Apparently iTunes is gonna shut down, and here I am with my old school mp3 library in a series of windows folders that I keep on external HD's

Also downloading mp3 from bandcamp and listening on a lightweight program like foobar2000 >>>> literally all other music services and programs

not just for the simplicity but artists make more for selling mp3's straight up vs having people follow them on streaming services.

only downside that I've experienced so far is that keeping your mp3's safe and backed up is all on you. But re-downloading from bandcamp/amazon/etc is extremely simple and costs nothing since you're not on a subscription service
