Music is one of those things which effortlessly transcends age groups and time. Well, maybe not all music, some things really do go out of style. Those things are not limited to the music alone but also the things surrounding it, like the music video, marketing and the fashion that came with it. We’re looking at you, MC Hammer. Despite that, good music never goes out of style, it may not exactly be topping the charts ten years down the line, but that does not mean that someone has not already created a timeless piece of music.
Much like the music itself, passion for music does not fade, and regardless of age, everyone should still be able to appreciate music as they have just like they did in their teenage years and early adulthood. After all, music is not only something which has been scientifically proven to make us happier, it is also often a critical part of people’s lives to the point where sometimes it even defines them. The music industry may have changed during the past few decades, but there is absolutely no shame in being a fan of your favorite artist or performer and keeping up with their latest endeavors. Let’s see how you can go about that in the modern age, past the times of duplicating cassette tapes and recording from the TV speakers while asking your family to be quiet.
Digital lives. Digital music
It’s no secret that a rather large portion of the society probably spends more time online or on social media than they would like to admit to. Always glued to their phones or laptops, alternatively, glued to their laptop on the sofa while also watching TV at the same time. Music companies aren’t oblivious to this, and seeing an unmissable opportunity to capitalize on that target market by providing music to us through online, virtual means, they certainly have. There are so many music outlets which are entirely online which are expansive with a gigantic variety of music that you will surely find something which appeals to both you and your wallet.
Services like Spotify, Apple music and Soundcloud, all provide access to a gigantic library of music for a recurring fee. Slightly different than going out and buying your own music, but it is a convenient solution for everyday life. Not to mention, some of them have free options as well as a method to garner more customers, and considering that Spotify is cross-platform, being on: Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS and even windows phone then there shouldn’t be much stopping you from giving it a try.
Keeping it old school
While streaming services may be a good solution to the average user, some more dedicated enthusiasts greatly prefer more tangible things. Being able to buy your own CDs by going to the store and picking them up to directly show support to the artist rather than paying for some subscription, as well as having something to put on the shelf to proudly display your dedication, is a feeling you can’t really replicate with digital media. Considering you can buy CDs online as well nowadays, there is nothing stopping you from enjoying the comfort of the modern music industry while still staying true to your roots. Another thing which you can check out online nowadays are TicketOffices, and if you still have enough energy to go to concerts and gigs (which you should have) then instead of trying to find a ticket at the last minute from some resellers outside the venue, you can buy online in advance. Not only will this save you the time of day of having to go out and buy the tickets somewhere, but it will also spare you the trouble of buying your tickets from resellers outside the venue at the last minute.
