Covers...how does it work?
« on: August 27, 2007, 09:43:08 PM »

Dumb question...when an artist covers another artist's song, how does the original songwriter get compensated?

Love the Dolls and hope to see them come to Pittsburgh!

well, 95% of the songs amanda/the dolls cover are covered live (exceptions: "stand by your man", "two headed boy", "the lovers pt.1", and "life on mars", which have all been recorded) and i don't think you need to do anything to perform a live cover.  as for the recorded songs, i'd imagine copyright laws were discussed and such.

Not to mention that there it doesn't get much better than a sweet cover song.

Love David Sedaris, btw.

Are The Lovers Pt 1 and Life on Mars available anywhere, or are they being saved?

they've both been put on albums.  the lovers is on the brainwashed cd set, and life on mars is on a david bowie tribute.
