Wish You Had More Time To Listen To Music? You’re Not Alone

As we grow older, the amount of time we spend listening to music diminishes. Interest in new music seems to peak in our early 20s. After that, we tend to cling to the music we discovered in our youth.

There are many determining factors, including jobs, family and mortgages. Deezer, a France-based streaming service, commissioned a survey of 1,000 people in the UK about their music preferences. They discovered that the peak age for music discovery is 24. Here are some more takeaways from their findings…

  • 60% say that they’re in a rut musically. The same songs over and over again work just fine for them.
  • 25% reported being open to new music
  • 19% complain that there’s too much music out there and they’re overwhelmed by the choice
  • 16% say having a job is getting in the way
  • 11% say they’re too busy with children and family
  • About half the people (47%) said they wished they had more time to devote to music.
