  • slower in tempo,
  • “sadder” and less “fun” to listen to,
  • melodically less complex, using fewer chord changes, and recordings are mastered to sound consistently louder, and
  • more repetitive over the years, and that song lyrics from today compress 22% better on average than less repetitive song lyrics from the 1960s.
