Say Goodbye to Lala

LaLa, the website where so many music blogs and websites get their streams, will be shutting down on May 31.  This closing comes only 5 months after Apple bought the five year old site for $80 million.  Speculations as to why and what will happen surround the idea that iTunes is planning on launching some new form of web streaming service.  I guess more will come later.  If you already have an account you can listen to the songs you own through May 31 and iTunes is going to reimburse you for the amount you spent at Lala with a gift card for that amount to iTunes.  What is pitchfork going to do?
