How much should an online downloaded song costs?

21 November 2005 - 05:17 AM

spurned by ACE's other topic(on DL section) , i am very interested to know what is the general view on the amount that you think one track should worth. :wub:

this is also a question that had been hanging in my heart when downloading of mp3 become a worldwide phenomenon. at that time, those major companies said that people will have the comfort on accessing to online legal tracks, without hassle, and more importantly, same value as per track of a CD.
yet, this had not been the case. currently, cost per track is roughly/usually $1.99SGD locally(in Singapore). if translate into a full CD from rack , (comparison shown as below):

online: $1.99 per track ---> "virtual CD" of usual 15 tracks will therefore costs: roughly $30SGD.

from rack: per CD from rack: $20SGD(generally).

the issue in doubt: online track costs more... why? online requires server and maintenance. but a shop retailer will have to include shipping costs , rental&overheads(hiring of employees, etc) / other miscelleous costs.
more over music companies will be able to direct sales of its releases, instead of sharing profit with those major retailers. it should result an even lesser price per track then. :)

please state your views on this as well. :P

this is my first time using this new polling, please give support. thanks. :notworthy:

寶兒 ─ 「Girls On Top」可見音樂的成長

Posted Image

發行第五張專輯的寶兒,在此張專輯中不只可以看到寶兒成為20歲的成長,同時也可以欣賞到音樂方面的成長。專輯中共收錄了13首歌曲,包括了Urban soul、R&B dance、Pop ballad以及Acid Pop等多樣曲風,可以讓大家發掘到寶兒多樣化的魅力。

主打歌〈Girls On Top〉是身兼R&B歌手也是作曲人的柳英真所作,是首Urban soul 曲風的歌曲。可以感受到寶兒那更加強烈的音色,同時也可體驗到似喊非喊的新式唱法。

Urban Soul曲風是將Instrumental作了最簡單化。旋律本身就兼具著Chord的原Chord式歌曲,是最近受到極大歡迎的曲風。而〈Girls On Top〉是在這種曲風之下加入了Rave與Big beat的音素,傳達一種更加韓國式及強烈的感覺。此首歌曲就像歌名本身一樣,是在講述現代女性所感受到對於男性優越主義的想法。

除此之外,為〈My Name〉作曲的Kenzi也替寶兒量身訂做了〈MOTO〉及〈空中庭園〉兩首歌曲。

此次第五張專輯從20日開始會先透過音樂網站"iLikepop.com"發行Digital專輯。從21日開始也可以透過手機下載欣賞到。

另外,寶兒將會透過26日的SBS〈人氣歌謠〉歌唱節目,展開華麗的Come Back舞台,讓久等的歌迷驚艷。
