I remember being particularly frustrated one year when Peter Wolff's song "Lights Out" was a big hit. It started right in with the chorus, so you never had that safety net of a DJ talking. Unless I was sitting there with my finger on "record" for two hours waiting to hear it, I would never got the song.

I think eventually I just gave up and recorded it missing the first few seconds. But I felt so, so ... incomplete.

LIGHTS OUT! UH-HUH! BLAST BLAST BLAST!

Athletes, politicians, CEOs, English Bands, an Irish Band, never know when to quit. They always believe their best work lays ahead.

Why goodness, whoever do you mean?

I would, for the record, happily pay $20, $30 a month for a service like Emily White outlined, one containing universal compatibility with smart phones and 95% of the world's published music, especially if it were proven to distribute royalties properly. I think that's a great idea.

The other 5% I would illegally download though. And then purchase what I would like to keep.

Ha! Well, he didn't really mean it in a negative way. At least, it didn't read that way to me.

Beyond the addiction there is a drive in people that is never fulfilled. I get that.

... is the previous sentence.

I think we should derail this thread into an argument about what was he really saying about Bono and why we should HATE him.

If Bono still had long hair, this guy would have nothing bad to say about him!

I've been saying this for years. Give me something affordable and I'll take it. That's why I'm on Spotify right now. As a father trying to save up for a house and my child's college down the road, I just can't justify spending $10 on albums anymore. I'm glad Spotify allows me to do that right now, but I'd be willing to shell out $30 if it means the artists get more of the profit.

Ha, I had the same problem with that song. You can't even find it on CD anymore.

I used to have a bunch of mixtapes I'd made from those syndicated oldies radio shows - Super Gold!

For a long time, if I heard a particular '50s or '60s song, my brain automatically would start thinking of the song that followed on that mixtape. That happened with a handful of songs.

I'm not sure that's a middle ground at all. He's kinda embraces that the music business is over, which is realist, but he almost expects musicians to live off the love people have for their music, which is lala land.

enjoyed the U2 reference.

I think it's more that he expects them to get a day job like he has.

Which is challenged in the comments; can any truly great art be made if you're not spending the lion's share of your time on it? And will anyone hear it without a financial foundation of some kind?

My kid will find out.

I find it very hard to believe something like "A Night At The Opera" could be done on weekends with
beer buddies and protools.
