What Makes Music Good?

What is the criteria? Are there different kinds of good?

IMO all music taste is subjective. There are, however, some factors that actively condition us into liking music, but at this point i'm only generalizing and inventing as I go on, without any data to back my assertion, so take it with a grain of salt.

IMO, some of the factors that condition us to like a song:

-we can relate to it in the sense that it describes an event that has happened to us, whether that event is pleasant or unpleasant (ie: feeling in love/breaking up)
-we heard it when we were young and its been stuck in our head ever since (nostalgia)
-it describes a complex sentence/feeling in simple terms through analogies
-it is catchy (ie: it relies on simplicity, focusing almost exclusively on the melody line, which is part of the reason why many of us remmember 8-bit era videogame music)

Some personal examples follow (take notice these are only relevant to me)

Imagining The Future (Decade Nicknames, Hits) (1920s-2090s)

Here's a small video I made some time ago regarding decade nicknames. The hits I've chosen were pretty much taken from other video and invented by myself


Music Genres Created During the 2000s

Sharing a video I made about the Music Genres created during the 2000s

A longer version can be viewed here

As usual, a disclaimer:

Behold, a comprehensive list of all the music genres created during the 2000s.

Obviously that there are a lot more to include, because there are many genres that will only mature in the future, but have their roots in the 2000s.
