Notes & Transcripts

According to University of Kentucky psychologist Nathan Dewall, today’s young people “love themselves more today than ever before.” By analyzing the top songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 songs over the past three decades Dewall found a steady increase in self-centeredness and hostility toward others.”

The study found a marked increase in the prevalence of the words “I” and “me” in song lyrics, and fewer instances of “we” and “us.” Angry words about hating and killing also surpassed positive words like “love” or “sweet.”
