Secret Formula For Writing A Hit Song

Mathematicians DiscoverThough math is usually used to tell you if a song was a hit based on sales, scientists from the University of Bristol believe they have " The Hit Equation. " A group focused on artificial intelligence developed machine learning algorithms that mined the characteristics of top hits to develop a formula for key musical features that determine whether a song will be a hit. I don't know how Hit Song Science does its magic, but they claim to analyze " fundamental characteristics of all music " including brightness, tempo and changes over time, to identify hit potential in relationship to changing trends.
