  1. On the DVD for “Brave” there is a preview for “Planes” – the soundtrack for the Planes Preview? The Sausagefest #1.
    In the mid-90s, if you’d told me Rob Zombie would one day be providing music for Disney ads, I think only Marilyn Manson would have been a more unlikely pairing!


        1. I certainly don’t begrudge him some well-earned money. But it seemed he was ALL over the dial last year. “The Passenger” in a couple campaigns, cool. “Lust for Life” in a couple, with one re-recorded with a female choir instead of him…. erm Iggy? what’s going on? Then I heard an AM-friendly version of The Stooges’ “Loose” for some Travel Co. and that’s when I snapped !


        2. I remember hearing Crazy Crazy Nights by Kiss in a TV ad. I couldn’t believe it! THAT song, of all their songs? I was just glad to see it get some exposure.


    1. This list definitely gives you an idea of the groove we’re in.

      Although as I mentioned, in past years there was more country, jazz, folk stuff like Lightfoot…this year it was more geared to rock. It all depends on those votes.


  2. This is a pretty damn good list of songs, by and large.

    Does somebody, somewhere (no, not you, Platinum Blonde) have a spreadsheet to keep track of every song played so that there’s no duplication, year after year?


    1. Yes…I don’t know how far back the records go but at least 5 years. Every 5 years or so they might do a “reset” and put songs back on the table. The “exclusions” list gets emailed out every year. Returning it is referred to as “paying your rock and roll taxes”. So when Tom sends an email saying, “GET YER FUCKIN’ TAXES IN!” it means they need to compile songs because it’s time to start recording!
