I’m continuously blown away at some of the songs that become smash hits!

I could name names, but I wouldn’t do such a thing as I may get in trouble for it, but there are definitely some very popular songs that are just horrible and people make millions off them.

With that said, there are some artists, producers, or songwriters that just have it figured out. They make great music and have a huge catalog of smash hits in their back pocket.

Take Katy Perry’s album “Teenage Dream,” which produced 5 number-one singles, tying Michael Jackson’s “Bad” album.

Or, check out producer Max Martin, who has 17 number one songs thanks to his work with Katy, Britney, P!nk, and Kelly Clarkson to name a few!

Producer Dr. Luke sits at 15 number-one singles, having produced songs for Ke$ha, Miley, and more.

So is there a certain formula to producing or writing a hit song?

If you look at The Beatles, their producer George Martin leads the way with 23 number-one singles and Paul McCartney (32) and John Lennon (26) sit at the number-one and two spots for songwriters.

So, the actual equation is probably pairing the right artist with the right producer, and of course, talent.

For today’s Viral Video of the Day, we let the nerds break it down for us with a video explaining the formula behind a perfect pop song.

Take note all you musicians, producers and songwriters out there as this info can only help.

But wait…there’s more! Hang out with Surfer Stephen and a few more of his favorite viral videos below:
