Computers crack the code of pop-song success: It helps to be 'happy' and 'female'

 

f you find it hard to predict which songs are destined for pop-chart success and which will flop, try asking a computer.

After analyzing the attributes of more than half a million songs released over a period of 30 years, a computer algorithm was able to sort the successful songs from also-rans with an accuracy of up to 86%.

 

A team of mathematicians from UC Irvine described how — and why — it accomplished this feat in a study published in Wednesday’s edition of the journal Royal Society Open Science.

 

“There is something magical about music,” wrote the team, which was led by students Myra Interiano, Kamyar Kazemi and Lijia Wang. “Scientists have been trying to disentangle the magic and explain what it is that makes us love some music, hate other music and just listen to music.” [Snipped]

Yep...it helps to be good looking, female, and shake her ass and sing pretty and all the horny strait guys will listen to her and watch any videos of her.

I'll take decent melodic metal over that shit most of the female performers put out today.

 

Old school Madonna has never been outdone in my opinion though. Her stuff had variety and some substance at least. Then again, she was at the top of the charts back in my day.
