Digital Cash

The iTunes Store registered its 10 Billionth song download last week.

That's a lot of songs. Especially when you consider that the music industry is supposed to be in decline.

So what was the 10 Billionth song you're wondering?

Well it wasn't a hip-hop track. Or even a dance tune. And it wasn't anything that had appeared in the top ten in recent times.

In fact it was a song that I would never associate with digital downloading by an artist who is no longer with us.

It was Guess Things Happen That Way - a song recorded in 1959 by the late Johnny Cash.

Doubt anyone saw that coming!
