Here I present another million dollar idea which will also benefit humanity.
On my way into the office today I walked by a man in ultra dark sunglasses. As I passed him he suddenly erupted into song, singing: “Girl! I work so hard from 9 to 5.”
Honestly, I am not sure much work he has been doing the last few months or even years of his life. And therein lies the opportunity.
Sitting in my pocket is a phone with two apps that can recognize songs playing in the ambient environment. What if we took an app that did basically the same thing, but when a chronically unemployed guy sings a cover, like I witnessed today, they instantly convert it into an iTunes track, pay him royalties, and take a cut. I was captivated by his rendition and it still swims inside my brain even fifteen minutes later.
Everyone wins. Love it.
