Even though I am not a huge fan of Older I Get, it'll probably have a more accepted sound to the mainstream public - a more alternative sound, as Timmy suggested/questioned. I know a couple people who like this song a lot, so they'll probably listen to it a lot, and then talk to others about it. This could be a song that will lure some more fans in - and then, if there's any justice left in the world, Say Goodbye will be released, and that's when everything starts to fire up.

i am so excited, only a couple weeks left now before it goes offically for adds. 44 plays, last week, on alternative rock, probably close to their most ever... lol. it was heard by an audience of 115,000. not bad for 44 plays. on active rock 9 plays, and 31,000 people. im so pumped for this single, its more mainstream, not my favorite song. but i think this one is gonna be their biggest hit so far!

timmyrotter
01-29-2007, 11:52 AM
there are much worse tracks on comatose, Those Nights, Angles, Better Than Drugs... but really its a matter of opinion, and the point of a successful single would be to reach the largest audience possible. The older i Get in this case is a great choice, crossover potential for HAC and CHR, and mainstream friendly, its softer=larger audience, and catchy which is always good.

they must be loving the single, still hasnt been released and its broken the top 100. total of 70 plays, note: this is alternative rock. the first 2 numbers are this weeks-last weeks plays. dont worry about the others. the decimal number is the audience in millions that heard the song.

Some stations play it before it "Goes for Adds" because Atlantic released the song to radio the first week of January but doesn't actually start "going for adds" until next week because then when it goes for adds it will show a much larger number of stations and so it makes the song stand out cause it will be a larger number. It's all part of the marketing strategy. Sorry about the ridiculous run-on sentence. :-D

timmyrotter
02-04-2007, 09:31 PM
looks like it got its first major market add. id expect to see this track on some of Radioandrecords Alternative highlights, like most increased, most added etc. not as #11 but at least top 5. im actually surprised it is doing so well. this one is gonna be there biggest hit thus far for sure!!!

KTBZ-FM Houston Alternative 9 plays, 0.141 audience, this i believe is the largest audience station that has ever added a skillet song. im trying to figure out how to emphasize what this means... Whispers for example only ever had a total audience of about .730 (mil) with its 220 plays. The Older i get got .141 (mil) with just 9 plays from one station.
so basically if Older gets 220 plays at stations like KTBZ they would reach an audience of about 3.4 million. im done with my rant, but im excited!

XM Squizz

Since I don't listen to standard radio anymore (satellite radio for me ... no commercials), I am very pleased to see the attention XM has been giving to Skillet. Squizz had given Whispers a decent amount of air play so I have no doubt The Older I get will do just as well, if not better.

this one may go for adds on CHR/top 40 (the largest radio format by far) already its getting heavy play on Sirius top 40. and if it does well at HAC, it will have a much better chance of going to Top 40. its like we have a second chance to get this song popular, we need to request this song like crazy! it is multi-format friendly, so you can request it at almost any radio station now. so go to your local radio station's website and email the DJ's like crazy!

Well, Whispers in The Dark should have been promoted better then Rebirthing should have been the 2nd rock single. The Older I get isnt a rock single, this album is pretty much done getting rock fans.

timmyrotter
04-28-2007, 07:14 PM
rebirthing would have done terrible on rock formats... hence the reason it wasnt released. Older is on HAC and alternative, which is perfect. panheads should stand behind the band no matter what, Older isnt my favorite song, but ive still been requesting and promoting it like crazy. you all should do the same.

Assuming this (http://www.947nrk.com/) is the right website, how do I request on the site? Just email everyone on the contact list? Or does that belong in feedback? I couldn't find an area to request songs on the site.

04-29-2007, 05:32 AM
yeah im sure when rock fans hear a song like that they just want to rush out and by the cd....whispers in the dark would have done that had it been promoted better. How can you say Rebirthing would have done bad? All the people who like rock who I've shown it to like it a lot. The Older I Get sounds very poppy.

Skillet is attempting to cross over a little to CHR, HAC. so what? its good publicity. Rebirthing was originally supposed to be the first mainstream single, but when it was sent out to radio stations none of them would touch it. so they went with Whispers. that is only half my reasoning, the song is not secular radio friendly, especially active rock. in all honesty it kind of cheesy, and the female vocal is just not mainstream friendly... Skillet's label is in this for the money, they are pro's and they will do what they think is best for the band's publicity. i trust their descisions. one of the main reasons their single's arent doing well is the lack of requesting, and ive said this before. i do not listen to the radio that much, so i dont request to hear the song, i request to help the band.

Yeah, I know! Just a few day ago, I got a call from a friend whom I've introduced to Skillet saying that the song was on the radio again, and then placed her phone against the radio speakers in her car as the song played. It was pretty cool.

The best way to get your song played is to call in!!! it not as scary as it sound, turn your radio off, there is a delay anyways, and its like you are talking to one person.
