Pop Music, Like Youth, Is Wasted on the Young

I hate to say it but this is probably true:
To gauge the effect of aging on a musical attention span, here's a good rule of thumb: At age 16, most fans know everything in the Top 40. Subtract one song for each year past that, and the number will be about what the average fan will know.
What a drag it is getting old.

(Add one year to 16 for every year that has passed since that lyric was written and you’re either dead or look like Mick Jagger)
