Why did Turning Into You get virtually no airplay?
Note: Please show that you have some understanding of what makes a single marketable. This isn't simply a question of how good or bad you personally think Turning Into You is.
I thought Turning Into You was going to be a hit at least on the alternative rock charts, which would have kept DGB somewhat relevant to at least one sizable group of people (alt. rock fans). But it didn't even do anything there (I think it peaked around #30). That's a disappointment even for the modest expectations that a band in The Offspring's position should have. In the past, the first two Offspring singles were a given to crack the top 10 simply for being the first two Offspring singles. Hammerhead is probably these best evidence of this (it wasn't a very radio friendly song in length or style). I mean, I wouldn't have even guessed there are 30 bands out there today that could chart higher than The Offspring on alt. rock radio.
Ok, all I did here was attempt to illustrate how much of a flop Turning Into You was. I'd like to give an explanation, but I really have none. Maybe The Offspring are just seen as too old to attempt a modern rock sounding song like Turning Into You?
My top singles order according sales and promotion.
Ups! again. In this time The Offspring failed in sales. They donīt appears on charts anymore.
My singles in order for DGB album:
1. Days Go By. The title of the album.
2. The Future Is Now / Secrets From The Underground. Both singles. Both Video clips. One after the other. These songs represents the problems of the world inclusive in Argentina social issues.
3. All I Have Left Is You. Third Single. Dexter appears on video playing the piano. Nice history about love.
4. Turning Into You. Fourth Single. A good video clip.
5. Dividing By Zero / Slim Pickens Does The Right Thing And Rides The Bomb To Hell. Fifth and both single. Both Video clip. One after the other. Only Airplay promotional.
This promo singles will ending at the end of December 2013.
And then 2014. Start to record the new album.
But Columbia Records want pop music in singles.
My idea the band will never sold out in Columbia. They were stay in Epithaph or Nitro.
