That's a shame. But it never ceases to amaze me how little money somebody can make writing a hit song.

When you think about the odds of having a hit song are probably that of a lottery, the payoff is almost embarrassingly bad. Somebody once told me a hit songwriter can make 50 to 100,000 for a standard hit. Imagine a song being on the radio and sheet music being written up, and the writer not only gets peanuts, his name is not even known for it.

Only thing I can say is that, you were involved with a hit song, not many can ever say that.

If I can crank out a hit, I'd like the money, but that would be a decent consolation. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people liked your song. Not too shabby!
