HITS HIGH FIVE:
RAINY DAY EDITION

Some people view patriotism as an opportunity to wear expensive, bizarre red, white and blue outfits. Others see it as a chance to take to streets and speak their minds. (Didn’t the new president say something about giving power back to the people?) Start a playlist with “I Think It’s Going To Rain Today” and rifle through this week’s HITS’ High Five.

I.B. Bad notes that today’s vibrant marketplace has the streaming hordes on one side and those who continue to value ownership holding the fort on the other.

Responses to the transition: Broadway stars sing for human rights organizationsArcade Fire offers a protest with Mavis Staples; John Mellencamp’s heart is broken; Gorillaz focus on “Money”; Prophets of Rage concertize; and Bruce thanks Barack.

Adele, John Legend and Metallica are among the first performers announced the Grammy Awards. Our Grammy Whisperer explores Frank Ocean’s complaint: Have the Grammys been fair to black artists? 

One of the music industry’s smartest and well-loved managers, Howard Kaufman, died at the age of 79.

Just asking: Will streaming produce golden showers during Trump’s reign?
