Blue Jeans and Bloody Tears - An AI created Eurovision Song

It's stuck in my head, ah!


A team of artificial intelligence researchers teamed up with some musicians to create a program to "write" a song that could "win" the Eurovision contest. This was the result. Enjoy!
Original description:As Europe (together with Australia and Israel) are glued to their TV sets watching the 64th Eurovision song competition, we asked ourselves What makes a Eurovision song memorable? does a Eurovision hit have special DNA?
We are a group of artists, musicians and programmers that wanted explore human creativity and challenge it. We have created a Eurovision AI song that celebrates Eurovision – its melodrama, kitsch and camp, its humor and its gimmicks. The result is comprised entirely of material written and composed by Artificial Intelligence, titled "Blue Jeans & Bloody Tears".
The project team fed hundreds of Eurovision songs – melodies and lyrics – into a neuron network. Then, algorithms produced thousands of new tunes and lines of verse, from which a few musical units were carefully selected and “welded” into a song.
We hope this song will become the Eurovision unofficial anthem of Eurovision 2019. A duet on disillusioned love between Izhar Cohen (Israel's first Eurovision winner, 1978) and a computer, written and composed by a computer. The song was produced by Avshalom Ariel - one of the creators of TOY (Eurovision song winner, 2018)
