Annoyed as some Apple customers may have been over being “force-fed” U2’s new album last fall, the impact of the free release is still visible five months later. Twenty-three percent of all music users on Apple’s operating system listened to at least one U2 track in January-more than twice the percentage who listened to the second-placing artist, Taylor Swift (11%).


  • 23%of iOS-device music users listened to U2 in January
  • 11%listened to Taylor Swift
  • 8%listened to Katy Perry

Apple teamed up with the powerhouse rock group to make its latest album, “Songs of Innocence,” available to iOS users for free in the month following the smash debut of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. In the face of user complaints about not wanting the album, the amount of memory it consumed, etc., U2 publicly apologized and Apple posted instructions for how to remove the album from a user’s device.

Loud as the complaints may have been, however, Kantar determined that nearly every iOS device user who listened to U2 in January – 95% of them – listened to at least one track from the new album.

Following U2 at 23% and Taylor Swift at 11%, 8% of music users on iOS listened to at least one Katy Perry song in January, 8% also listened to at least one Maroon 5 song, and 7% listened to Rihanna.

Let It Be was the 12th and final album from The Beatles. It was released on 8 May 1970, almost a month after the group’s break-up. Most of Let It Be was recorded in January 1969, before the recording and release of the Beatles’ album Abbey Road – this is why most fans and critics consider Abbey Road the group’s final album and Let It Be the penultimate. The film version is famous for showcasing a number of conflicts between the group members and has frequently been referred to as a documentary that was intended to show the making of an album but instead shows the break-up of a band instead.

This is not to say that bookkeeping is boring. Why, I know a few bookkeepers myself, who are awfully nice, even though sometimes they take an uncommon step of writing long-winded emails to explain their suitably working relationship with said client and the most recent tax laws. These are very kind, and often smart individuals with their happy occasions, as watching this extremely dull and boring video about bookkeeping will show you.

At that age, she married Gerry Goffin in a Jewish ceremony on Long Island in August 1959 after King had become pregnant with her first daughter, Louise. They left college and took daytime jobs, Goffin working as an assistant chemist and King as a secretary, while writing songs together in the evening at an office belonging to Don Kirshner’s Aldon Music at 1650 Broadway opposite the Brill Building.

Since he’s a performer at heart, it’s only natural that Jason McCoy’s career would have a a number of influences and subject matter. It was both the traditional country of Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and Charlie Rich, as well as the Urban Cowboy country of Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee that set McCoy on his artistic quest, “Country music speaks to me,” says McCoy. “That whole Mars-Venus connection – what men want, what women want — just seems to be dealt with better in country music. What I really like about country is the classic period of the ’70s, that dealt with drinking, cheating and other things on a level of emotional honesty whether it’s better or worse. That’s who we are as people. Country is the new rock, it’s the largest format in the world right now. I’ve always listened to George Jones, Willie, Merle and all the classics growing up but started to get into more rock and roll when I was an adult in my 20s.”

Eric: A lot of these country artists that are your age or my age – our 20s [laughs], grew up with the classics artists like Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. But when you talk to country artists today, their influences are those, but they’ve added Led Zeppelin and AC/DC.
Jason: Old country is Garth. Which is cool, they’re born in a different year and it is what it is. For me, I look at country as the new rock and roll. I’ve been blessed to be able to do this closing in on thirty years and our music has evolved, but the thing that never wavers, no matter what the age or no matter what the fanaticism is or whatever the trend is in country is the nucleus of the country fan never changes. I don’t care if you were 30 years old in 1982. I don’t care if you’re 30 now, or 18. The country fan, the heartbeat of what country music is, it’s called the people’s music and there’s a reason for the. I don’t care if you’re talking about newer bands like Blackjack Billy or Doc Walker. Country music is a full encompassing genre and the fans who are into it like the stories of the songs.
Eric: Why do you think that is? When audiences go to festivals, like Boots and Hearts, just north of Toronto, they like everybody on the bill. Even Jazz isn’t like that, Jazz has divisions. You’d never get that in country music, you have it in Folk music. There’s a real sense of community.
Jason: You just said it, it’s community. A lot of people say this, but the reason we do it is because it is true. It’s about the fans creating that community or the party and we’re just the soundtrack for it. The country way of life is always there. This country is built on rural roots. It’s just the soundtrack for the common people and right now it’s the hottest format in the world because it’s crossed some pop elements in it’s production, etc. For us, speaking topically, we released this song “Mud” and it went gold. It’s a huge download and the reason being is because we get out there and we know that there are all these people who are 18 years old to 40 years old who have a jacked up jeep who love to get out and play in the mud. These are my neighbors! I live on a farm, I like that and so we’re like, we’re the soundtrack of what they like to do and what I like to do. Just common people stuff, that’s country.
Eric: Pete Townshend from The Who says that as well. The Who just held up a mirror to their audience.
Jason: Yeah, look at “Teenage Wasteland.” They were singing to their audience, right? I write all sorts of stuff that I want it to connect, from kids songs to rock and roll stuff.
Eric: Tell me about writing kids songs!
Jason: I’ve got two kids. 8 and 5. Daughter is 8 and my son is 5, and I write songs with them. I have a backhoe on the farm and my son who is 5, him and I wrote a song for the backhoe. They love it.

Eric: Let’s change gears a bit. The Road Hammers split up for a time.
Jason: I was a solo artist and had wonderful success at that and just started this is as a lark, for fun, to do a trucker album and CMT turned it into a reality show and the creation of a band and the thing debuted at #1 and turned out we’re the highest selling Canadian country band in history. It’s mind-numbing. It’s all just following our heart and having fun.
Eric: What do you think the band gave you that you couldn’t do yourself?
Jason: I like writing really aggressive rock and roll and rock and country stuff, and I can’t sing it. Clay, he’s all that. He’s the rock star. It’s great, because another thing it gives me is goal posts. I can write within the Road Hammer goal posts and I know exactly what a Road Hammer is and what it’s not. But talking about the band just exploded, it was amazing, took us to Nashville, and one thing led to another and the record label we were signed with eventually folded into another label, went bankrupt and then there were lawyers and were kind of hung up for a couple of years and our hearts go broken. We just had to take a break, that’s as simple as it is. The business eclipsed the creative and it just sucked the life out of us for a while.
Eric: When you got back together, was there an elephant in the room that had to be dealt with before you started working together?
Jason: No, it was gone. We were really lucky.
Eric: That must be so irritating when record label politics come into the business of art for you. It’s has to be so heartbreaking to know that the possibility of success has changed over situations out of your control.
Jason: We were ready to go ahead with another record and the label just got caught up in the paperwork of shutting down, it was owned by lawyers, we should have seen that coming. It just went into purgatory for a couple of years. It really did break our hearts because you can’t do anything. You can’t even dream of having the ambition of saying – OK, we’re going to record an album and when this is all over we’ll release it. At the time we were told, nah, you’re hung up forever. We’re lucky, we had something on the other side of it and it worked out OK. But some of these young artists get signed, it’s painful to watch. Really painful. But we’re back on the road. Fans are #1. Talk about amazing. Those fans are amazing.

What do you think is the biggest misconception about you?

The thing that bothered me the most was when I had to return to the public eye in ’95 or ’96 when my husband died. We lived a very simple lifestyle in a more reclusive way in which he was king of our domain. I don’t drive, I didn’t have much of an income, and without him, I had to find a way of making a living. Besides working in a bookstore, the only thing I knew how to do was to make records—or to write poetry, which isn’t going to help put your kids through school. But when I started doing interviews, people kept saying “Well, you didn’t do anything in the 80s,” and I just want to get Elvis Presley’s gun out and shoot the television out of their soul. How could you say that? The conceit of people, to think that if they’re not reading about you in a newspaper or magazine, then you’re not doing anything.

I’m not a celebrity, I’m a worker. I’ve always worked. I was working before people read anything about me, and the day they stopped reading about me, I was doing even more work. And the idea that if you’re a mother, you’re not doing anything—it’s the hardest job there is, being a mother or father requires great sacrifice, discipline, selflessness, and to think that we weren’t doing anything while we were raising a son or daughter is appalling. It makes me understand why some human beings question their worth if they’re not making a huge amount of money or aren’t famous, and that’s not right.

My mother worked at a soda fountain. She made the food and was a waitress and she was a really hard worker and a devoted worker. And her potato salad became famous! She wouldn’t get potato salad from the deli, she would get up at five o’clock in the morning and make it herself, and people would come from Camden or Philly to this little soda fountain in South Jersey because she had famous potato salad. She was proud of that, and when she would come home at night, completely wiped out and throwing her tip money on the table and counting it, one of her great prides was that people would come from far and wide for her potato salad. People would say, “Well, what did your mother do? She was a waitress?” She served the people, and she served in the way that she knew best.

This is a real video performance from “Unconditional Rebel” by Siska, a slow motion video, a sequence map with a traveling in front of 80 extras placed on 80 meters along a little road, lost in an industrial area. Filmed at 1000 frames/second with a Phantom flex 4k from a car driven at 50km/h, the shooting took 5 seconds for a 3’30 video: a living and dreamlike mural.

That’s right. 5 seconds.
