Why Simon Sweetman is wrong on GhostTunes.













Simon Sweetman is a music reviewer
from New Zealand, he recently called
GhostTunes stupid and superfluous.

After looking up what Superfluous
meant, I have to say Simon Sweetman
is wrong.

This is not the Cola wars Simon, it's
not VHS versus Beta. Itunes doesnt
get to be the sole music provider of
downloads.

The people behind this, the people who
are taking charge, are the biggest people
in the music industry, and it's about the
music.

Garth Brooks is right, Itunes shouldn't get
to dictate, how his music is sold, and for
what price. Itunes shouldn't let people
pick apart, artists albums and only select
half the songs.

You wouldn't go into an art gallery and ask
to buy 90% or 60% or a person's work, a
person's creation.

Then there is the compensation, for the least
compensated people in the music business,
the writers, the people who create the lyrics,
the ones who are on the bottom of the Itunes
food chain.

This is who Garth is looking out for, just like
with his stance on used CD's. It's never been
about the money or the numbers, despite the
critics thinking otherwise.

GhostTunes is all about the music, they don't
sell watches or widgets, it's a place where
people can enjoy music for purely music
sake.

It's not stupid or superfluous.

Just something for the Simon and the doubters
to think about.
