Request Living For Love on the radio! UPDATE: time to focus on the next single

Recommended Posts

it's because most people pre ordered it and already have the song. except for the UK. thats what i think anyway

Why didn't they hold back LFL from the pre-order in the rest of the world like they did in the UK? I never understood that.

I hope so too! Was kinda disappointed she didn't do SNL40 but fingers crossed for a regular SNL appearance (performance)

That was a real missed opportunity. :(

Will one of yall email cruz@1061kissfm.com and request L4L right now? It's Dallas' biggest pop radio station. I've already emailed him in the past.

Also, just one person should do it so he doesn't think he's getting spammed.

He's the DJ who said that he'd argue that L4L is a great song, called Madonna 107 years old, and then called the song "Living it Up" after it was played...

Done, hope he plays it!!

Great! Let us know if he replies. He replied (with a snarky comment, and a promise to play) last time I emailed him. Edited by vertigokane

Just requested for an hour in most of the links. Haven't done this... ever. Interesting that the bigger cities have her on rotation (NY, LA, Miami...) If they play her more, the smaller towns will follow through. C'mon guys, we have 2 more weeks to keep this going.

I also hope the bitch throws a bone and performs on tv prior to the album release in US.

Can somebody tweet that twat Oseary to book something? Does he do anything besides looking eternally like a car salesman without energy?

March 10 is coming up. VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!

Well apparently Z100 dropped the song from their playlist. The last play was this past Sunday @ 12:37 am. If this is the case airplay will continue to decrease rapidly. I hope I'm wrong.

Why do radio stations drop the song? Because it's not doing well? If they don't play it, keep ignoring requests of course it won't do well.

I hope it's not true. Enough with the fucking rolling effect, as if they needed more excuses to not play a new Madonna song tumblr_n30m9pRqpX1t1bekoo3_250.gif

When the record label pays radio stations to play the song.

It was some sort of a deal, just not very strict. There was some flexibility. Do you think all iHeart radio programmers around the country woke up two Saturdays ago and decided they were going to add LFL on their stations all together at the same time? It was an automated add. A corporate decision that had an expiration date from the very beginning. None of those adds was genuine. No wonder why other companies apart from Cumulus did not touch it.

Erm, I know what a payola deal is. I meant what payola deal is this user talking about?

I guess people really aren't feeling the song? I don't get it though. It's as good as anything else on Top 40, and its distinctly unique. It doesn't help that DJs are so automatically ageist against Madonna these days.

GMAYL had payola and the song was inescapable for a few days. This one has enjoyed scattered play at best in some stations.

GMAYL had a radio deal to spin it for three days every hour and LFL did not have that for some odd reason....there would have been way more play if it were a payola scheme....it probably just got a call from one of the bosses or ceo's that hold a share in iheartradio.

who changed the title? a new comer? lol

She should make an interview on Heart Radio. Why no radio, like BBC2 give her a whole hour or two where she'll talk about music and select the records they play ? That would be something new.

EDIt : she already did that with Jo Whiley....that's when she talked about When doves cry....but 2 hours of this would be great.

It's funny how you previously said this wasn't a deal, and now you are.

who's listenning to radios? Please.

Broadcast radio accounted for 52% of all listening time, or just over two hours per day. That figure includes time spent listening to online simulcasts from AM or FM stations. Broadcast radio's place as most favored audio format isn't a surprise. About 92% of Americans age 12 and over listen to broadcast radio, according to Arbitron.

Owned music accounted for 20% of listening. Included in this category are CDs, digital downloads, vinyl LPs and, presumably, even cassette tapes. CD listening comprised "a significant" part of the owned music category, according to Edison Research President Larry Rosin.

It was not payola...

Federal law and FCC rules require that employees of broadcast stations, program producers, program suppliers and others who, in exchange for airing material, have accepted or agreed to receive payments, services or other valuable consideration must disclose this fact.

The GMAYL deal was announced in a press release by Clear Channel, nothing for LFL. It was only a radio push, not payola...

I'm sure there was some sort of deal, but it obviously wasn't a straightforward "payola" situation like GMAYL. My guess is that Interscope bundled LFL along with a few other new artists/songs in a package. Not sure what the stations got in return, maybe the guarantee of artists performing at summer radio shows, Jingle Balls, etc. or something different. But there was likely no exchange of money for play. Either way, if people are interested in the song, it would continue on its own. There are lots of other factors at play though - and a 56 year old woman is just not going to enjoy those other factors.

I think Madonna should do a really avant grade album, something that wouldn't get played on radio anyways - then license the songs for commercials, film, popular video games and explore other ways to get the music out there. Madonna shouldn't have to beg for a spot on radio. Period.

"ok..let's make a payola...play this song randomly sometimes during the day...but not too much please...."
