Busted are Number 1 with the official thunderbirds theme tune.. :mad:

:eek2: What are these record companies upto :eek2:

Its just.... NO ! .... no!

How can Busted get to number one with such a pissy song...

[/Scuse the rant]

Its been said before, from what ive heard that record companies tend to buy into their artists tunes to make them do well, is this true ? Could be here...


Opinions ?

    yeh they do buy up their own stuff.....

    singles in themselves arent evil, its just its all the record companies focus on is singles, they dont get new artists etc etc so all they put out are crappy singles, like i own a couple of singles, but they all have good b-sides on them too, preobably never got higher than 30 in the charts, other than my prodigy breathe one which went numba 1 years bk


    if all the alrite artists out there released OCASIONAL singles, then the charts would be varied and the songs would be pop, the artists may not be pop but the individual songs are

    The problem is not so much that Busted are number one (I don't really care, in a non-pretentious way), it's the fact that all record companies care about is hitting number one.

    Songs don't stay in the chart as long as they used to. They just play the song everywhere and have the artists' pictures everywhere so everybody runs out and buys the song. Then they do the same thing the following week with a different artist.

    Record Companies in "We Want Our Song To Sell Well And Get To Number One" Shocker!

    People whining about music like this forget one thing - record company intereference rarely has as much of an effect on the music as people make out.

    It's the theme to the fucking Thunderbirds movie for fucks sake, it's not meant to be a musical masterpiece, and it doesn't try to be.

    I despair.
