Here's why AI can't make a catchier tune than the worst pop song in the charts right now

And this is where we discuss the fact that silicone has no soul and cannot appreciate the lyrics of Bob Dylan, the funky guitar of Niles Rodgers, the choral magnificence of Bach and the emotion of Mendelssohn. As for those who expect an algorithm can build a complex dance tune, I refer you to the previous examples. We all know how they sound and how they make us feel. Mathematics can only mimic human perception from years of experience in real life and real experiences.

Even buffoons such as Like Mike and Dmitri Vegas still have experience listening to soul, rock, disco, classical and will (maybe) have some experience of emotion (before their minds were destroyed by EDM).

Blimey, sounds like something from Blade Runner.
