The World Series concludes with Walk On! :)

just a random experience I wanted to share

as I was reading things on interference...all of a sudden, that attention grabbing ring of Walk On caught my ear, and I went over to the TV as the ending credits concluded the MLB World Series here in the United States...but i just thought that was cool...while reading about U2, boom! I hear them on TV haha...

did anyone else happen to experience this?

After hearing City of Blinding Lights played for too many hockey games, and hearing U2 through so many sporting events, I have to admit payola comes to mind.

Music played during live sports broadcasts like that is payed for the same way that any public venue pays to broadcast music and that is through the ASCAP and BMI fees. They don't get specific permission for those things. It's just like a radio station playing the music. U2 would not necessarily have any idea that those songs are being played.

I understand how it works. It's not exactly rocket science. But when I think of something like City of Blinding Lights as being an arena song, I can't imagine anybody choosing it without payola being involved.

I don't think we can know for sure if payola's involved until we hear Drunk Chicken/America at the Superbowl.

Yes they spliced and butchered it, it was weird but it was worth it to get the whole Bruce song and video. The best part was knowing that the FOX commentators were not talking anymore.

Amen to that!!

I'd given up and gone to bed before then, so I missed it. Would have been cool to hear it, though.

I was to busy blasting Dirty Water, Tessie, Shipping Up to Boston, etc.

But they did play a bit of U2 at fenway. Elevation or City made an appearance at probably 2/3 of the games this summer/fall, and Vertigo was the 2nd song for Gagne to come on to. (they've started playing 2 songs for each relief pitcher. Papelbon is Wild Thing then Shipping Up.)

That's cool! When I was in Dublin recently I have to say I was pleasantly surprised how many U2 songs I heard all over the place--in buses, elevators, stores, restaurants, clubs, pubs! It was great!

That made me happy, coverage closed to Radio Nowhere into Walk On.
