maserati life?

whoa! i just heard a maserati song [i'm pretty sure it was 'language' or 'moving with heavy hearts' off the language of cities nope, it was 'Ambassador Of Cinema' - thanks marah] in 'sorority life'. does anyone know if bands get paid for this? i just find it interesting. i'd like to know how much bands make, if anything, for the use of their song! i know charming have been played on it too [but last season]. anyhow, if anyone knows, let me know. i just think it would be wierd to not get paid anything since they're using a song to actually drive plot points into the show. there is no mention namedropping of the band names in the credits either. how do they get recognition?

Current Mood: curious
Current Music: it was...bogdan raczynski - ibiza tm

is how bands get recognition. i read an article about it somewhere, as in... tiny bands that get used on dawsons creek because they send in their cd. they get... a small amount of money, depending on the show, and then sometimes sell more cds, sometimes not.

i heard ida on the real world recently. don't even talk to me about how that made me feel...

yea, i thought i read something about it. i think what i read was that labels get money for the use of their catalogue. i know i've heard other kindercore stuff on mtv, so i guess that would make sense. still, wierd. i just find it bizarre that 1) only a very few of the bands with their music played are actually have videos on mtv. 2) that most of these bands probably have no interest in sorority life.

meh. yea. it makes sense to me that real world would have more indie type stuff. sorority life, tho? err. just makes me feel dirty. i can't explain why.

i definitely heard Call and Response on the Real World Back To NYC...i *think* i remember hearing other kindercore stuff, too... granted, CAR isn't on kindercore anymore, are they?

march records had some stuff on there, too. Barcelona's "Bugs" was used on a Road Rules ep

oh, but sorority life... so good. they make it out to be like their lives are so dramatic, and this is so important, and it's not, and we know that.
it's like joe millionaire in that aspect, maybe.

All I want to say is that I love Sorority Life 2, but not NEARLY as much as Sorority Life 1. The sisters just seem really dull this time around.

i thought i heard somewhere that the reason all this cool music pops up in those mtv shows is simply due to the person (people?) in charge of picking it having decent taste. i have no clue about the profit/recognition though. i could be wrong- i don't remember who told me that but it's a question i've always wondered myself. half of the fun of watching those shows for me is playing name that tune. there is always something good and unexpected.

there was an i am the world trade center song played on a tv show recently (might have been mtv) and amy dykes said they didn't get any money from it.

i think kindercore just licenses the songs to mtv for the free exposure. they might get some small compensation but it's not like the band gets $1000 because their song was background music for a show. unfortunately.

saturday i was talking to ian [from the agenda] and he said someone told him they saw an agenda video on mtv2. ian thought that was funny because their video is just some crappy home video they shot and sent to mtv. haha.

the locust was played on "road rules", not to mention interpol, hot hot heat, and a bunch of other bands on various other shows. there was quite a controversy about it when the rumors first started spreading, if i recall correctly. not punk rock enough, i guess.
