a person wearing a red shirt is looking at the camera© Provided by Business Insider Inc It's a simple fact of life that older people reminisce about the glory days. You might believe you'll stay young and free-spirited forever, but one day you'll find yourself grumbling about not understanding the latest slang words and asking a young person what a meme is.

For some, it might be happening earlier than they thought. That's according to a new survey from Deezer, which suggests people stop discovering new music at just 30 and a half.

The music streaming service surveyed 1,000 Brits about their music preferences and listening habits. 60% of people reported being in a musical rut, only listening to the same songs over and over, while just over a quarter (25%) said they wouldn't be likely to try new music from outside their preferred genres.

The peak age for discovering new music, the results suggested, was 24. This is when 75% of respondents said they listened to 10 or more new tracks a week, and 64% said they sought out five new artists per month. After this, though, it seems people's ability to keep up with music trends peters off.

Some of the reasons the survey revealed were people being overwhelmed by the amount of choice available (19%), having a demanding job (16%), and caring for young children (11%). Nearly half of respondents said they wished they had more time to dedicate to discovering new music, so at least for that 47%, it wasn't due to a lack of interest.

"With so much brilliant music out there, it's easy to feel overwhelmed," said Adam Read, the UK & Ireland music editor at Deezer. "This often results in us getting stuck in 'musical paralysis' by the time we hit our thirties."

Reds search for new CEO as Barker resigns

  Reds search for new CEO as Barker resigns The Queensland Reds are looking to appoint a new chief executive following the resignation of Richard Barker due to family reasons. Queensland Rugby Union chief executive Richard Barker has stepped down from his post due to family reasons.The announcement was made by QRU chairman Jeff Miller on Monday but it has been weeks in the planning as Barker needs more time to devote to wife Tracey who is battling breast cancer. Miller, who has already been overseas scouting potential replacements, said chief operating officer David Hanham would take over as interim chief executive in the meantime.

The supposed reasoning behind this lull in musical interest when hitting the big three-oh can be attributed to many factors. 19 per cent of respondents are overwhelmed by the number of music The study also distinguishes the age of 24 as being the "peak" time for new musical interest and discovery.

The survey reveals that adults over 30 years old stop looking for new music due to having kids or because there's just too much music out there. This also gives 30 -year-olds carte blanche to be crotchety-ass old people and start yelling at kids for their musical tastes. Here are some related metal

In 2015, the Skynet & Ebert blog looked at data from US Spotify users and Echo Nest. On average, teen music taste was dominated by popular music, then this steadily dropped until people's tastes "matured" in their early 30s. By age 33, it was more likely they'd never listen to new music again.

Scientists Cry Foul As Skeleton Of Mystery Dino Is Auctioned Off For $3 Million

  Scientists Cry Foul As Skeleton Of Mystery Dino Is Auctioned Off For $3 Million Beneath the metallic frame of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the fossilised remains of an unknown species of dinosaur sold to an anonymous buyer earlier today for €2 million ($3 million). A group of scientists had tried to stop the sale, saying such an important scientific discovery shouldn't fall to a private collector. An unknown British businessman sold the remains of the unknown dinosaur to an unknown French fossil collector. During the auction, Japanese and Swedish phone bidders had pushed the price above the €1.8 million ($2.8 million) estimate, but the French collector finally prevailed with his €2 million ($3 million) bid, The Guardian reports.

Survey Suggests People Over 30 Years Old Stop Discovering New Music . A reason why your mom still loves Bon Jovi. And a reason why you still have a strange affiliation with those punk bands This is the time where they stop listening to new artists or genres and tend to stick to what they know.

Rather than having less time, some research suggests we listen to the same songs over and over again because of musical nostalgia. For example, one major study, published in the journal Memory & Cognition, found that music had a very powerful effect on the mind to evoke memories, conjuring up old echoes of the past at school or university.

Earlier this year, economist Seth Stephens-Davidowitz analysed Spotify data in the New York Times. Essentially, he found that if you were in your early teens when a song was first released, it will be the most popular among your age group a decade later. Radiohead's "Creep," for example, is the 164th most popular song among 38-year-old men, but it doesn't even reach the top 300 for those born 10 years earlier or later. It's because men who are 38 now were in that musical sweet spot when the song was released in 1993.

As for why this happens, research has shown how our favourite songs stimulate our pleasure responses in the brain, releasing dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and other happy chemicals. The more we like a song, the more of these chemicals flow through our body.

But a new survey suggests that the rot sets in pretty early – with most people stopping listening to new music at 30 and a half years old. Music streaming service Deezer surveyed 1,000 music users in the UK, and found that 60% of people said they were in a music rut, where they listened to the

This happens for everyone, but during our adolescent years, our brains are going through a lot of changes. We're also incredibly hormonal and sensitive, so if we hear a song we really love, it's more likely to stay with us forever.

That isn't to say you won't hear a new song you love in later life - it just might not elicit the same strong response because you aren't such a sponge anymore.

Another reason we listen to the same songs over and over could be because of something called the "anticipation phase." If you get goosebumps when you hear your favourite songs, it could be because of the hormonal responses, but it could also be because you know the good part is coming up.

For example, just before the song peaks, or there's a dramatic chord change, our brain perceives it as a reward and releases dopamine. However, over time we start to lose the same feeling of euphoria because we musically gorge ourselves.

If you haven't heard a song for several years, the euphoria may return, particularly if you first heard it when your brain was soaking everything up between the ages or 12 and 22.

So if you have a penchant for music from your youth, it's probably wired deep into your psyche. You can indulge in that throwback Thursday playlist full of Panic! At The Disco and Blink-182 without shame because it will make your brain happy - it deserves it.
