Researcher Mike McCready says the computer program is 93 percent successful in picking which songs become hits.
A guy I worked for in Singapore wrote a paper about being able to create a top ten band. He claimed he had an actual mathematical equation that whereby he could take a group of variables from all of the top 10 hits from the past year and use them to create a song that was a guaranteed number 1.
