Roar." I like the catchy way she transistions to "roar." The video was sickly sweet too.

I've gotta mention, for Old Boy Funky White Music, I still like "Bony Moronie" every time I hear it.
