Scientists name 10 catchiest pop songs

Scientists Name 10 Catchiest Pop Songs” from Science 20.

I’ve never heard 5 of the songs on this list (guess I better get busy finding them on YouTube or something), and have to take issue with Europe’s “Final Countdown”.  Although, I can still remember the chorus, despite having not heard the song for over 20 years…so maybe they’re right.

    Well, I’ve heard about half of them, and they mostly suck, so maybe there’s a point to that too.

    wow, very interesting. I agree with the formula to help define why a song is cathchy but I’m surprised at how much disagree with that song list. Hmmm, I thought maybe it’s because it is out of the UK? And since I am still hearing Africa in my head (from previous post) I think it should be on that list 🙂

    Yeah, it seems like a lot of likely songs are left off. But then, a lot of what’s catchy is subjective and changes from person to person.
