Will Taylor Swift repeat history in 2011
21st Century marketing genius
Marketing Sociologist recommends a holiday
2011 greatest hits 2 CDs

Taylor Swift releases her fourth CD, if you include the holiday CD, in October in time for the holiday buying frenzy. Yes, she will be #1 Billboard hot albums in November.

She started 2010 on a concert tour that sold out in 2009 in less than 12 minutes. Expect the same this year as history repeats itself for Ms. Swift.

She'll be 21 in 2011. She's been on the charts non-stop since 2007. How many artists can claim that?

Swift follows in the wisdom of many other artists. As soon as one single peaks on the chart and is waning, she releases another. Unlike other artists, I've yet to hear a bad, or sound-alike, single from Swift. I don't know how she does it.

My advice would be milk about five songs out of Speak Now CD, a duet with maybe her idols, The Dixie Chicks, or whatever they are now, as she had done in the past with Boys Like Girls, Colbie Caillat, a couple movie tunes, like she did with Valentine's Day.

For 2011, after the spring and summer tour, I recommend a greatest hits package. Do like The Beatles did with the red and blue albums - two different albums. Don't combine them. No rhyme nor reason for songs on the two, just two greatest hits CDs. I recommend Left and Right. Confuse people. Hands, body parts or since 2012 is election year....

Then pull a George Jones. Announce the 2012 hiatus tour. KISS has been on a farewell tour for 10 years. How long ago did Cher do her farewell tour; The Eagles? Swift is not stupid. Do a hiatus tour. Lay low, maybe acting gigs, until 2015. Let all the music begin to creep off the charts - then bam, summer of 2015 another CD and 2016 tour, announced in 2015 - instant sellout.

21st Century music marketing:
Release a new single
Selena Gomez & Taylor Swift keys to succes
Pulchritude still sells

Selena Gomez' Round & Round fell to #3 from #1 on Radio Disney this week. Gomez is an ideal 21st Century music marketer, like her equally as talented contemporary, Taylor Swift. Just this week Gomez released a new single, Year Without Rain.

Swift does the same; as soon as one single fizzles, have another in the wings. Britney Spears used to use that tactic. Even The Beatles and Elvis Presley, so it is nothing new.

Lastly, I need to know what this trend of photographs in videos is? Thought everyone was viewing them on SmartPhones today.

Marketing Sociologist
Spotting business opportunties
Using market research
Predicted SmartPhone movies year ago


Let's say you're a retail store marketing to the Tween market (roughly 8 to 14 years old). You need your market research. If I run a contest, would it be wiser to use Miley Cyrus' new CD or the Jonas Brothers' new CD for a tie-in?

One of Marketing Sociologist's blogs is Tween Music. I'm an advocate of measurement. Matter of fact, it was my means of measuring public relations coverage that today has been bastardized into what people mistakenly call ROI (Return on Investment - but a story in the media is not a return. It's a misnomer to call it ROI).

I love Google Analytics because it is a great marketing measurement tool. Same with Adsense if you know how to utilize it - few do. Combined together, you have a powerful information tool that will provide some solid data on where your market is heading. Knowledge is power.

The Internet is a wonderful place for marketing and it gets better daily. Readers, I'd appreciate your input on what marketing measurement tools there are for SmartPhone apps and where do I find them? Thank you in advance. Please leave it in comments.

So with my Internet market research tools, I can tell you Miley Cyrus' future is as dim as her protege, Hilary Duff. Yet the Jonas Brothers are still shining as brightly as Tailor Swift. Something I predicted a year ago on gut feeling but now have the research to prove it. Miley Cyrus' recent CD sold 66 percent less than her first CD in the same time span. No figures available yet for the new JoBro CD. Maybe next week.

The numbers from my Analytics and Adsense tell me I get more visitors on Tween Music from the Jonas Brothers - almost double - than when I mention Miley Cyrus. Ironically, the Tween market is not that into either of their TV shows, but focuses on their music and videos. After all, the Tween market is not about television.

More than a year ago I told you about first run movies over SmartPhones and why the FCC vacated the broadcast band for this function. Today you're seeing the first of it. This trend will escalate for more than a decade. Trust me if you didn't listen last year.


That's why the Tween market is not showing up on television numbers. Why wait for the next episode of Hannah Montana Forever when I can watch it a week before it airs on YouTube over my SmartPhone?

Taylor Swift exposes her tomatoes


Hey, I was only joking when I posted this the morning of July 3, 2010. Didn't know Alyson Michalka would offer the real tomato by the end of daylight.

The day the Rolling Stones did Cher
and Sonny, the
Under Assistant West Coast Promo Man

Cathy McGowan, Andrew Loog Oldham join the Rolling Stones on I Got You Babe..

More Stones - Sonny Bono trivia.. March 26, 1965, Stones recorded backup on Joey Paige's Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, written by Sonny Bono, and 'Cause I'm in Love with You, co-written by Bill Wyman and Brian Cade, all produced by Sonny Bono. This happened at RCA Records' Los Angeles studio. Released on Fontana Records.



Andrew Loog Oldham lands in Hollywood, for example, meets Sonny Bono and then Jack Nitzsche when he brought the Stones to RCA in Hollywood on their first trip to California. What a welcoming committee! This Is Rebel Music: The Harvey Kubernik InnerView: Part Two

If you were ever wondering what The Rolling Stones were singing about in Under Assistant West Coast Promo Man, it was Sonny Bono, arranged for by Phil Spector.



The image on the West Coast screen momentarily moved from B-movie to VistaVision as Phil Spector’s right-hand promo man Sonny Bono greeted us at the airport with an open heart and hand to La-La Land. There was hope yet. Thirtysomething Salvatore Bono looked as whacked as the Stones – and he worked for a living! Bono was all Sicilian LA heart. Clad in barber-pole striped trousers, an Italian sweater of the sort thus far only dared by Carnaby poofters, sole- and heel-less calf-length Indian moccasins, and paisley neckscarf, he was a sight to see. - 2Stoned, Andrew Loog Oldham

Thought this was someone ripping off Ke$ha sound
Katy Perry learns pop tart lesson
California Gurls

When I heard the first minute of this song, didn't recognize the voice. Thought is was another clone ripping off Ke$ha's sound, much like everything in Disney's Hollywood Records stable sounds like someone else - like how on Make A Wave, Demi Lovato sounds just like Miley Cyrus, who sounds like Hilary Duff on much of her early Hannah Montana work.

Shows Perry is smart. Since the beginning of ROCK, artists have been ripping off the sounds that sell. Congrats, Ms. Perry for ripping off Ke$ha's sound. Some of your best stuff.

Current fav song
Highly Strung
Orianthi and Steve Vai

Miley Cyrus the new Hilary Duff
Career tanking faster than
Tidy Bowl man
The Last Song bombs


First her We Belong to the Music collaboration with Timbaland fails to chart. Same with Nothing to Lose with Bret Michaels. This weekend Miley Cyrus' first acting effort outside the Hannah Montana franchise, The Last song, bombed so bad it makes I Love You Beth Cooper look like a blockbuster.

The Last Song
came in fourth, behind Clash of the Titans, Tyler Perry's Why Did I get Married Too? and How to Train Your Dragon. The disturbing part is it opened on a Wednesday, two days before a movie normally premiers, including Beth Cooper, and it netted only $16-million. Beth Cooper opened in fifth place and netted $20-million without the extra two days.

Hope Ms. Cyrus saved some of that money she made last year. Ask Hilary Duff, or the musical act 78violet, what happens when your career tanks (Aly & AJ have moved on to acting, it appears. Even if 78violet were
resuscitated, they have lost their following.). It was Nov., 2008 I predicted this happening to Cyrus.

Critics slam Miley Cyrus The Last Song
Still going to be #1

(Reuters) – Critics slammed Miley Cyrus in her first movie made outside her "Hannah Montana" character as it opened in U.S. theaters on Wednesday, but "The Last Song" was still expected to perform well at box offices.

Cyrus, 17, who has said she wants to make a career in movies after five years playing Disney Channel's "Hannah Montana", was widely savaged for her performance as a surly teen sent to spend the summer with her estranged father.


Two previous Cyrus movies -- "Hannah Montana The Movie" in 2009 and 2008 concert film "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour" -- both opened No.1 at North American box offices with first weekend ticket sales of more than $31 million each.


"The Last Song", released by Disney's Buena Vista, faces stiff competition this weekend against new 3-D fantasy adventure "Clash of the Titans" from Warner Bros, while DreamWorks Animation's "How To Train Your Dragon" is expected to play well with families for a second weekend after its $43.7 million opening.

Bandslam DVD features different ending
Would be great marketing to have several different endings
Can't wait to see Mrs. Zac Efron live

While you're getting ready for Beastly, just caught Bandslam DVD. The DVD ends with The Daze, not Scott Porter and The Glory Dogs as in the theatrical release, winning. Thought it would be terrific if there were a whole series of different bands winning the competition. Great marketing

Wasn't she suppose to have a show in Oregon or Washington this year?

Finally figured out what the keyboardist was saying during the movie version (three different versions - movie, CD, and YouTube video) of Everything I own. It is one time; two times.

Finally, the rumor Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are being married is still on. Supposedly somewhere like the Beverly Hills Hotel. Still in June. Hottest ticket of the year!

It's all about the show
Ke$ha plays American Idol
Adding pizzazz to your act

Nearly 200 years ago, Wild Bill Cody said it was about the show, entertaining people in a big way. Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Jonas Brothers, all the big acts realize this. Alice Cooper demonstrated it 40 years ago. KISS embellished what Cooper was doing.

If your band is showing up looking like Kurt Cobain, you're missing an opportunity to take your music farther. Recently watched a battle of the bands. Only one group came on and had a stage presence. Incredibly, they did not win. The bible thumper band took top honors. Yet the crowd went crazy for the band with a stage presence.

Be it a used Jolly Green Giant costume like Ke$ha wore on American Idol to the Black Eyed Peas, add creativity to your stage act.

Expect big drop in Almost Alice CD
Sex, Gorillaz and Hendrix
Dominate tomorrow's Billboard 200


Sex sells. Ludacris' Battle of the Sexes is expected to debut at #1 on Billboard's Top 200 tomorrow, followed by the Gorillaz' Plastic Beach. Lady Antebellum is #3, and projected to be #1 again March 25 on projected sales this week.

Coming in fourth will be another debut. You think Michael Jackson did well this week with a $200-million recording contract. Imagine a guy who's been dead 40 years debuting at #4 on Billboard's 200. Wish your band could do that? Only one living person connected to The Jimi Hendrix Experience, bassist Billy Cox. Hendrix's Valley of Neptune should come in at #4. Not bad for a debut of someone gone 40 years! Wonder if Elvis ever did that? Definitely not John Lennon.

Good news, bad news
Almost Alice debuts at #5


The good news is Almost Alice debuted at #5 on Billboard's top 200 chart. The bad news is, Almost Alice debuted at #5 on Billboard's top 200 chart, not #1.

The end of January, predicted it would be #1 middle of March following its March 2 release. Two more weeks to go.
