Cheers Andy. I thought it would be a good realistic overview for anyone that's interested in this sort of thing.

-- Update ---

Been a little while so I thought I would update you guys.

I am just about into double figures now for placements TV shows now, the latest being The Challenge where I had 2 tunes in one episode which amounted to almost 2 minutes of music.

I've updated the placements playlist if anyone wants to listen : https://soundcloud.com/user-45178330/sets/as-heard-on-tv

I still haven't been paid any royalties ! I was hoping something would have come through by now but because they are all U.S shows and I am in the UK's performing right's organisation there is a huge lag between stuff airing and it making through the system to this side of the pond, some of the stuff aired over a year ago that I am still waiting on.

I made the tough business decision recently to end the 50/50 Lennon & McCartney style Royalty split with my friend Dale at the end of this year.  When we started all this 3.5 yrs ago I honestly thought his music ( which is all mixed / produced by me ) would stand as much chance of gaining some TV spots as mine so it would balance out but every track that has been used so far has been 100% written and produced by myself although he still gets half as that's the deal we shook hands on at the outset. 

As time has gone on it's become very one sided with each placement coming from my solo tracks -  I think it's around 13 Vs Zero now and I don't feel that musically he has adapted or upped his game as much as I have over the last few years and it's eaten up a lot of my time trying to fix tracks or make them sound more up to date of his. I have told him this and he is cool with my own stuff just being mine going forward although we will still work on some 50/50 co writes and I am teaching him to mix his own tunes so he can fly solo.

We have approx 250 cues in various libraries - they reckon about 20% of your tracks end up getting used so we are still a way off that metric. Need to keep on plugging away.

One library offered to pay us $50 per track up front so we've done a bunch of those but they also take half the writers royalty share so we are down to 25% each on those but at least we have a little cash for them. Those along with a few micro-licences ( I've had a couple of cues use by Greenpeace on their Youtube channel ) add up to £235 earned so far each in 2019.  That's up on last year which was £127.

It's a tough gig but I am pushing onward !

Here is a final mix for this song.
Lyrics : PVD
Music: Usalabs
Vocals and mix: Mimmo

       Moments of Desire  (PVD)

(v1)
You want someone who can
Set your soul on fire
During those moments of desire
(v2)
The reason you think you exist
And you become a frequent flyer
During those moments of desire
       (chorus)
Desire comes in many shapes
Some can be hard to escape
Some can lead you astray
Dominating your night and day    (controlling)
It may not be what you need
But it’s what you require
During those moments of desire

Could be gambling is your game
But you keep betting higher
During those moments of desire
       (chorus)
          ending
Maybe you’ve had many lovers
But some were worse than others
But it seems you never tire
Searching for those moments of desire
 Searching for those moments of desire
