Talking about golden ratio, why is it so that linear cultural products (like music or book) feel better when the longer part is first and the shorter part after that, or would people consider it also good if the shorter part was first and longer part after that?

Or is this an observation artefact, haven't I just paid enough attention to the possibility of the shorter part being first? Something for me to explore, I guess.

@Stoori reminds of a story from a Chinese book of anecdotes that basically went:
— Why do you eat the sugar cane from the root end?
— It gets better later.
