  1. Wow, really, how do you guys even find new music without using it?
  2. I always stream everything, usually spotify. It's so much more convenient, I've found tons of new music, and discovered older music as well. It's free! I love it, I'm 43 I don't miss buying music, I wasted so much money on it when I was younger. Stupid things, like buying a full album for ONE song. I assume the major artist still make serious money. They literally have billions of streams, they have to be doing well. Some choice to not put their music on streaming sites, like Taylor, Adele, Beyoncé, at least at first. Though they are hardly lacking for cash, but this certainly helps drive physical sales. I feel sorry for the lesser artists who might have sold a gold or platinum album in the past and made a decent living who can no longer do this, though. But even they usually have embraced streaming and put their music on streaming services. Probably because fans can readily access the artist's music, and this could help draw people to their tours or buy other merchandise, perhaps? Touring is where the real money is for all artists now. I DO rarely purchase music by independent artists I really like.
  3. I agree with those who only like Sam's upbeat songs, I can't stand his ballads. Maybe this is Calvin's way of coming out?

    2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

    Janet probably should be, based upon her discography. BUT. ..her secret husband co wrote many of her hits, so she's not really a songwriter, vocalist, musician, producer. She's not much of a performer anymore. She was absolutely nothing without Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, maybe they should be voted in?
  5. I was thinking though while it is possible to have hit songs in one's 40s, 50s are really the end. Then I remembered Cher. Completely over, and thanks to believe she's still doing farewell tours!
  6. Like. . .Imagine Ray of Light with MNDA vocals
  7. Just thinking, I liked U2s albums in the 2000s better than their earlier ones. Fifty seems to be the age for me where I lose interest in artists. Even from artists I really liked, like U2, Tom Petty, Garbage, etc. With Madonna even, I don't feel Hard Candy, Rebel Heart, or MDNA are essential to her catalogue.
  8. But can you think of any musician who made their best album when they were 50 something, as opposed to 20s or 30s? I'm not confusing them, I'm just saying it is difficult to do your best work if your voice is in decline.
  9. Really, can you think of any musicians/pop stars who got better with age? I'm talking 40s and up. It's especially hard for singers, because most of their voices decline with age as well, even if they were singing great songs.

    Has 2018 Killed the Pop Star?

    I do like Imagine Dragons. And I just heard a song on the radio by Drake that I like after all (Nice For What)

    Has 2018 Killed the Pop Star?

    NIce to see Madonna get a big acknowledgement here I can only name one Drake song, he never is played on the radio, I guess it doesn't seem to hurt his career.

    Justin Timberlake thread

    OK I just heard Say Something on the radio and I like it And I like Filthy I'm still enjoying this downfall. Or more like just being knocked down a peg or two, which is much deserved.

    Justin Timberlake thread

    If no additional dates are added, though, does it mean that most of the first batch went to secondary sites and are really selling slowly?
