“You Can’t Take My Door” is what happens when you take a neural network and tell it to create a country song. Obviously the resulting lyrics are pretty nonsensical. But it does succeed in creating that cheesy country music feeling.

Elle O’Brien and a team from Botnik Studios created the AI song by making use of machine learning to make the AI study country songs. It then tries to find patterns and replicate them, after some thousand attempts you get something out of it that looks decent. The usual story.

These machine learning experiments often give us a unique perspective on how things around us work. Apparently it also raises questions such as “can a computer fall in love with a door?”.

This song is part of a funded Kickstarter project to make a whole album of songs like this.
