The truth is rarely pure and never simple

music tempo over time

A few days ago, I asked myself whether pop music is getting faster over time. In order to check this, I looked for the music tempo in beats per minute (BPM) for most of the billboard top ten since 1970 and calculated the average BPM over time. As you can see, the taste of most people does not change that much.
