"No More "Long Walk" Please"


          

i knew this was gonna happen.

from the time i heard her sing it live, i knew it was gonna be a hit.

i purposely avoided listening to it outside my copy of the record, so as not to get caught in the "radio killed the radio song" phenomenon.

but they got me anyway.

i can't take it anymore.

for a minute here in LA you couldn't pay 'em to play her, now she's every third song played (just this one single dough).

i love her, and am proud of her success, and can appreciate a "long walk" both for it physical and mental health benefits...but i KNOW her feet gotta be tired after walking this long

labelguy...somebody...PLEASE can i get the next single?

(seriously though, at what point is it decided that a song is "dead" and that it's time to release the next song? could one of you music types help me out?)

"Is it the way.... you looooove... me baby......?"

That song... it's later in the cd, bout midway...

Haven't listened to mine in a while. Come to think of it, it might be "Is it the way... he loves..." no never mind. I was right the first time.

I've heard it several times. People are having Jilly fever.

I feel you on Long Walk though... that was my FAVORITE track off the album, I put it on so many mixtapes and played it for all my friends, indoctrinated it as a nightly relaxation track for my girlfriend and i...

Now I can't take it anymore. When I hear it, I feel like I'm gonna scream. Radio killed it for me. And the remixes? I didn't feel any of them.

26. "He Loves Me"
In response to Reply # 7


  

          

There is a white label house remix of "He Loves Me" that has been getting MUCH PLAY in Chicago and San Francisco. I don't know how it's doing in other parts of the country.

Hidden Beach (aka "Label Guy" for Jill) told me they're not planning to release "He Loves Me".

33. "Gramaphone on Tuesdays and Thursdays."
In response to Reply # 29


  

          

Hit up Gramaphone on Tues and Thurs afternoons. That's when they get their shipments in.

With these sought-after bootlegs, what happens is the store will only order a few in the 1st shipments. Many times those few copies will be sold w/in 2 hours to ppl who know when the shipments come in, or to folks who pre-order them. When "All I Do" finally hit Chicago, I was at the store on that Tuesday w/my boy who's a DJ. We got there at 6pm and there were NO copies left. Well, there was one copy but it was spoken for. Some cat left it sitting on top of a rack while was looking through records w/his back turned. My boy and I snatched that record and did an express check-out and jetted before Old Dude knew anything was up.

The BEST thing to do is to get to know the staff there. That way you get a heads-up when something hot arrives. They'd love you there...You're Mike Love! Do you know anyone there? You must....

aside from the jill thingy (specifically anyway)

would any of you in-the-know music types like to explain the process by which singles are released?

who picks em and in what order? at what point is it decided that the next should come NOW?

23. "RE: back up"
In response to Reply # 19


          

I'm here in Cali (Long Beach) and we've been getting killed with "Long Walk," -- Ever since Steve Harvey on the Beat (100.3) got his hands on Jill Scott -- They've been playing it nonstop. It getting to the point where they are playing "Gettin' In The Way," "Long Walk," and "Way" back to back. Not that I'm complaining because we all know that some of the stuff on the radio is trash. You try to turn the station to KJLH (102.3) and they have Jill on blast -- So I guess in a way we are getting both sides of the coin.

27. "Singles."
In response to Reply # 19


  

          

I'm not as "in-the-know" as some folks around here, but from the reading I've done here's how it works..I think:

At least 90% of the time, singles are picked by label executives. The level of the executive making the choices will change depending on the label and the artist. In some cases the prez of the label will pick singles (ie. Clive Davis), in other cases it will be someone lower on the ladder.

For the other 10%, I think it depends on the artist's contract. In the mid 80s (post-Purple Rain), Warner Bros. allowed Prince to pick his singles. Before that, they picked all of them. By the early 90s, they picked half and he picked half. I would think most major artists (multi-multi-platinum, upper eschelon, big name, marquis stars) have deals like that. Especially those who get producer credits.

The decisions on singles are based on one issue...MONEY. If the label believes they can make money off an album, they'll release singles. All albums get a lead-off single (except in rare cases like Radiohead's Kid A), and if that one doesn't work (meaning if album sales go no where) then there won't be anymore...which means the label has given up on the album. So the choice of first single is KEY. Back in the days when labels took time to nurture an artist (and when fans had longer attention spans) there wasn't so much riding on that first single. But these days it's "Rise and Fly". Jill is lucky to be at a small label where most of the attention is on her. If she'd been signed on, say, Columbia...her career would be dead. Her first single was "Love Rain", and it went nowhere.

Now, watch somebody come in behind me w/more info and shoot me down....lol

Celebrating May as Prince Month at Okayplayer dot com

Hey lover, I've got a sugarcane/That I wanna lose in U, baby can U stand the pain? - soft & wet
And I get discouraged /Cuz U treat me just like a child - I wanna be your lover
And U were so strange /U didn't have the decency 2 change the sheets – when u were mine
People call me rude, I wish we were all nude /I wish there was no black and white, I wish there were no rules – controversy
I guess I should’ve known by the way U parked your car sideways /That it wouldn't last – little red corvette
Be your fire when U're cold – I would die 4 u
Oh - every single day is a yellow day /I'm blinded by the daisies in your yard - condition of the heart
Meet me in another world, space, and joy/ Vous êtes très belle, mama, girls and boys – girls & boys
And it was Joni singing, "Help me, I think I'm falling" – dorothy parker
Come bathe with me – let's drown each other in each other's emotions – when 2 r in love
Ah, ah, every time U kiss me - lemon crush/Nay, I can't resist thee - lemon crush- lemon crush
Love - come quick/Love - come in a hurry - theives in the temple
Just when U think U've got more than enough /That's when it all up and flies away – money don’t matter 2 night
I am yours now and U are mine /And 2gether we'll love through all space and time /So don't cry /One day all 7 will die – 7
So here I sit in my lonely room lookin' 4 my sunshine/But all I've got is 2 cigarettes and this broken heart of mine – 17 days
The act of showing her how good it used 2 be /I want it 2 be so good she falls back in love with me – I hate u
Girl, can U understand I never used 2 go dancin'? /I.. I was the kind of man who'd rather stay at home – pink cashmere
And by the stroke of midnight she wanted some more (more) /Showin' dirty movies like some kind of whore - dinner w/delores
Sittin' in the corner in your underwear /Lettin' me caress your nappy hair - joint 2 joint

Don't listen to the radio.

Don't watch BET.

Just get your shit off the internet.

You'll only overplay songs if you want to that way.

Just thought I'd throw that in there . . .
