I read in the elevator- so it must be true- that once you are 33 you are stuck in your musical ways. That seemed completely unbelievable to me so I searched for the study and found this site:
If you don't want to read it, it basically states that, from research gleaned from Spotify and Echo Nest, people's musical tastes are cemented at 33. You will no longer discover new music or listen to music out of your genre. For some reason this happens earlier if you have kids.
I cannot believe this. I have kids. Nine years after my music exploration cut off date I started liking Country music. I had never listened to it before. Over the last year a new employee has shared a lot of music I never listened too before with me and I love a lot of it.
If this study is true than I am an exception. Which feels kinda good.
What do you think? Please share your stories. I can't wait to read them.
If you like music Arlee Bird's blog "Tossing it Out" usually has a battle of the bands where you can listen to the same songs by two different bands and vote on which version is your favorite. Arlee is the founder of the very popular A to Z Challenge and is focused on that right now but I am sure he will go back to his regular format soon so check it out.
