MySpace had a big impact on the evolution of music consumption & even the music industry. That was pretty neat for me, because before I was a dotcom nerd, I was a singer in a rock band. Presumably I should have a strong opinion and some insight into the arms race between Spotify, Turntable.FM, RDIO, Rhapsody,, Pandora, Grooveshark, and... did I forget someone? I've thought about giving all these new services a spin, but I really haven't been able to find the time.

Truth is, I've long favored the subscription model for music, and I signed up for Rhapsody years ago (even when, at the time, MySpace offered free access to the same catalog), because Rhapsody was easier & faster than the MySpace web interface. Pandora too. Search & play, that's it. I didn't really care about showing off my playlists, discovering songs from my friends, or any of that "social" music stuff. No doubt that's extremely fun stuff, but if you're busy (which I was), you haven't got time for that. Search & play was just fine.

I'm sure when I hit a slow patch in my life and am looking for a new interest, I'll really dive in and pick my favorite music service. In fact, I'm looking forward to it. Right now, I've got too many other fun things distracting me from the "social" music experience. Anyway, all this was just an excuse to share this really cool .GIF.

Another great Adele cover. Love when people push their voice from deep down. Thanks +Dave Gallant for sharing a fellow Canadian's skills.

Wow...just wow :) This is incredible...
This is just unbelievably cool:

Just an ordinary day at Copenhagen Central Station. 2:32 PM.

Some guy sets up a snare drum and starts playing. Sounds like the ostinato rhythm from Ravel's Boléro. Oh wait, there is this other guy with a cello accompanying him playing the ostinato in pizzicato. A woman stops by. She takes her flute out of her case just in time to start the melody.

So far it looks just like an ordinary bunch of street musicians. However, by the time the clarinet and bassoons join you start to realize that something extraordinary is going on. More and more musicians stop by and unpack their instruments just in time to start playing! It's a full-fledged friggin symphony orchestra! In fact, it's the Copenhagen Philharmonic!

This is the best flashmob, ever!
