STUDY: You Probably Found Your Favorite Song When You Were a Teenager

posted by Carson -



This is so true for me! Most of my ALL TIME FAVORITE songs are from my early teenage years: Austin by Blake Shelton (2001) and Ignition Remix by R. Kelly (2003). I was 11 and 13 when those songs came out.

This study found that the most formative music-listening period for women is between the ages of 11-14, with an average of 13. For men, it's 13-16, with an average of 14. MAKES SENSE! 

The study at a glance:

• The songs you listen to when you're a teenager often impact you in ways no other music ever will.

• the most formative music-listening period for women is between the ages of 11-14, with an average of 13.

• "The key years, in fact, match closely with the end of puberty, which tends to happen to girls before boys,"

• "For both men and women, their early 20s were half as influential in determining adult musical tastes as their early teens."
