Hit Picker

Spanish scientists have written a program that is 93% accurate in picking out which songs will become hits, based on various criteria.

Some music insiders fear the technology will encourage homogenized records, but McCready says it does the exact opposite and cites Norah Jones' Grammy-winning "Come Away With Me" CD as a perfect example.

Homogenized records? Say it ain't so! That could never happen!
