A-side and B-side

In the music industry, A-side and B-side refer to the two sides of a vinyl record. The A-side is where the more popular, mainstream tracks are placed, while the B-side houses its riskier alternatives. However, some B-sides become hits, such as Queen’s We Will Rock You” and The Beatles’ I Am the Walrus”.

Leaving room for risk and experimentation is key.

My daily blog posts are like my B-sides; longer-form essays are my A-sides. Sometimes, though, my B-sides are more popular than my A-sides.
