If there's one thing you notice when growing up from your teens, it's that the music you listened to during that time is, and forever will be, the absolute best.
Your parents would guaranteed love the music they grew up with, so why would it be any different for you?
An expert spoke to Noisey about it, and explained why this happens.
Dr Stephanie Burnett Heyes – a psychology lecturer and British Academy postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Birmingham – revealed that, "Adolescence is a 'social sensitive' period, which means it’s a period of life when you’re receptive to other people and ideas – more receptive than later on – so those interactions and ideas tend to stick."
"Another reason has to do with the brain and what’s called 'functional brain activity'– and these ideas aren’t mutually exclusive to the social ones," Stephanie continued. "When adolescents are processing stimulating reward activities – which can be anything from money to sugar to someone you respect liking you back – they seem to be more responsive than older and younger people, and that seems to respond to their activity."
