The best 8Tracks.com mixes for March, and why digital music is the future social media.

.

Some writers like to write in silence, just pounding away at the keyboard in silence with the only sound being that of the fans in the computer and the click of the keys of the keyboard. Some writers are like me, always having music playing in the background. I am always  listing to music, at home writing, at the gym and at the airport waiting for a flight.

Music is a big part of my life, and as a result I am always looking for new music to listen to. The music industry knows that there are many people who are like me – always listing to music and always searching out new music.

Worldwide Digital Music Revenues in 2006 was $2.9 billion. Six years (2011) later it is $14.8 billion. Growth = 486%

Worldwide Music Industry Revenues in 2006 was $60.7 billion. Six years (2011) later it is $67.6 billion. Growth = 11%

It is clear to see that digital music is the strongest growing segment of the music industry, and is the future of music.

Even though Pandora and other ‘digital radio’ are a good way to listen to music, people still like to buy music, have collections and share them with their friends. For me, the best way to do this is with 8tracks.com

I listen to it, like I would to a digital radio, but I get to also have the social media experience by putting up my own mixes. This allows me to contribute my own ‘digital radio’ station. For me, this is the future of music, collect, share, discover – social music.

Since 8Tracks.com has iPhone and Android apps, I can listen anywhere on my phone, and I can even make mixes right off the music on my phone. The future is truly here.

As you can tell, I am ‘sold’ on 8tracks.com and can’t not say enough positive things about it.

So, to help share (and to make it easier for me to listen to these on the fly), below you will find my latest mix, as well as some of my favorite mix from other members of 8track.com
