PURCHASE A SHARE IN ROYALTIES FROM A SONG THAT DOESN’T EARN ROYALTIES ANYMORE
Remember when I posted Enuff Z’Nuff’s awesomely terrible video for “Fly High Michelle” back in September? Well, in case you don’t or just need to re-live the glory, here’s the clip again:
Amazing, right? I mean “amazing” in the sense that “Holy poop I cannot believe anyone ever thought that this was an okay idea,” not in the “GOJIRA LIVE!!!” sense.
ANYWAY, I mention it because Bring Back Glam reports that fans – assuming this band still has any – can now “purchase a royalty earning share… of either ‘Baby Loves You’ [another Enuff Z’Nuff song] or ‘Fly High Michelle.’”
Now, granted, I don’t know all that much about how royalties get paid out these days, but how valuable can an Enuff Z’Nuff song really be? It’s not like it’s a Poison song or a Motley Crue song or some other old cock rock piece that people still actually listen to, either because they love it ironically or they’re confused about what decade we’re living in. Does Enuff Z’Nuff even exist anymore? No, seriously, I’m asking. I’m too lazy to look it up.
Anyway, if you care, here’s the press release with more details:
SongVest, the company that reinvented music memorabilia by auctioning song rights directly to fans, has announced their next auction will feature MTV hits “Fly High Michelle” And “Baby Loves You” from 80’s power pop band Enuff Z’Nuff. The auction will take place November 21-28 exclusively at http://www.songvest.com.
To help commemorate the band’s 25th anniversary, Enuff Z’Nuff founders Chip Z’Nuff and Donnie Vie are rewarding fans with a piece of their shares to singles from their first two critically acclaimed albums. “Fly High Michelle,” a touching rock ballad that topped the MTV Video chart, and “Baby Loves You,” an in-your-face pop gem that combined metal and melody, will be available for bid. In addition to a portion of the song’s royalties, the winners will also receive a personalized and signed one-of-a-kind platinum album award.
The auction will begin at 3PM EST on Saturday, November 21 and end at 3PM EST on Saturday, November 28. Fans can register now at http://www.songvest.com to learn more about royalty history and how the songs were written.
