Lots of interesting findings here by the Tracklib team. One example:
“Averaging the release years of all the songs sampled, we get the year of 1998. This is actually 4 years older than last year’s average of 2002. In fact, every genre on Billboard sampled older songs this year compared to last.
One eye-catching fact is that pop sampled the oldest songs on average, with the average landing all the way back in 1993.”
