    Digital VS PhysicalWho the hell still buys CDs? I would think nobody. Okay, maybe 10% of the world.

    I guess my idea of the world is slightly skewed because I’m surrounded by people with MacBooks and iPods. In reality (look out the window: that is reality out there) 64% of music sales is still “physical”.

    Sing along now:

    Let’s get physical, physical,
    I wanna get physical, let’s get into physical
    Let me hear your body talk,
    Your body talk, let me hear your body talk
