Can Science Create The Ultimate David Bowie Song?

University of Hertfordshire Psychologist Gives It A Try      27/08/09

Can science improve on David Bowie?

University of Hertfordshire psychologist Dr Nick Troop thinks so.

Troop analyzed the language used, and the chart success, of Bowie's 26 albums and 266 songs. Troop found that Bowie songs with positive emotion and social processes had been more successful.

Based on this analysis, Troop created his version of the ultimate Bowie song. Troop explains his process in the video above, and follows it up with a performance of "Team, Meet Girls; Girls, Meet Team."

Troop is either the most awesome psychology lecturer ever.....or he's come up with a flimsy excuse to pimp his Bowie fanboy song.

Give it a listen and leave a comment with your thoughts....
