Music Industry Blog

At MIDiA we have long argued that Amazon is the dark horse of streaming music. That horse is not looking so dark anymore. We’ve been tracking weekly usage of streaming music apps on a quarterly basis since 2016 and we’ve seen Amazon growing strongly quarter upon quarter. To the extent that Amazon Prime Music is now the 2nd most widely used streaming music app, 2nd only to Spotify which benefits from a large installed base of free users to boost its numbers. So, in terms of pure subscription services, Amazon has the largest installed base of weekly active users.

But it’s not just in terms of active users that Amazon is making such headway. It is racking up subscribers too. Based on conversations with rights holders and other industry executives we can confirm that Amazon is now the 3rd largest subscription service. Amazon has around 16 million…

R.I.P., Chris Roberts! (Das waren noch Texte: „Ich heiße Karl-Heinz / Und komme aus Mainz / Mein Hobby ist Love!“)

Er reichte nicht an Udo Jürgens heran (und nicht mal an Gunter Gabriel). Aber ich muss gestehen, dass es mal eine (sehr frühe!) Phase in meinem Leben gab, als ich Chris Roberts (R.I.P.) mochte. Ich höre gerade wieder in sein Schaffenswerk hinein und stieß auf diesen Gaga-Klassiker:

Ich heiße Karl-Heinz
Und komme aus Mainz
Doch weil das heut nicht gefragt ist
Bin ich jetzt der Bill
Aus Blueberry Hill
Mein Hobby ist Love!

Better goes it not.

I was saddened to read the following news earlier tonight:

Maurice White always was particularly close to my heart because he was both a musician’s musician and managed to achieve pop hits. I think I hated „Boogie Wonderland“ when it first came out, but it grew on me. Especially after reading the great story behind it which songwriter Allee Willis made me aware of on Facebook (check the comments section). ;-)

I started to compile a Spotify playlist with my favorite Maurice White songs right after hearing the bad news. So far, it contains 4 hours 28 minutes of great funk, soul and jazz (use it in shuffle mode). Artists include (in alphabetical order) Barbra Streisand, Billy Stewart, Brian Culbertson, Deniece Williams, Earth Wind & Fire, El DeBarge, The Emotions, Fontella Bass, James Ingram, Ramsey Lewis, Ramsey Lewis Trio, The Salty Peppers, The Tubes:

I configured the playlist to be a collaborative effort. Feel free to add your personal favorites on Spotify. If you don’t have a Spotify account, post your music links (YouTube & Co.) in the comments section of this blog entry. And please retweet/repost this tribute in your social media circles!
