Do you think that the flute part in "Down Under" by Men At Work sounds like the old song "Kookaburra"? Some judge did, and is ordering MAW to pay millions to the company that owns the rights.

Paging Dr. Rodgers....

"There were five honorary degrees handed out during a special ceremony at Middlesbrough Town Hall on Friday 27 November. Among the recipients were singer-songwriter Paul Rodgers, who received a Doctor of Letters and The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, who received a Doctor of Laws.

"All the honorary graduates spoke of their pride at receiving such an accolade in the year Teesside was crowned University of the Year in the Times Higher Awards.

"Paul Rodgers said: 'Middlesbrough is where my roots are. I left when I was 17 and travelled all around the world, but I never dreamed I would be invited back to come and receive a doctorate - I am very, very proud.'

"International author Adele Parks, who received a Doctor of Letters, added: 'It's just the best year to become part of the Teesside family. University of the Year, it doesn't get any better than that - it's absolutely overwhelming.'

"Our 2009 honorary graduates are: Paul Rodgers - Doctor of Letters Singer-songwriter Paul Rodgers was born in Middlesbrough and the founding member and main songwriter of the bands Free, Bad Company and The Firm with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. Since 1968 he has toured internationally and recently as Queen + Paul Rodgers and as a solo artist. He has released 30 albums and sold over 90 million records. He has consistently been voted number one vocalist of all time. He and his wife Cynthia quietly support over 30 varied charities internationally and in 2008 he received the prestigious US Congress Proclamation for his humanitarianism, of only eight awarded."

Since BG seems to enjoy playing variations of the Peter Gunn theme, I thought I'd provide this Crawdaddy link:

Many of the musicians mentioned were a part of the loose-knit Wrecking Crew.

Hit streaming service Spotify eyes U.S. music fans

By Antony Bruno

DENVER (Billboard) - MTV Urge ... Yahoo Music Unlimited ... Virgin Digital ... Since 2003 — when iTunes launched in the United States — all of these digital music services have come and gone, without challenging Apple's market dominance, despite the backing of resource-rich parent companies.

Add in all the startups that have crashed and burned in the same time period and it starts to look as if no service could ever rival iTunes' traction with customers and critics.

Until now.

The Sweden-based startup Spotify, launched for public access in October 2008, has momentum like no other digital music service of the last six years. It offers on-demand music streaming, in both free and premium services, and now claims to have more than 6 million users in Sweden, Norway, Finland, the United Kingdom, France and Spain. At one point it reported signing up new members at a rate of 50,000 per day, although that figure has fallen since September, when the service restricted its free version to invited guests in the United Kingdom.

Spotify has won high marks from reviewers for the ease with which it provides access to a catalog of more than 6 million tracks from majors and indies alike and the unobtrusive way it delivers advertising.

Spotify's recently launched mobile version — available for the iPhone and Android-powered devices in Europe to premium subscribers who pay the equivalent of around $15 per month — has won similar praise. Although Spotify doesn't comment on its fund-raising activity, it has reportedly won $50 million worth of backing from investors — at a valuation of $250 million, an almost unheard-of sum for a music venture in today's stingy venture capital environment. The European service also has the full support of the major labels, which reportedly negotiated a collective 18 percent stake in the company.

Yet this momentum will be tested severely as the company prepares to enter the United States — the No. 1 music market in the world — with a launch expected either late this year or early next, depending on how fast it completes its negotiations with the majors.

"It's been talked about so much I don't think it can meet everyone's expectations," says Forrester Research analyst Sonal Gandhi. "If the Spotify experience can be as good as hyped, it has a lot of potential."

With negotiations ongoing, U.S. labels are reluctant to comment on the service. According to music industry sources, the labels are impressed with Spotify's achievements but want the service to start generating real revenue. To do so, it must take care not to let the usage model outpace the business model.

The golden age of infinite music

 

Clockwise from top left: Madonna, Spotify, Lou Reed, CDs
By John Harris

Not long ago, if you wanted music, you had to save up your pocket money, take a trip to the local record shop and lovingly leaf through its racks.

Now, it's almost all free, instant and infinite. And our relationship with music has changed forever.

We all know what the alleged future of music will look like. The record industry will be reduced to a smouldering ruin, the album replaced by endless individual songs and music rendered pretty much worthless by the fact that it's universally free.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/8330633.stm



 

Spotify is pretty cool but not available in the U.S.

Regarding Harris' assertions about the demise of the music industry, much of that has been brought on by the greed of record companies with some help from iTunes. The new model won't be much of an impediment to up-and-coming artists and might allow more of them to find an audience without needing the support of a record label. Of course, somebody has to pay something.
