What’s a CD Daddy?

Way back in April the name Gnarls Barkley looked and sounded a lot like an April fools joke.

Look who’s laughing now.

Their song Crazy was surely the tipping point for the digital music revolution.

Its success heralding the final days of flipping thru the racks at your local record store.

Crazy became the first ever song to top the UK singles chart without selling a single single.

Even more amazing, around 20% of the digital downloads of the song were to mobile phones.

As we enter 2007, downloads now account for almost 80% of single song sales in the UK.

If you’d have predicted that back in April people would have said you were crazy.
