從1960年代後感傷的音樂就越來越多。一項對美國流行音樂情緒暗示的研究顯示,美國流行音樂在25年中40張專輯裡的前1000首跨越五十年的歌曲裡,他們發現這個時尚的憂鬱狀況,熱門音樂聽起來越來越感傷。

 在學術中”聽起來感傷”的定義到底是什麼?

因為使用小調製作的出來的音樂增加了,然而音樂在平均的速度裡變慢了,因此證實熱門音樂聽起來更加的感傷。而音樂速度變慢比主要用小調製作的音樂更加明顯的強調,感傷的流行音樂漸進性增加在這綜合情緒暗示裡。

而做這項研究的之一的E. Glenn Schellenberg解釋為何這樣的情況會發生。

我覺得人們都喜歡認為他們很聰明。然而不含糊直接的快樂音樂變得很陳腔濫調。因此人們比較賞識悲傷以及詞意含糊的音樂。生活更加得複雜,因此人們也會想讓事物相同的複雜來得到滿足。
