"There is a kind of crying I hope you have not experienced, and it is not just crying about something terrible that has happened, but a crying for all of the terrible things that have happened, not just to you but to everyone you know and to everyone you don’t know and even the people you don’t want to know, a crying that cannot be diluted by a brave deed or a king word, but only by someone holding you as your shoulders shake and your tears run down your face."
So fun story with this DFTBA release from Rhett & Link.
They sent me the album art and song to submit to iTunes and AmazonMP3 last week. I emailed Link back and warned him that iTunes would probably reject it due to the copyrighted picture of Taylor Swift on the album cover. Link wrote back letting me know the picture was actually of their production assistant playing dress up and even though I had the hi-res image AND I’m a T. Swift fan, I was fooled.
Sure enough, iTunes rejected it the next day due to the cover art. So I had to submit proof the photo was of Rhett & Link’s production assistant and was, in fact, owned by R&L and DFTBA Records, and then had to have them expedite processing on the single to make sure it was live in time for today’s video.
Dana Carvey did not learn the lyrics to “Bohemian Rhapsody” prior to filming the scene where everyone is singing along to it, and was reportedly displeased with the take of that scene used in the film because he was obviously not singing, just moving his mouth in vague relation to the lyrics.
