Now i don't know how radio stations work there, but if requests are allowed, i hope you guys are requesting for the song. Some people say that Radio 1 and Radio 2 are the major stations who have wide audiences, and without their support, it is very difficult to sell a song. Sophie was lucky with Heartbreak, even though Radio 1 didn't support her, she managed to sell in millions, and chart on the higher side of the Top20. But at least Sophie had a whole lot of performances on TV, but so far, i've seen nothing.
"If you look at the Compare My Radio website, it would seem
that the only radio station supporting Bittersweet has already dropped the song.
Scroll down to track play history.
I hope Team Sophie have some sort of back-up plan
because if this album's campaign was supposed to ride on Bittersweet than it is
not looking very good."
A friend of mine told me that Bittersweet is getting played on TV, but it was played late in the night. I haven't seen the video on VH1 or MTV as yet. Again, i don't know if i should be worried, because the single isn't out before May, so there's plenty of time for it to catch on, but can we do something about it?
I'm trying to get the local stations here to playlist the song. Here we can actually head over to the website and request the music manager to playlist a song, and based on the reactions they will continue to play it. If such a policy exists there, i suggest you guys to start requesting..
What you can also do?
- Vote for Bittersweet on the MTV Dance chart - http://www.mtv.co.uk/channels/mtv-dance/chart
- Vote for Bittersweet in this Spanish newspaper - http://www.20minutos.es/musica/top
(you can vote any number of times on both)
Anyway, now that i have calmed down a little bit, i thought i would share a little something with everybody. I requested the guy who posted the snippet of Revolution to post Under Your Touch, and he did. So you can hear a snippet of that song now - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fn3bkBuV58U ... it's pretty decent. But then again, i shouldn't be judging this from a clip. Anyway, he also sent me this, which has the intro to Revolution. It sounds amazing...
