On the occasion of the 60th Grammy Awards on Sunday, Amy X. Wang and Dan Kopf noticed a rising trend in song lyrics containing “deathly words,” so they that they decided to run a statistical analysis on pop song lyrics going back to 1958. The data supported their hypothesis, and they take a stroll through music history to figure out why morbid thoughts are on the rise. (It’s not just the emergence of hip hop.) FULL STORY

Captain Obvious says, "Old Rock 'N Roll music news takes so long ⌛ to become new news in the world of Pop Rock's reality selling an all too familiar death theme. 📳 🎸 🎤 💀 :oops:

And now it's news? :?

Riddick, I scanned the FULL STORY for 1998's double Grammy winner. I thought The Wallflowers' death knell song 'One Headlight' would be missing and it was. I expected to see their whole list beginning in 1958 and it must be available somewhere on line. :confused:

The first song here is one "British Invasion" rock band's 1980's ballad but the second song is spot on topic American Pop Rock!
