They know what songs you like, even before you like them.

Record labels spend millions of dollars each year trying to predict
what singles will top the charts and which ingredients make a hit
single.

Now, two Massachusetts Institute of Technology PhD grads believe they
have cracked the code.

After years of crunching data, Brian Whitman and Tristan Jehan have
devised a computer program that listens to a song, then predicts how
humans will react to it.
