Evolution of Music - Statistics

Cool video created by pr and social media firm SimplyZesty talking about the evolution of music through statistics, found on

"PR firm SimplyZesty manages to cram the evolution of digital distribution into a punchy three-minute video. Starting in 1970, the video tracks the rise of digital sales, the fall of vinyl, piracy and major milestones like Michael Jackson’s video for “Billie Jean” and the most expensive guitar ever sold (a Fender Stratocaster for $2.7 million). In truth, the video is less the “evolution” of music and more an interactive infographic that highlights the uncomfortable balance between the music industry and its digital challengers. The video clearly serves to hype SimplyZesty’s ability to make cool videos, but it’s also a nice little rip through how drastically different the music industry now is."
