There *IS* a formula!

I couldn't pick a prefix for this, since it is both very silly and very serious. Honestly!

NPR interviewed Nashville songwriter Greg Todd about some serious research he's been doing into the commercial success of recent "Country/Pop" music -- probably best known in the US, but surely heard around the world to some degree.

His conclusion: There (absolutely!) is a formula.

Listen to it, and I'm sure you'll agree!

The NPR report is <HERE>

And if you'd just like to skip ahead and listen to the proof, it's on Youtube:

Is that one song? Sure sounds like it. I had to stop a minute into it, 'cause it was hurting my brain.

To my untrained ear all those tunes were very similar and seemed to be able to be interspersed into each of the 6 songs presented.

Is that what the research is saying?

Yes, suggesting that "hits" faithfully follow a pattern.
