I thought for a little while that I was going to do a song of the day on tumblr. Didn’t happen. Probably because I never did the Google search necessary to figure out how to turn .m4a files into .mp3 files. Silly. Lazy. But, that’s the way it went. And, now, since Posterous caught me at a less lazy moment, a moment in which I took the plunge and downloaded an .m4a to .mp3 converter, I’ll give a go at blogging some songs.
Something about the way Jay-Z thanks the audience in this track that really gets me. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a live show start off better. What with the internets and the shriveling record sales business, I don’t think anything’s more important than on stage audience engagement. Jay-Z knows what he’s doing.
