A while back I accused Microsoft Songsmith, a sort of karaoke-meets-instant-music-creator, of violating the Geneva Conventions. And that was before people started uploading their Songmsith versions of classic tunes to YouTube. (Strip the track down to the vocals, feed it into the program, and see what comes out.)

For instance, did you know that The Cars' "Just What I Needed" is a ballad?

The chord patterns matched by the program to the original vocals are, to put it charitably, interesting.
