CBS Sunday Morning:

COVER STORY: The science of pop music
What goes into creating a hit song? Are there formulas or tricks that will help you craft the next #1 smash? David Pogue talks with Neil Sedaka, Ashford & Simpson’s Valerie Simpson, and author John Seabrook (“The Song Machine”) about the genius of pop songs, and then collaborates with producer Oak Felder on a song that undoubtedly will be the next big hit.

MUSIC: Raffi, the children’s troubadour
For more than 40 years the folk singer-turned-rock star to kids has been singing songs to delight the young at heart. Serena Altschul sits down with Raffi Cavoukian, whose hits like “Baby Beluga” and “Bananaphone” have appealed to multiple generations of fans.

Huey Lewis
Huey Lewis and the News are in the mood to celebrate, joking about their age as they prepare for the release of what is almost certainly their last album, titled “Weather.” At 69, Lewis, who has performed in bands for most of his life, had no intention of slowing down, but his diagnosis of Meniere’s Disease – a hearing disorder which has affected his voice – has made the decision for him. John Blackstone reports.

DJ Khaled
DJ Khaled has worked with some of the biggest artists in music (Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Drake), and he went on tour as Beyoncé’s opening act twice. His songs are all-star collaborations, and he’s been making hits for more than a decade. The son of Palestinian immigrants, he’s a radio DJ, producer and New York Times bestselling author who is nominated for a Grammy for the song “Higher,” a partnership with John Legend and rapper Nipsey Hussle. Kelefa Sanneh sits down with the man who calls himself the “Quincy Jones of hip hop.”
