Jenny asks…

How do you feel about artist allowing their song to be used in commercials?

I know some artists (Tom Waits and Tom Petty for example) won’t allow their songs to be used in commercials, and while I don’t necessarily disagree with them, I have discovered some good artist through commercials (how many people really listened to Nick Drake before that VW commercial?)
You’re Thoughts?

New Niche Finder answers:

It really depends on what the product is, and how it relates to the song. I’ve seen some that are very good … And some that are not so good. Ultimately, it’s up to the artist to decide how his or her work is used (if they still have the rights to the song), and I respect their decisions.

Charles asks…

Is it better to listen to singles or albums?

I want to listen to more msic, which should I choose when I discover new artists?

New Niche Finder answers:


Albums signify an band’s complete work in a given time. Sometimes they convey entire concepts, ideas, atmospheres:
Pink Floyd – Dark Side Of the Moon
The Who – Tommy

It’s like when you see a painter’s collection. One painting (i.e a single) is only one part of the collection. The entire collection (i.e the album) says more about the artist, and gives you a chance to really experience a range of ideas/atmospheres/music. Not every painting is the same, just as not every song is the same. Albums let you listen to a variety.

Live365 has many stations, you might be interested in. As well, there are a few that just do weekly (charts) countdowns.

Ken asks…

what is the song from the Discover Ohio commercial?

Some of the lyrics include (or are very close to)

“Every color every memory”
“when I see your smile I feel like I could fly the world so small”

The commercial is not on youtube and if the Discover Ohio site shows the artist, I didn’t find it. I’m really liking this song and would love to discover the artist.

New Niche Finder answers:

The song is “Let’s Take a Walk” by Hotel Eden

You can download the song at the composer’s website by entering your email and zip code — http://www.hoteledenmusic.com/ohio.html
