2007 Billboard #1s were 3% Introduction

I’ve been doing WAY too much thinking about the Intro music analysis.

With Last.FM and Youtube, I got the numbers for the 2007 Hot 100 Number-One Hits

2007’s average introduction length was 3%.

Notable information:

  • Average song length was 4 minutes and 25 seconds
  • Kanye West – Stronger had a negative introduction
  • Maroon 5 – Makes me Wonder had the longest intro

I’ll be running several more years. My prediction: this experiment will show society’s attention span has gone way down, and further prove that popular music sucks. =)
