Reddit Users Try to Make a Hit Pop Song

Can Reddit Users Create a Hit Song?

Can the power of Reddit translate to Billboard success? A group of Redditors are trying to churn out the next hit pop song, and updates on their progress can be viewed on Reddit Top of the Pops, a new subreddit created for the purposes of collaborating on a chart-worthy song.

The project was first inspired by a random musing on the subreddit AskReddit, where user Indubitable_Smoo said after spending a whole week "listening to an urban music radio station, which plays generic music that all sounds the same," he or she concluded that Reddit users could easily come up with a generic hit song. The overwhelming response prompted Indubitable_Smoo to start Reddit Top of the Pops.

Soon after its creation, the thread was buzzing with activity and various singers, producers, and songwriters started offering their services. One commenter claimed to work for a legitimate online radio station and said he "might be able to get [the station] to play the finished product."

The moderators have designed a master plan of execution and have currently completed the first step — holding a vote on the best sound track out of 14 submissions. Here's what the winner, entitled "Generic Pop Instrumental," sounds like:

Other tasks on their to-do list includes finding lyricists and singers, making a music video, and figuring out a way to collect and distribute royalties.

What do you think — does the track have the makings of the next hottest pop song?
