Seems the famed catalogues are sucking the air out of music for national/regional commercials. And most of the songs don’t fit the product to my mind (or ear). All you hear are very familiar songs from the radio only days accompanying Volvo, Geico, what have you, commercials. Even if you have the master and all the rights to a song, unless it’s a familiar tune playing to the generation targeted, it won’t be bought for TV use now. As far as buying music, I’m in that category - the last album I bought was Bridge Over Troubled Waters and it cost me $12. I think you can stream on Sputterfy for $9 a month anything you want to hear all day long. Thanks for the insights, MAB (and others here). All interesting perspectives. The big boys and gals, Sony, Warner, etc. do employ lots of people tho.
