Music as a rental service
Hmm, let me see...
£15 per album, ten tracks per album (yeah, I know, in the olden days you got 12 or even 15...),
Lets say I keep the album for 10 years (yes, I'm aware that some strange people actually keep their albums forever).
So I guess I'd be prepared to rent for maybe as much as 1p per track per month - provided the catalogue had good coverage of the last 60 years of music of course.
Any sellers? No?
Oh wait - I forgot to factor in that eight out of ten tracks on each album nowadays are dross. So /that's/ why it costs so much... they need to recoup the losses made letting made-for-TV 'bands' record badly-sung atonal dirges....
