The “Most wanted” song in the world

Wired.com is reporting that some scientists actually spent some time and money to figure out what the most wanted/unwanted kinds of music are.  They wanted specifics.

They received tons and tons of feedback and concetntrated that into finding the least and most wanted music in the world.  At least scientifically.

Below you can hear the most “wanted” song in the world.  It combines all the elements people indicated they were looking for.

Here’s how the article describes it:

This “most wanted” version combines the elements the 500 people surveyed said they wanted most — love, soprano sax, humble ambition, tenor sax, a marriage proposal, cheesy electronic drum fills, working the night shift, string swells, power chords, and saccharine male/female harmonies

It’s awful.  That being said, here it is:

Music MySpace Monday

MySpace Monday: Elisabeth Troy

Elisabeth Troy has a way poppier style than we’re used to over here at 4080, but I thought we’d go for just a tinge of diversity in the MySpace Monday posts.

Beyond the fact that she’s other London-based soulstress, I can’t find too much other information about this young lady.  If any of y’all know, please leave a comment.

Her style’s soul with a bit of a dance/electronic vibe to it.  Her track Higher Ground can be found remixed all over the internet.  House deejays in particular love to play with it, but here it is straight from her:
