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
(click for full image)
2007’s average introduction length was 3%.
- 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. =)
