DOJ opens probe into online music pricing

Music industry suspected of of collusion, price-fixing. I guess all the services charge the same, about a buck per song. Which is what a 45 cost when I was a kid.

Though you technically got 2 songs for a buck when I was a kid, the B sides were usually complete ass.

I guess a song is woth a buck. The buck is worth less than it was 25 years ago, but I think we also valuemusic less because it's so much more pervasive nowadays. As the costs of music production continue to dwindle, I imagine the cost of a song will stay right around a buck as the value of that dollar goes down.

Seems about right.
