In April 2010, I posted a song for consideration after seeing a request for submissions. I heard nothing back, and soon forgot about it.

Imagine my surprise when - three days ago - I got an email saying money had been sent to my PayPal account for placement of my song in an episode of the American TV series "Hellcats". My first thought was "Oh sure. This is definitely a scam", but a quick peek into my account showed the loot was there. grin

And the song title and my name are at the top of the Featured Music credits on the episode's web page. smile (For some reason, my collaborator's name isn't listed as well. However, I've contacted the site moderators and requested that they adjust the information.)

Anyway, to say I'm 'tickled pink' about the placement would certainly be an understatement. grin I guess this will be my '15 minutes of fame'. wink

Hey Donna...

Great news.
Maybe you could post the particulars when you find out and we can watch for it.

It's a great achievement, Donna!
Make sure to use it when you pitch songs elsewhere. This kind of track record is interesting for publishers, and might just help you along, especially when you get more placements.

It's saying that your music is both marketable and useable!

Can we hear it somewhere? It's interesting to hear what's working out there..

Just back from Amsterdam, so I couldn't respond earlier.

Roy, Everett, John, Colin, Vic, Larry, and Magne (and John again), thanks for dropping in. smile
I still can't get over this little placement victory. smile
It certainly is very encouraging.

Fact is, I've been having a bit of a break from lyric writing (well, at least until FAWM wink ). However, I have a lot of songs sittlng idle on my computer, so I feel motivated again to try getting them out there.

Here's a link where you can read about the 'Hellcats' episode (Season 1: episode 21; it was aired on May 10, 2011).
http://www.tv.com/shows/hellcats/land-of-1000-dances-1381796/

Scroll down, and you'll see the song title and my name under the Featured Music credits.

In the episode, the song plays from about 0:23:25 to 0:24:57, as background to a conversation between two of the characters.

Here's the song.
'A Stone's Throw from Rock Bottom'
Music & Vocals: Patricia Dovidio
Lyrics: Donna Devine

Here's a clip from the episode.

Got your email Donna..

Cant tell you how happy I am for you. I ALWAYS thought from day one and upon leaving feedback on your first posts here that you had something. And you were VERY professional. It's one thing to be that with a lyric or a song but to have it in attitude is HUGE.
It makes all the difference....

Hope there's many more....

Mike


Thanks!

Tom and Mike, thanks so much for your comments. I've always appreciated the ongoing encouragement from both of you. smile

Tom, no secret. wink I joined Music Dealers a couple of years ago. If I remember correctly, it was new at the time, but I thought 'What the heck. It's free and it's easy to upload'. They have an online contract that you need to read and agree to. At this stage, they're only set up to send payment to one payee, so that person is responsible for splitting the proceeds with any collaborators (which of course I've done wink ).

I myself am also very impressed with Music Dealers...they seem to be a very professional company and they get alot of placements...I only learned of them recently and when I did I posted the info on JPF for everyone to check out...I agree its a bit of a headache to have to designate one person as the payee instead of checks going to different writers on the song-but oh well money is always some kind of problem aint it-lol......again congratulations on getting the song picked up for TV and let us know of all your future succeses..if you keep getting royalty checks you will need a tax deduction-marry me-I am at least good for that crazy

I'll keep that in mind, Tom. Who knows...if it comes to the crunch... wink smile grin

I agree, Music Dealers seem to be pretty professional. On the one or two occasions I had a query for them, they got back to me straightaway, and answered clearly.

Excellent news, Donna! Starting to do the same on musicdealers myself, so that is so encouraging to hear! Just keep submitting, & who knows, eh? Slow & steady wins the race, eh? lol Or to quote a Pantene ad: "It won't happen overnight, but it will happen!" I can't complain, I have 2 songwriters working on 2 of my songs, or I should say backing instrumental tracks, one of who has a publishing contract with BMG. It all takes time. Once again, congratulations, & keep writing!

Bob, Mackie, Douglas, Z.Mulls, and Shayne, thank you for dropping by. smile
Yes, it was quite a thrill. wink Once I have a bit more time (I hope by the end of January), I'll send MB a few more songs. Would be nice to have another '15 minutes of fame' in 2012. grin

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, Shayne. wink

Thanks for telling us about this site...I have posted several there now...and hope I am as lucky...we will see.

:-) I am hoping this songwriting adventure will pay something instead of costing for once.. laugh

With or without the money I think just knowing you did it would be GREAT.
Of course if money comes with it DON'T TURN IT DOWN
Congrats on the success

Kim, Bill, and R. Shayne, thanks for dropping by. smile
I'll keep fingers crossed for you as well, Kim. wink
You're right, Bill. The money was secondary. wink And split three ways, it didn't go that far anyway, but I did appreciate it. wink
Yep, for me it was one of the coolest happenings in 2011, R. Shayne. grin
