There was a nationwide study discussed on This American Life, a really interesting radio show, about sound. What kinds of music do people like most, and what do they like least? Including tempo, music style, vocal variety, instrumentation, subject of the song, length, etc. They had everything ranked by participants, then formed all the most liked things into a song, and all the least liked things into another song.
Needless to say, the most liked song was rather typical. A love song with typical instruments like guitar, piano, drums, bass, etc, and a low voiced female singer, and of a normal length. The least liked song is super long, and has a variety of "horrible", yet interesting sounds. For instance; an opera singer rapping, accordian, bagpipes, harp, pipe organ, singing about cowboys and holidays, advertising, animal noises, politics, and so much more that most people hate. I'm posting a link to it at the bottom, and strongly suggest that if you have some time to kill, just put it on while you do other stuff on your computer. I have to admit, I totally love the weirdness of it. Partially because it's so unwanted I feel the need to adopt it, and partially because there are parts of it that really are fabulous and, if extracted, would fit great into "beautiful" music. Most of all, it's really funny and entertaining for me to listen to. At least once.
