Hack Your Craft's curator insight, April 19, 2014 12:21 AM

So it seems this merger is spewing the same rhetoric, but just ona larger scale. Once again these streaming knuckleheads are claiming more exposure will somehow get more people to buy music on line and to shows. “listening more, or loving a song and buying it on iTunes, or getting them to go to shows. It’s ultimately going to be great for artists.”, says Daniel Ek of Spotify. Whatever dude, you guys do you and we will do us. Your concerns ultimately do not include that of the artists so spare use the patronizing blah blah.

Streaming music killed the "secret song"

Streaming music killed the "secret song" | A Kind Of Music Story | Scoop.it
It existed in some form or another long before 1994, but Green Day’s seminal Dookie served as many modern music fans’ first introduction to the concept of “the hidden track.” Stick around long enough after “F.O.D.” and you’d hear some jaunty fingerpicking and the then-familiar voice of drummer Tré Cool.
