Kanye and Daft Punk at the Grammys

February 12, 2008

Kanye West and Daft Punk killed it at the Grammys on Sunday night with “Stronger”, pumping out an alternative mix of the track that was incredible. Kanye followed with a moving performance of “Hey Mama”, in tribute to his recently deceased mother. Great performance.

Why can’t I buy .mp3s of these? Is the music licensing system so complicated that it’s not possible? Seriously, I’d happily plunk down $0.99 a track for live performances and I’ve thought this for a long time. Slice Kanye’s performance into the two tracks, sell them for $1.98 and take my money. I’m not sure why award shows, artists, etc. aren’t looking at this as a revenue stream. That leads me to think it’s probably too complicated for anyone to make any real money. But, I for one would be happy to pay for quality recordings of these songs.

Anyway, watch below for the performance.
