The Failure of New Music- What's Old Is Outselling What's New

The music industry is having a difficult time. You don't have to sell many records in 2014 , to make it to the top 200 selling albums in a week. The top album this week sold only 139,000 copies on the March 15, 2014 chart. The Beatles album Abbey Road is on the chart at number 141, along with AC/DC's Black in Black at number 115. The fact that decades old music is still selling, is a sad statement for what the music industry is producing. Burning and "free " downloads didn't keep legacy artists from the top of the charts this week.
