Crowd-sourced popular music

I don't know whether to call it a technological triumph or say, "I told you pop music was dumb."

Greetings,

There's pop music and there's pop music.

This is unashamedly talking about what one might call "manufactured pop music"... and as with any genre of music, there's those "industry" types who are simply in it for the money, and there's those who do it for the art.

Pop-art. 8-)

It's an interesting experiment... it's a logical integration of the established phenomenon of "loops" and "electronic voting".

Metta,
Retro. :)

What is it the people get from this?
My theory is that they just want something comfortable. If it conforms to what they already know, they like it.
