50! In case you’re new here and haven’t seen my explanation: every night I pick a sort of “song of the day,” and after eight days, I can share it on 8tracks (and here). It turns my life into a mixtape. 🙂
Also, RIP MCA.
I was never a huge Beastie Boys fan, to be honest, for various reasons, but I have grown to dig them quite a bit, and I can let all the touching memorials around the web speak to him. But as a music fan, I know how artists like him can touch people, and seeing the outpouring of emotion for MCA was quite moving.
The good thing: your favorite musicians last forever.
