The VIP Music Listening Experience
These days, I have no idea what the actual name of the song is for half the songs I listen to on my phone. They just play in a continuous stream through my earpods. I suppose this is no worse than when I had a CD player and only knew the track number of the song.
So, imagine listening to an album that is being DJ’d by the artist himself. So, as the first track ends on that Bob Dylan album, you hear Bob mention the title of the track, maybe one or two interesting tidbits about it or the upcoming song, and you continue on with the album this way.
In the case with a deceased artist, you could have different people do the same thing, e.g., producers, family, friends, other influential musicians in the same genre. With a little imagination, you can see complementary and alternate versions of the same idea.
The value here is twofold. First, your listening experience is enhanced. You know not only the titles of the songs, but also a little bit more about the whole album, and often from the band themselves.
Secondly, this service could be cloud-based, such that these snippets are served to your device as needed, which would allow them to be a value add for a distribution service like iTunes or Spotify, and should encourage people to acquire their music honestly.
