    1.) Why were you seeding Pandora with “The Final Countdown”? Nothing good was ever going to come from this.

    2.) I am unclear on the algorithm that led Pandora from Bon Jovi to Haddaway.

    3.) I wouldn’t say I’m a fan, necessarily, of the type of music under discussion here; but occasionally I do get a hankering for its ridiculous over-the-top-ness, and I admire its ruthlessness in structure and hook-deployment. There’s something shark-like in music so utilitarian, even if I generally prefer those dance-music variants that are shaded in more muted, minimalist colors.Report

      One of my son’s first few Pandora stations was seeded with “The Final Countdown.” He was 10 or 11, I think.

      I used to get a lot of strange songs on some Pandora stations (e.g., early 80s Madonna showing up on a Pixies station), so I’m wondering if something like that happened. Maybe there’s a Pandora dimension just called “big,” and it can’t tell the difference between late-80s hair and late-90s dance anthems.Report

    For ten years I knew The Final Countdown only as Gob’s theme. I had no idea it was more than ten seconds long.Report

    “Pandora’s box was opened.”

    Don’t think I didn’t see what you did there…Report

    It’s obvious you need help, @christopher-carr . Just a little pinprick. There’ll be no more “Aaaaaaa-aaaaa–aaah!” (though you may feel a little sick).

    So, do you want to be sedated?Report
