Nothing like a black & white image to remind us of when times were simpler and cost effective pricing was a part of our every day vocabulary.
Cost effective. Sounds so great.
Anyway - I am finding that the word "free" seems to have a negative connotation. It scares some people for some reason. We just don't trust it. As a society, we always seem to associate the word "free" with the phrase "there must be catch."
I blame politicians for that.
So what I am offering today, and every Tuesday and Wednesday, is "free without a catch." Or, if the word free still gives you the heebie jeebies, let's call it cost effective pricing.
That picture up there is of the band The Lumineers. Today we are giving away their single Flowers In Your Hair off of their self-titled debut CD that dropped on March 3, 2012. Not only are we giving it away - we'll actually buy the MP3 in the spirit of good music promotion and send it to you via the iTunes gift protocol.
- Because we want bands to be able to sell music.
- Because we want to help you discover new music from bands that you may not have heard before.
- Because we want you to discover other great singles on this album like Ho Hey and Dead Sea so that hopefully you'll splurge to buy the entire album, which is worth every penny you'll pay for it.
- Because we want you tell your friends about your great music discovery.
We want to help with all of that.
The Lumineers are not members of Jivewired.com but we hope they will be eventually.
That's not why we are buying their music and giving it away, and even if they are never Jivewired members, that does not diminish our desire to share good music - and to share music the right way - by actually purchasing it.
Look, we just like really good music and Flowers In Your Hair is a really good song.
Check out the video and see for yourself.
So get your copy before we tap out our daily music expenditure account. Just find us on Facebook, connect with us, and inbox us that you want the song. I'll make it easy for you. Just click on the following underlined thingy and it will teleport you right to our Facebook page. God I love technology.
Then find the Lumineers on Facebook and tell them how much you love their song.
We are going to give away great music every Tuesday and Wednesday, so check back here for more great selections. Same bat time. Same bat channel.
Here are this week's adds into Jivewired Radio Rotation. You can catch them by tuning into Jivewired Radio at any time. The Jivewired Radio Widget is in the top right corner of this blog. Just press play to listen. Please tell your friends. It is our goal to help you discover new, good music and tuning in will help you accomplish that goal.
By the way, thank you.
