Music sharing then and now

A large part of our childhood and early adulthood was spent in sourcing, copying, buying and pirating music in the form of mixed tapes, CDs, mp3 downloads, etc. The husband and his sister spent Rs 7 per song to get a cassette of their first English songs taped in the early 1990s. I paid Rs 25 to a pal from the Middle East to get a CD before music CDs became a thing in colleges in India. We hacked into secret folders on the office computers to unearth stashes of music and movies (many of us staying after-work to collect our loot). We made friends with those who knew our music. Now, all you have to do is send your Spotify/Saavn/Gaana/Prime/YouTube links to anyone who wants it.
