SoundCloud Sun, Here it Comes

The weather features in an awful lot of pop songs, as you may well have noticed, here’s my take on a Beatles classic – Here Comes the Sun. It’s my 100th upload to SoundCloud (covers and original songs, and excluding a few dodgy instrumentals I removed years ago), overall my stuff has now had almost 34,000 listens on the site, for anyone who cares about stats:

Twitter buying SoundCloud

Not sure how I feel about this, Twitter has put out its fiscal feelers to see if it can buy the audio service SoundCloud. Now, as you know I use both. Been on Twitter since June 2007 and made a lot of friends there. Similarly with SoundCloud, I’ve been uploading my musical output there since June 2007 (initially guitar instrumentals only, but in the last year or so full-on songs – I’ve even got an album out for goodness’ sake – Wishful Thinking.

I am hoping the merging of these two companies will be a good thing for getting one’s words and one’s music out to a bigger audience, but who knows? It’s not such an odd thing, Yahoo bought flickr, Google bought Youtube, Facebook bought Instagram, etc etc…

Twitter may buy music sharing service SoundCloud.
