Singles were always doomed to dye. At the end of the day, having to pay £4 for a single song is just completely overpriced. And although we are being ripped off at that price, in some way it’s not the music industries fault. It costs just as much to produce, to deliver and to store a single as it does a full album. The only difference is we get only one song for our money. Singles aren’t a viable product and so as soon as something that was a more reasonable option came out it was bound to take over. Songs over the internet are exactly that.
