"I'll stop the world and melt with you,
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time,
There's nothing you and I won't do,
I'll stop the world and me-Elt with you!"

Chances = 0%

See above....1 hit and utter crap at that.

Influence? Nah
Innovation? Nah. Ran the same formula as their contemporaries
Commercial success? Somewhat, though minimal, "I Melt With You" is their best remembered hit (#18 in the UK and charted in the U.S.)
Critical acclaim? After the Snow was well received.

Summary: Hall of Fame worthy? Nope.

ooh, i see my formula is becoming popular. WHy don't you try and involve the numbers, I&I are 0 - 30 with apossible 40, ca and cs are 0-20 witha possibility of 30. you can include bonuses if you want.

It's a good formula. I can try and tackle some other artist with the numbers.

I think I'm going to steal it as well. I'll call it the "GFW Attributes for Induction Chances Formula". I don't know who I'll analyze first.

As long as you give me credit than i'm not bothered.
