Psychologist E. Glenn Schellenberg and sociologist Christian von Scheve teamed up to comb through five decades of Billboard Top 40 hits. They find that, over time, our taste in pop music has veered toward more and more depressing songs.
From the ArticleAnalyzing Top 40 hits from the mid-1960s through the first decade of the 2000s, they find an increasing percentage of pop songs are written using minor modes, which most listeners—including children—associate with gloom and despair. In what may or may not be a coincidence, they also found the percentage of female artists at the top of the charts rose steadily through the 1990s before retreating a bit in the 2000s.

In an interview with Christopher of Mansions, he states that the split with John Nolan of Taking Back Sunday will have more news soon and both songs for the split are done.
In This InterviewI don’t want to say too much, but I think there’s going to be news on that soon. He did his song a couple months ago, and then it was waiting on me to finish mine, and we recorded ours at the beginning of April, and I’m finishing up the mix right now. You should be hearing about that soon.
