Ive just seen that 50 ways to say goodby has been released as a single (I LOVE that song!) And it got me thinking - 42 years old, and Im totally unclear "how" something becomes a single. Does the band decide, and then the radios are alerted? Do the studios pay the radio stations, initially, to play a single, and then the radio station decides whether its successful/whether to keep playing it? How does all this work?
And is 50 ways going up the charts?
THANKS for any info!
I LOVE THE SONG TOO AND I CANT WAIT TO SEE THE VIDEO =D im not for sure how it all works but im pretty sure the band decide's what single's to let out and then when their ready the radio station's are alerted and the staions start playing the song and sometimes like my local station will sometimes wait a few weeks or so to play it after it's released as a single and sometimes they play it right away i guess that part is up to the station and i think after they play it for awhile the station decide's weather to keep playing it or not ..i have heard it twice on my station i was so happy when i heard it i freak out every time any train song comes on the radio it doesn't matter how many times i have heard it before lol and if it's not going up on the charts yet it will be soon =D ~ Kayla
Thanks Kayla! Great to hear 50 ways is being played on the radio - I hope it starts over here (in the UK)...Drive By went to number 6 (I think) on the charts here.
