Truth to Power

2 million downloads…of Journey?

Journey song most downloaded catalog track

Journey have become the band with the “biggest-ever catalog song on digital platforms.”

It means that the band’s track “Don’t Stop Believin’” is the first song that was available in the pre-digital era to sell more than 2 million downloads through iTunes.

According to the theguardian.co.uk, part of the track’s popularity is to do with it soundtracking the finale of TV hit drama The Sopranos last year.

The song was originally released in 1981, then made available through iTunes in April 2003. </em>

I’d rather chew broken glass- salted- while having knitting needles rammed into my ears than ever hear that screeching ode to losers again, even just walking through a Wal Mart to buy ammo. But to pay 99 cents for the privilege? Ugh.

But a quick perusal of the top digital tracks shows such stellar artistry as Britney (she’s still alive? Who knew?), Pink, and Jason Mraz. Proving, you kids have all the toys, but no taste. Thank god those things have earbuds.
