Pop songs getting sadder
Are we getting sadder?
A study of 500,000 pop songs over the last three decades has found a decrease in the happiness factor.
The study by researchers at the University of California looked at a half million songs released in the UK between 1985 and 2015 and categorized them according to mood.
They found, while songs are becoming more danceable, happiness is down and sadness is up.
