Maybe we can just skip to the good part where we all laugh at Alanis Morrissette.


She's more talented than you are.


I'm not a pop singer, and she isn't an accountant, but my career seems to be doing just fine these days. Hers? Not so much.


She makes more money than you too.


Maybe. Depends on whether she got a good deal with the record company on her early work. She hasn't done any recent albums that have been popular. Also, the music industry keeps hitting new lows each year, because increasing numbers of people have decided to stop paying for music and now just download it for free. I would actually be a little surprised if she made more money than me this year. Then again, I'm having a pretty good year, income-wise.


Dude, five words: Accounting Department outsourced to India.

Is this F:AT's first ziggurat?

And what would the first ziggurat be without Alanis and Outsourcing?

Here's a link to an interesting article written by an attorney who specializes in record contracts:

business.songstuff.com/articles.php?selected=78

It's an eye-opening look at how record labels gouge away at royalties with a variety of accounting and legal gimmicks. Even touring revenue doesn't all go to the musician.


Good article. I remember a speech by Courtney Love a couple of years ago running along the same lines. If you're in it for the money, being a recording artist is the wrong place to be.

Steve Albini was pointing this out a few years back that he was producing records for bands and that despite them making millions of dollars for their record companies they saw less money than if they had worked in a 7-11.
