The End of CD's

Paul Simon was being interviewed the other day by PBS's Charlie Rose when he (PS) offered up this bit of sad news.

Paul Simon would probably NOT put out another Music CD and sited the reason for that was due in large part to MP3 players and shuffle-mode play.

Because of music players ability to scan and play 1000's of songs in random order, the attention span of listeners has diminished.

We don't have the time to listen to fragments to an overall theme.

Everything needs to be faster and faster.

And Paul feels the real enjoyment of music is better felt when it is slowed down.

I could paraphrase with:

Stop and Hear the Roses....
