The Mail on Sunday Free Inside Prince's New Album

"The Mail on Sunday has gone on sale today featuring Prince's new 10-track album and as seen to the right (showing the Irish version), the paper surely makes it eye-catching. In Ireland, recent CD album releases typically retail for €20 to €30, so even if one just buys the paper to get the disc, the paper only costs €2. What is interesting, is that going by recent reports, this paper has paid Price £500,000 (US$1 million) to give away its album, so the artist is surely not losing out. In fact, the only ones who lose out, is the middleman, i.e. the music industry."

I don't blame Prince one bit. Most artists wish they had the control over their music like he does. I'm not a Prince fan but I tip my hat to him for what he's done especially against Sony. Years ago Bowie started selling his music online, and now many others are following if slowly. I hear Frampton may do the same thing.

However, free music via the newspaper is very different. I wonder what The Mail is paying for this 'priveledge'.

I'm not - just get the paper for a very good weekly TV guide is all

 

They also have been giving away a DVD each day for a week or so now - the full 24 DVD set of 'The World at War'

With all the free dvd/cd's they're giving away, makes you wonder anyone has time to read the newspaper. :D

Oh I agree Jean - as a newspaper its reputation stinks (there was a humorous song written about it here back in the days of the Tan War in the 1920s). I only get it for the TV guide (it's about the best one for the cable channels)

 

Now Ireland's a very funny place, sir

It's a strange and a troubled land

And the Irish are a very funny race, sir

Every girl's in the Cumann na mBan

Every doggie wears a tri-coloured ribbon

Tied firmly to its tail

And it wouldn't be surprising

If there'd be another rising

Said the man from the Daily Mail

 

Every bird upon my word

Is singing treble - I'm a rebel

Every hen it's said is laying hand grenades

Over there sir, I declare Sir

And every cock in the farmyard

Stock crows in triumph for the Gael

And it wouldn't be surprising

If there'd be another rising

Said the man from the Daily Mail

 

Now the other day I travelled down to Clare, sir

I spied in an old boreen

A bunch of busy gooses there, sir

Dressed in orange, white and green

They marched to the German goose step

As they whistled Grainne Mhaol

and I'm shakin' in me shoes

As I'm sending out the news

Said the man from the Daily Mail

 

Every bird upon my word

Is singing treble - I'm a rebel

Every hen it's said is laying hand grenades

Over there sir, I declare Sir

And every cock in the farmyard

Stock crows in triumph for the Gael

And it wouldn't be surprising

If there'd be another rising

Said the man from the Daily Mail

 

Now the whole place is seething with sedition

It's Sinn Fein through and through

All the peelers they are joining local units

And the password's Sinn Fein too

Every doggie wears a tri-coloured ribbon

Tied firmly to its tail

And it wouldn't be surprising

If there'd be another rising

Said the man from the Daily Mail

 

Every bird upon my word

Is singing treble - I'm a rebel

Every hen it's said is laying hand grenades

Over there sir, I declare Sir

And every cock in the farmyard

Stock crows in triumph for the Gael

And it wouldn't be surprising

If there'd be another rising

I would not buy the Daily Mail for anything :-). It's the one newspaper (well, the Daily Telegraph is another) I would not even pick up if I saw a copy abandoned on seat in a train.

For those that don't live in the UK. Or have exposure to "Daily Mail or the Daily Telegraph", would you explain why that is?

Didn't take you for a Prince fan! :lol::lol::lol:

 

cd ;)

 

Prince can play a guitar better than the preivous best guitar player in the world, the late great Jimi Hendrix. Who wouldn't be a fan?

 

Okay, I didn't really care for his music, but he plays a mean guitar, and his performance at the Super Bowl, in February, was the best half time show that I have seen.

 

Are you describing the forum cops or the Daily Mail? :lol::lol::lol:

ROFLMAO! You troll, you. :) And, I am a moderate, but when my back is hurting, I lean a little to the right. ;)

Ok, I'll put that with a favorite son deal like James George Janos. :)

Being from the North Country with all the fishing at the lake, I will take the "troll" as a figure of speech.

 

As far as the back hurting, the editing, binning, and closing, must be a heavy load! :lol:
