Do the Math
This little chart comes from overthinkingit.com, and shows peak oil production in the US about 1965, charted against Rolling Stone’s list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All TIme"; this is not just rock, we’re talking great songs (#1 is Bob Dylan Like a Rolling Stone, FYI). You can’t dispute the oil numbers, but it’s IMPOSSIBLE that songwriting quality declined as pictured- and ignores some of the best songs ever written, just because nobody’s heard them??? What did they do, find a hundred boomers and take their word for it??
