Today’s number one selling track in Amazon’s MP3 store is “Right Round” by Flo Rida.
Why is this obscure track today’s best seller? It was played over the opening credits of CSI: Miami last night. I know because I used Shazam for the iPhone to figure it out. There are a number of web sites that identify the songs played on TV shows as well. I think there’s a lesson in this for the music business.
Update: Rogers Cadenhead’s post on Life on Mars has some interesting music-related notes as well.
