  Single (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most CD singles have only one main track and are usually named after this song, but some may have a double A-side, where two tracks are given equal billing in the title of the single.
Although non-album singles are sometimes released, the lead tracks (and sometimes B-sides) of singles usually come from an album (either one already released or one about to be) and the release of the single is partly to promote sales of the album, and to ensure radio playlisting.
Dance music, however, has followed a different commercial pattern, and the single, especially the 12-inch vinyl single, remains a major method by which dance music is distributed.

 Single (music) - One Language   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
In music, a single is a song considered commercially viable enough by the artist and record company to be released separately from an album, usually featuring on an album as well.
Singles often feature "radio edit" or "single edit" versions of the main song, which differ from the original recording in being edited to an attractive length for radio play, having expletives censored, or both.
Singles have been issued on various formats, including 7-inch, 10 inch and 12 inch vinyl discs (usually playing at 45 rpm); 10 inch shellac discs (playing at 78 rpm); cassette, 3" and 5" CD singles and 7 inch plastic flexidiscs.

 Music (Madonna song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Music" is a song by American singer Madonna from her 2000 album Music.
After the release of the single, it would become clear that it was in fact the finished version that leaked onto the web, but only the first three and a half minutes of it.
(Ironically, the single preceding "Music" at number one was Jackson's "Doesn't Really Matter", which gave Jackson the record.) Eventually it went platinum, selling over a million copies, proving to be one of her biggest-selling singles.

 Single out your music taste - Technology - www.smh.com.au
With talk of Apple launching its iTunes Music Store in Australia, the single is about to be declared king, and the concept of recording a year's output of songs and calling it an album is in terminal decline.
Today's young music buyers think much less of suffering a pop group or artist's entire yearly quota of work, which is often recorded just to meet music labels' contractual obligations.
The Beatles refused to lift any singles from the album: certainly, the singles Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane before Sergeant Pepper's arrival hinted at the style to come, but by the time Pepper emerged, the Beatles had adopted the attitude that their concept album spoke for itself, and no three-minute cut was necessary.

 The sad death of the pop single - Music - www.theage.com.au
It wasn't just about the song; the single record was about the sleeve, the label, the vinyl, what it said on the run-out groove, what was on the B-side.
That was the beauty of the single: it was a little package of design, attitude, music and society, part of a DIY culture, where the future of pop was organised from a series of teenage bedrooms.
The death of the pop single means that a certain texture and flavour of ownership has gone.
