YouTube Wants to Fix its Awkward Relationship With the Music Industry – The Verge

….the industry has railed against what it perceives as low payments from YouTube for years; and SoundCloud, one of the most popular ad-supported streaming sites in the world, is on the brink of collapse. But the truth is that ad-supported streaming isn’t going anywhere. YouTube is too big to fail at this point, and labels have largely come to terms with Spotify’s free tier due to its high conversion rate.

And I feel the hurt, it’s in the words you say

So I ask again, Am I so alone and full of pride?

To never speak out, This is my world, this is my world

Don’t tell me now, I won’t feel those words

So many years pass yet similarities are obvious.   Was David Bowie being clever, leaving behind a message for us?    Or was it his goodbye to Thomas Jerome Newton?

1976 and 2016

Some who’ve followed Bowie over the course of his career deliberate about what meaning or message he was sending.   Such mystery sparks imaginative conversations and thought provoking speculation as to the message he was sending, if any.

In its retrospective assessment, history may explain the what’s and why’s and analyze why we’ve been drawn to his music and creativity.    In the meantime, myself and countless others continue to enjoy his music and other creative accomplishments.

Seriously, we all thought so for years, and was never really talked about.

At the age of 73, and after 50 years in the public eye, I’m sure many wonder why bother.  It’s good he finally just threw the closet door the rest of the way open and is living a happy life.

 

Barry Manilow and Bette Midler

Barry Manilow was Bette Midler’s music arranger and provided music for her shows at the Continental Baths in NYC in the very early 70’s.  He also wrote jingles for State Farm Insurance (Like a Good Neighbor…), Pepsi, Band-Aid (I am stuck on Band-Aid….), Kentucky Fried Chicken and others.

 

 

Thought I’d share a Barry Manilow playlist from YouTube – enjoy your favorite Manilow tune as a toast to his “Coming Out”  😀  👍🏻  😉   🎹  🎶
