If you submitted for #Y150516AC, please send different material this time around.

They want songs in All-Tempos that could be found on the same playlist as acts like Harry Connick Jr., Michael BublŽ, Jamie Cullum, etc., etc., etc. Quoting the source: "Stripped down demos are also fine as long as the vocal phrasing and melody are well represented.

Songs like 'Haven't Met You Yet' by BublŽ would be ideal, but it should be fresh, current, and new." Please submit impressive songs that cater to a singer who always delivers a signature vocal performance, with well-crafted melodies, infectious hooks, and a big, soaring chorus. You'd be wise to have a strong vocal performance on your demo to get them excited about cutting your song. Stripped down demos are okay for this pitch.

Hard to Classify / Specialty / Novelty
Return to List of Categories

NEW LISTING -- ANTHEMIC, HEROIC, INSPIRING SONGS with Male or Female Vocals are needed for a NON-Exclusive Placement by the Music Supervisor of a Feature Film. Give them high-energy, full-length, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the stylistic ballpark of acts like Europe, Bill Conti (The Rocky Theme), Survivor, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the references as a general guide for the vibe they need:

“The Final Countdown” by Europe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcJ-wNmazHQ

“Theme from Rocky” by Bill Conti: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioE_O7Lm0I4

“Eye Of The Tiger” by Survivor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btPJPFnesV4

Quoting the source: “I know it’s short notice, but we need a somewhat urgent request for a scene in the film. We really need something with that big, cinematic, Anthemic Rock power and energy. This can go a bit cheesy as long as it really has that dramatic, soaring, ‘we will persevere’ mood and energy. The scene is for the main characters getting ready for a big challenge.”

To put it simply, give this Supervisor the kind of song you’d expect to hear in just about any of the Rocky films… particularly, the songs you’d hear in the video montages of Rocky getting ready for the big fight. Dramatic, inspiring, and motivational are all emotions that come to mind. Having a Rock component to your song could give it in edge. But at the end of the day, the heroic, inspirational, chest-puffing factor is most important! Lyrics should focus on themes of inspiration, courage, going the distance, being all you can be, etc., etc., etc. Universal lyrics still apply, so please avoid references to specific names, dates, places, times, brands, and profanity. Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced acts or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a guide for feel, texture, and tone. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

The estimated license fee is between $500-$1,500, depending on the ultimate placement. This is a Direct-to-Music Supervisor pitch, so you’ll keep 100% of your Master and Publishing rights, plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fee and 100% any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control the Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. All songs will be screened on a Yes/No basis. No full critiques. Please submit 1-3 Songs no later than 11:59PM (PDT), on Wednesday, May 27th, 2015. TAXI #U150527AR


Submit your music to this opportunity now.



NEW LISTING -- AD-FRIENDLY, CONTEMPORARY SONGS in VARIOUS GENRES with Male or Female Vocals are needed by a Non-Exclusive Music Licensing Company with a direct connection to Music Supervisors that work specifically in commercial advertising. The company is creating a high-end sampler/collection of Songs that could work well for a variety of brands, so please give them well-crafted Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs that could be found in commercials like (but NOT limited to):

Blackberry Commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNgkmujgBOA&feature=youtu.be

Chevy Commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vrorg79aNM&feature=youtu.be

T-Mobile Commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQE9agI8oyE&feature=youtu.be

Quoting the source: “The bar needs to be really high for this one. All songs you send should be obvious homeruns, and not already signed with any exclusive publishers. The style, genre, and instrumentation of the material can vary, but it needs to be something that could musically and lyrically work for a brand.”

Please submit well-crafted, full-length songs that can rhythmically, melodically, and lyrically lend themselves to a national ad campaign. Your songs can range from uplifting Acoustic Singer/Songwriter, to bouncy, quirky Indie Pop, to Hipster Indie Rock, to edgy Pop/Punk, to straight ahead Rock, to trendy Electro, to propulsive Dance/Pop, to float-y Dream Pop… just about anything could potentially work! You’d be smart to keep the depressing downer songs on the shelf for this pitch.

Our advice: Watch a ton of commercials and take some notes as to what you hear. You might be surprised how many great tunes are in commercials if you focus on just the music!

Lyrically, think like an advertising executive, but not old school like Don Draper – they don’t need jingles! Today’s advertising execs get exited over simple, universal lyric ideas like, “I feel great,” “It’s going to be a great day,” as well as “Let’s go out and party” themes, tough Rock themes that could work for car or truck commercials, or even songs that might be in the lane of Coldplay and have a “Look at me, I’m driving my Jaguar with my trophy wife sitting next to me,” vibe. We don’t like that guy either ;-)

Please avoid lyrics with specific dates, times, places, brands or profanity in them, and give them a great vocal performance no matter what your genre is! Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced songs in any way, shape, or form. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE, 50/50 split. You'll collect 100% of the Writer's share. They'll get 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD no later than 11:59 (PDT), on Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015. TAXI #U150603AS

It doesn’t mean it’s not good, but we are going to be very selective as we will only be able to use a few tracks for each genre.

Give them authentic sounding, Mid-to-Up-Tempo Songs in the general stylistic ballpark of greats like Perry Como, Rosemary Clooney, Dean Martin, etc., etc., etc. Please review the following classics as a general guide for the sound, vibe, and style they need:

Quoting the source: “We want songs that are fun, playful, or maybe romantic, with lyrics about love, dancing, happiness, being Italian, etc. The instrumental performance should sound really authentic, with live sounding instrumentation. Additional instrumentation like accordion, mandolin, guitar, or harp could work well.”

Orchestral elements would be a great addition to your song, but please be sure they sound as authentic as possible. Lyrically, be sure your songs focus on obvious Italian themes. Lyrical content in Italian can work really well, but it’s not absolutely necessary if the theme and feel of your song works.

Can Success Really Be This Simple?

Dear Passengers,

With cheaper, better gear, and more people making great music, the industry professionals who need it have more to choose from.

In fact, there is now too much music! That's why the industry pros use trusted filters like TAXI to send them what they need, when they need it.

You need a filter too! You need to know that the companies your music is being sent to are trustworthy and can get the job done. That's why I created TAXI 23 years ago... to serve both musicians and the companies that need their music with integrity.

I was reminded why I started this company when I had one of our members on TAXI TV yesterday: Michelle Lockey. Watch this video and you will probably find yourself saying, "I can do this music thing. I really can." Yes you can.

Michelle is such a great example of what can be accomplished if you're just honest with yourself and not placing blame for being "stuck" on somebody else. Watch this episode of TAXI TV, break old habits and live your dream. You can really do this!

Sometimes the best solution is also the most simple.

Talk to you soon!
Michael

P.S. Thank you for all the positive feedback on our re-organization of our Industry Listings. Our members are finding many more opportunities that fit the music they've got. It's funny how small changes can produce big results. Check out our newly updated Listings!

CUSTOM CRITIQUES

If you have material you would like critiqued without responding to a specific listing, you've come to the right place. Fill out the submission form with the song title(s) and author(s) as usual, but in place of the listing number write "CUSTOM" in capital letters.
Please include a note specifying the aspects you would like the listener to address.
For example, some members like to have their craft (lyrics, rhyme, structure, etc.) closely critiqued. Others want to know for which genre their writing is best suited (sorry, but we can't recommend specific listings for you to pitch to). Still others want a review of their photos, bios, package, etc.
The submission fee is $20 per song. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope, and make sure to specify if you want the CD back, or just a critique. Remember, these critiques are for your own edification and development and NOT targeted for a label or publisher, and therefore will not be forwarded.
