New habit

Mike Sudhalter  |  August 31, 2007

I'm going to start a new habit when listening to compact discs. I'm going to try to start listening to it from back to front.

It seems that too often, I don't get a chance to appreciate the last few songs on a CD. Then, I glance at the album and say, "hmmm...I don't remember hearing that song."

In most cases, artists put the radio-friendly songs in the first few tracks, or in the middle.

Interestingly enough, the final track is often the most creative, and therefore most interesting.

Regarding traditional country, its fans need to support it twice as much as the pop-country fans. Pop country fans have their loyal audience as well as a large peripheral audience that only casually listens to country. Traditional country doesn't enjoy that same benefit. That's why traditional artists need more consistent support in order to thrive in the marketplace of country music.
