Dear Constant Reader,
Happy Friday! Here’s your tip!
Buy the song.
I have spoken previously about sending music files to producers, not YouTube or Spotify links. To acquire the song, just buy it. One song is not a lot of money — less than a cup of good coffee. If possible, buy it from a source that more directly supports artists, like Bandcamp.
Don’t rip the song from YouTube, even if it’s free and easy. Not only is that unethical, but the sound quality is not great. It may sound okay on your phone, but the better the sound system it’s played through, the more obvious the poor quality becomes.
