The Rivers Cuomo/Greg Wells penned track “Pick U Up” has been added as a last minute addition to Adam Lambert’s upcoming album, For Your Entertainment.

Rivers Cuomo is the front man for the popular rock band Weezer. The song and is listed at Walmart as track #9.

This confirms a rumor that had been going around the internets the last couple of days.

In the current issue of Rolling Stone, there’s a story about Cuomo, and “Pick U Up” is mentioned:

Some of those songs were destined for other artists: ‘Pick You Up,’  for example, was recently recorded by Adam Lambert. Cuomo admits, ‘He has the kind of voice I convince myself that I have.’ 

iTunes Bonus Track:“Down the Rabbit Hole” – co-written by Adam Lambert

  • https://twitter.com/pmhowden undercooked

    I tell you what, I liked the cover when it came out, but I like it more and more each time I see it. I know we have exhausted the cover topic (unless of course we are talking about the Scripts :) ) but just thought I would add that in.

    I can not wait to hear this album. I love Weezer. Warning! Warning! Hyperbole coming….but I think if this sounds as good as it should with Adam’s voice and an A-list writing team, I see “album of the year” in Adam’s future.

  • alison8701

    oo I do like Weezer. But they have such a different sound. Their attitude is almost like…. “whatever”… or something. I know what I’m talking about. But songs with “u” really annoy me.

  • rockvixen

    Down the Rabbit Hole I have a feeling is produced by RedOne. Strange he’s nowhere on the list.

  • Teri63

    I hate wishing away the better part of a month, but I can’t wait until November 23. Maybe we’ll get some previews like were given for Kris’ album? Although, excited as I am (and WE ALL ARE!), in some ways I think I might just like hearing everything together for the first time on the 23rd. Whenever anything comes out early in snippets, it seems like there’s too much time to debate each and every nuance of what little we’re hearing, and by the time it comes out, we already have lovers and haters established or people are disappointed that the entire thing didn’t live up to their imaginations. Out of 11 songs (minus TFM and FYE, which we all already know), I think pretty much EVERYONE should find something to like!

  • boredinschool

    Down the Rabbit Hole I have a feeling is produced by RedOne. Strange he’s nowhere on the list.

    It is weird. They seemed to connect. I bet that he’ll show up somewhere though, at least I hope he will. I like his work and he seemed to really want to work with Adam.

  • becausehelives

    what in the world happened to redone’s 6 tracks?. did they have a disagreement. that’s just weird. i was convinced he produced strut.

    I don’t know the weezer guy, he’s obviously a big name, but it’s so sweet of him to say Adam has the type of voice he convinces himself that he has. I ‘m gong to utube them right now.

  • lamslova

    I just listened to FYE. After it was done I said to my husband what did they do with Adam? How come hes not singing his song?! IMO the song was over produced and Adam’s amazing vocals lost along the way. I am looking forward to the cd despite the title song.

  • Teri63

    Warning! Warning! Hyperbole coming’ ¦.but I think if this sounds as good as it should with Adam’s voice and an A-list writing team, I see ‘album of the year’  in Adam’s future.

    I, for one, love thinking positively. I never bought into that “setting yourself up for disappointment” philosophy. Disappointment is never a happy emotion, regardless of the degree to which it’s experienced, so I like to limit its influence on my life by being otherwise upbeat. In the case of someone else’s album or musical career, I can’t control their product or the emotions we’re all ultimately going to feel, so I may as well enjoy the ride while I can! So far, the Adam ride has been extremely fun!

    I think Adam sounds great on this song. We have TFM for his more “raw” vocals, and I’m sure there will be more on his CD, but for a first single, I think this was a good choice. Many people criticized him for “screeching” (which I continue to fail to understand) and being overly dramatic and some also maintained that he would not translate well to “today’s sound.” Well, I think FYE contains restrained vocals and proves everyone who thought we couldn’t be contemporary dead wrong. It probably won’t be my personal fav of his CD, but I love it nonetheless.

    Since I may have gone to another time and dimension come Nov. 23rd I would rather spend the next 3 weeks feeling utter euphoria than surround myself with thoughts of complete devastation and failure. I like FYE, the single, it makes me bop in my chair and I have a lot of admiration for the peeps Adam is working with on his album. So I am going forward with only good thoughts and marvelously high expectations. That first uphill climb on the roller coaster is the most fun because it is all about marvelous anticipation…and I love that feeling!!

  • Sherena

    But songs with ‘u’  really annoy me.

    Saaaame. I don’t know who thinks that’s still cute or cool but it’s really not.

    Also I know next to nothing about Rivers Cuomo or his music but I’m going to be optimistic about this because his name is “Rivers” and that’s awesome.

  • Chicagolaw

    Also, I think Cavallo produced “Soaked.”

    The Redone stuff was done really early, before the tour even started I think. I wonder if Adam had some second thoughts and decided to include more “rockish” tracks instead. I think Rob Cavallo and Howard Benson both came in a little later in the game. There was also a lot of late excitement/buzz about both the Pink song and the Lady Gaga track which may have affected things.

    Teri I agree with you here 100%! I know people who also feel Adam screeches and dont like him for reason you mention above. I fail to see what they do. I adore the man. I think my fingers responded faster than my thought process lol and should have said as you did “it (FYE)probably wont be my personal fav” but I still feel the quality of his amazing voice (like in Muses Starlight and TFM) is missing from that track. Im buying the cd regardless and will enjoy everything on it. I also hope it gets tons of radio play. Just not wild about the track right now maybe it will grow on me.

    Here is what people are not understanding, too. Adam is using his lower register alot in this song. People were not used to hearing this part of his voice unless they were familiar with some of his Citizen Vein stuff. Yes, some of it is overproduced as ALL pop songs are but I really think this is why people just aren’t recognizing his voice.

    After seeing all these different collaborators, i think we are going to be hearing “That’s Adam?” alot, lol. At least now people will realize what an awesome range he really does have.

  • Q3

    Regarding the track list credits for “If I Had You” — ASCAP ACE license credits for “If I Had You” which lists this title written by Kara and Greg Wells. I believe that report that the report that ‘If I Had You’  was written by Savan Kotecha/Max Martin/Shellback is from Hoopla Magnet, picked up on IDF. I think the ASCAP license record is a more reliable source, and I can’t believe that two different sets of writers/producers involved with this album wrote two songs with the same title.

    Regarding the ‘Sure Fire Winners’ . There are two different reports online of writer credits for this song: All Music: David Gamson/Alexander James/Oliver Leiber. AfterElton has it as: David Gamson, Oliver Leiber.
    But I have been unable to find any reliable source to confirm the writers on this track.

    I’m sure it’s out there somewhere.

    Quick question—has Lyndsey Parker ever said anything more about the 4th track she heard but wasn’t aloud to talk about? I am really curious why it had to be kept under wraps.

    ITA!!!!
    Positive thinking FTW! Time after time Adam has delivered, and his “grab life by the balls” attitude is an inspiration. He’s putting out 150% effort into making success happen for him, and it’s incredible how many huge names in the industry are in it with him, which is very heartening.
    If I as Adam’s fan can’t dream big for him, who will?

Pork and Beans has 19 million views in 17 months. YaZa! I would love Adam to sing something as laid back as the Sweater Song…it would just be totally campy and fun and so friggin unexpected!!

  • glamatheart

    Studio57: I totally agree. A lot of people have a preconceived notion of what Adam Lambert sounds like. He’s a screamer (rock wail) or he sings in a really high register (like a girl) etc… As soon as I heard FYE, I heard Adam. I’ve listened to ALL his Idol and pre-Idol stuff (LOL!) Of course it’s been highly produced in parts, but that is Adam singing in his lower register. It’s very recognizable, to me anyway. His range is incredible and I think the album is going to showcase it. I CANNOT wait!

  • alison8701

    The song on ASCAP could be a different song with the same title, and it could just be a coincidence that Kara and Greg are the writers.

    Isn’t Weezer Allison’s favourite band? And Paul McCartney Kris’ Idol?

    Im wondering about that too. I’m still hoping that it’s a duet with someone like Christina Aguilera and that it’s a surprise.

    God Damn, I love Rivers Cuomo and Weezer! Pink, Lady Gaga, Muse and Rivers??? Amazing!! I was looking forward to this album so much already, can it get any better??? Woohoo!!!

    ETA: Oh crap, I forgot about Orianthi the guitarist and Paul McCartney’s guitarist and drummer playing on the record….woohoo again!!

  • Tess

    The mind boggles when you read Adam’s tracklist and then proceed to google the writers and producers. It’s like being led into the who’s who of the influential for the last 3 or 4 years…as far as today’s music is concerned. These guys have produced or written “hits” for a lot of people that have amassed some amazing sales and radio play numbers.

    I can’t even imagine what these last two months have been like for Adam…he must have thought, many a time, that he has died and gone to another galaxie.

    Hopefully someone will take the time to do a little mini spread sheet of who these guys have done stuff for…I think it would be an absolute awesome read (and I do not have the patience to put one together so I am BEGGING HERE).

  • rockvixen

    For the Fever track I googled Jeff Bhasker and apparently he produced a lot of Kanye songs including this…

    2009 “Run This Town (Feat. Rihanna & Kanye West)”

    I’m not a fan of Weezer however I’m sure the song is tailored to Adam’s style.

  • saga

    It is weird. They seemed to connect. I bet that he’ll show up somewhere though, at least I hope he will. I like his work and he seemed to really want to work with Adam.

    I don’t find it weird at all. Firstly, I think he worked with redone too early in the game to know what he wanted and what sound he was going for. For me, redone is an idol producer, he has worked with a lot of people from reality shows and some of his stuff is crap imo. Yes, with Gaga it was different, but I think Gaga knew what she wanted. I think you need to have a strong idea of what you want your sound to be before going in the studio with redone if you want great stuff to happen. I think Gagas success is mostly due to Gaga herself.

    Adam kept his word. He has a lot of different genres on his album. Other than FYE, he could have called “The best of”.

  • SashaB

    That’s an impressive track list. He’s getting some great songs/songwriters to work on his debut album. Well, no one can ever say that Adam was Biced. So if his album does not sell well, it’s not because RCA/19E were not fully in support of him or this album. I do find it rather odd that they are adding song writers this late. Makes one wonder if there was a change in direction, musically. Interesting indeed.

    As I said last night (?) when I saw it was finally confirmed on the Amazon.jp.co site, a Weezer/Adam collaboration….interesting combination.

    No idea how this is going to work, but I want to find out the results of it anyway. Why the hell not? It could totally not work, or not at all, but I’m intrigued either way. Oh and awhile I linked this, but it’s even more relevant now. Weezer doing MGMT and Lady GaGa? 1 degree of Adam separation

    We need a new spreadsheet (Q3? Kirsten? Studio57?) with all of the songs, writers/producers. ASAP.

    Ha! Kirsten is a numbers afficianado. I don’t think she cares about producers and such :)

    The track list & collaboraters for Adam’s album is beginning to prove interesting. We sure have come a long way from when the AI kids had to record their mandatory Diane Warren tune.

    Although, excited as I am (and WE ALL ARE!), in some ways I think I might just like hearing everything together for the first time on the 23rd. Whenever anything comes out early in snippets, it seems like there’s too much time to debate each and every nuance of what little we’re hearing, and by the time it comes out, we already have lovers and haters established or people are disappointed that the entire thing didn’t live up to their imaginations.

    I think this is a double-edged sword. Releasing singles, CD covers, and videos one at a time does fuel debate, but it also creates an entire round of publicity and PR for each snippet. Creatively, however, an album is a concept with the music, lyrics, and cover all put together to create a complete expression of art. It’s the same as viewing a painting in its frame on the wall rather than all those elements separately or when tasting a great dish — you want to get all the flavors in one forkful!

  • dab1234

    suebrody ok, still wish you had an alternate to RS.. Good to see MJ so happy!!! Is it the 23rd yet????

  • suebrody

    Maybe Adam and Weezer can tour together. lol Yeah, probably not so much. But Alisan has her new awesome album together, so, yeah, maybe that, w/ awesome guitarist Orianthi in the band.

    Well, I am thinking (I am serious here) about getting a delicious chocolate chip cookie cake from Paradise in Boston (best.cookie.ever). I will have Adam Lambert/Rolling Stone on the cake. After every 1000 hits (shhhh), I eat a piece. I am not ENCOURAGING mindless posts, mind you, but should these occur in 1000 increments, I will have a tasty piece at each benchmark.

  • Q3

    One correction to the track list — Adam tweeted this:
    I also wrote on four songs on the album. “Strut”, “Aftermath” “Broken Open” and “Down the Rabbit Hole” (iTunes bonus track)
    11:05 AM Oct 28th from Echofon

    I think this means that he did not get co-writing credit on “A Loaded Smile”.

    I don’t know the weezer guy, he’s obviously a big name, but it’s so sweet of him to say Adam has the type of voice he convinces himself that he has. I ‘m gong to utube them right now.

    The first time I (and many others) heard of Weezer was through Windows 95, which included the award-winning music video for their song Buddy Holly. Check it out here:

  • suebrody

    Okay, so we get two bonus tracks from Sony (AO)–downloaded FYE successfully, SCORE!!!

    We get two from iTunes (at least, one def), one is from Claude Kelly, is the bunny one, right?

    If there isn’t a deluxe one from Amazon, I am going to cancel that order, since I only need one CD and one mp3 one. HOWEVER…if Amazon has some downloads that are also on the album, I will get those. :)

    Srsly, guys, if you haven’t downloaded (legally) TfM do that RIGHT now. Adam is beyond hot in it, and his upper register is amazing, even if the lip syncing was poorly done (and it was, thanks a lot, 2012 losers).

  • http://legan0.tripod.com mama2dasha

    I was travelling in the car this morning and listened to much of Ryan S. American Top 40. He mentioned Adam once, in reference to the Lady Gaga track on his album, so that was cool. I also heard him advertise at least 3 times a store called “For Your Entertainment” and he called it FYE also. I thought that was weird-sure hope the name isn’t copyrighted!

  • May

    I don’t think that I’ve ever seen such an impressive list of songwriters on one album. The Weezer add is very very cool . They have a fun/distinct style of songwriting that I really like. I think that the first song I ever heard was Undone-The Sweater song and it’s still one of my favorites, along with “Beverly Hills”. Despite the fact that the lead singer doesn’t have the greatest voice, it works well with his music. It is interesting that they keep adding these ready-made songs.

    Seriously, I bet he sings The Prayer, the beautiful song he did for the Israeli fundraiser. He could also sing Is Anybody Listening, but I highly doubt it. If he goes acoustic, he could also sing MW, Starlight, ToMT–one of the softer songs. But I def think he’ll sing The Prayer And it’s Dec 9th, so he could def sing a song (Muse? Yes, Soaked!) from FYE.

    It is very exciting and encouraging that Adam is getting opportunities like the Spielberg event. Let’s hope those opportunities can translate into new fans and sales. He’s gotten the backing of the industry, now he needs more fans who will buy his music.

    1. It could mean that “A Loaded Smile” was added after 10/28 — there was a very reliable rumor that an additional tracks added to the album late last week. And that also make sense with the 13 track tracklist than the later 14 track tracklist.

    Well…I went to TII (very good movie, made me cry, in fact), and when I saw Black or White, I was like ADAM (silently, of course); when I heard Man in the Mirror, I finally understood what the song was about. The 2012 preview was the last shown ( there were three or four others). However, TfM was just there to supplement the film. You wouldn’t realize it really mattered who was singing, IMO (much of it was instrumental), unless you knew, tho his name, of course, was at the end of the credits.

    Perez is a tool.

    ETA: No. I am not sure we are getting the library edition. :( I mad an assumption, sorry. It would make sense, IMO, but there have only been a few (Muse is the only one I bought). It might just be the normal deluxe edition. Wah.

    Well based on all this I would say it’s not a rumour or Adam’s PR people would have squashed it by now.

  • Q3

    I think the Black Swan = Adam originated with Sunn.

    Can’t find any version right now, but the scans, but yeah, it says in the EW article on the side that the song was co-written by Adam. Adam and Dickensian scarf FTW! No idea why Adam didn’t include it in his Tweet. Again, maybe he just forgot it, or maybe when he Tweeted about co-written songs it wasn’t determined to be on the album yet. Eh, don’t know, don’t really care. Just putting out there that EW is where the info from the 10/23 issue. So there ya go.

    Thanks Truthiness. I know I had it from somewhere but I am still leaving it as a ?.

    I kinda feel like it’s Adam Lambert month around here with his album cover, Details interview and “2012″ video all debuting within the last few weeks — but I have a sneaking suspicion we should get used to his omnipresence. Especially if he keeps dropping killer tracks like “For Your Entertainment.”

    Adam premiered the first official lead single from his like-named debut disc this morning and I feel safe declaring it the best first single an “Idol” alum has released since Kelly Clarkson dubbed herself “Miss Independent!”

    It’s a thumping dance track that utilizes his enviable falsetto just enough. Kris Allen, the ball’s in your court!

  • Q3

    doesn’t anyone find it odd that with all the publicity the RedOne collaboration generated, it doesn’t appear as it there is a RedOne track, unless it is one of the itunes bonus tracks???

    iTunes bonus track is produced by Greg Wells. He tweeted earlier today.

    There possible RedOne track is Strut which has no producer ID and was recorded early.

    The only other track with no producer is “Soaked” but I bet that is Rob Cavallo based on timing, the demo and the factthat Cavallo produced two tracks for the album with a string orchestra.

    Sue I think you must get too many tweets. Claude Kelly didn’t tweet about producing songs for Itunes. Greg Wells tweeted this today:

    Greg_wells: Answer: I did five songs with Adam…3 are on the physical CD, #4 on the iTunes deluxe version, and #5 is on the UK and Japanese CD.

    I guess we’ll find out when everything’s released :)
    Just read that Adam is singing the Nat Anthem. That is good also. I have cousins and relatives who were at Miramar /San Diego during Adam’s visit, as they are stationed there . They love him . My cousin saw Adam comfort that little girl who cried when he was about to leave Miramar , and he said Adam has kind eyes.
    Aww I heard about this from another source too. I heard that he saw the girl crying as he was leaving and decided to go back and comfort her. <33

  • Truthiness

    I’m just pissed that TfM is taking up a slot for another real bonus track. That wasn’t their original plan, the song kind of blows and didn’t really do that well and guaran-damn-teed that it will match nothing else on the album (and good!). I would rather have had one of those RedOne collabs. than it. Even if they weren’t going to be as good as maybe (hopefully) the ones chosen, I bet they fit better than TfM will and at least more Adam. Something he had an actual hand in creating and not just a voice, like TfM.

  • Adamme

    Oh.. btw.. Adam was right.. FYE is a really good song to start your day. It’s infectious beat get you excited to start your day in the morning .. try it. I did it this morning .. and turn up that volume.. LOL

  • isisdagmar

    I’m just pissed that TfM is taking up a slot for another real bonus track.

    Per discussions elsewhere that I read, I doubt it’s taking up another slot–it seems so random to have 13 regular tracks, with one added last-minute, and i bet they did that so that people who had purchased TFM already would still feel like they were getting a bonus track. Pick U Up probably would have been the bonus track in that case. Which, I would have preferred just because TFM feels out of place, but as long as it’s a bonus track, I don’t really care. :)

    I’m happy with how this album is shaping up (and Kris’s and Allison’s–what we’ve heard is promising).

    Thanks, revcat.

    HEE HEE

    I swear, there are like 3 of us on here who like TfM, and I am one of them. But I grew to love it BECAUSE OF THE MOVIE. And I remember when the first snippet came out and everyone was like, Where’s Sue, and I heard it and went, ick. But now it is one of my favorite Adam tracks. SOURING VOCALS *swoon*

    Oh, and that Adison Walmart soundcheck SUCKED. You can tell they were burnt out and did NOT want to be there at all (it was the next-to-last day of the Tour, I think). I went to Walmart online (after I got Chris Richardson’s song for free and heard his soundcheck) and noticed that Adam’s album is $10 with no tracks listed.

  • karenw

    Add me to the list of peeps who have liked TFM right from the start .. but I’m a bit of a sucker for 80′s music.

    Considering there are so many tracks on Adam’s album I don’t begrudge TFM’s being there as I don’t see it as taking the place of another track .. and in a way it may help sales of his album as those who don’t know him and only discover him because of the “2012″ film and like TFM may be encouraged to buy the album now that the tracks on it

    TfM lover, here.

    Not sure it fits with the album, though. It is jarring when on AO they switch from playing FYE to TfM. The mood change makes me do a double-take.

    Reminds me of Cook’s CD, with TOML not belonging with the rest of the set.

  • Truthiness

    As expected, lots of Adam fans like TfM. I think it’s the minority of Adam fans here not to like TfM. At least that has been my experience here. But beyond Adam fans? Eh. Who is to say? I don’t claim either way, but I was just saying I don’t think TfM is a very good song and isn’t very current and I would venture to guess, that it wouldn’t do well in the music buying populace as a whole. As indeed it has not thus far.

    Looks like it may be easier to find out how many people don’t like TFM ‘ ¦lol .. it’s probably 50/50 between like and dislike

    inside the Adam fanbase that posts on this site? Doubtful it would be a 50/50 split. I would be one of three that didn’t like it. But outside of Adam’s base? yeah, I venture to guess I would probably be in the majority.

    I love TFM also – I’m OTT enough to hope it gets nominated for an oscar and he gets to sing it live with orchestra on Oscar night!!!

    I find it strange peeps saying TFM doesn’t fit album?

    1. We don’t know what album sounds like!
    2. Adam said album would have different genres.
    3. I’m one of the ones of the opinion that too many albums today have songs that sound alike – I love David Cook, Daughtry but their albums not so much! And Kris album – the songs all blurred together FOR ME!

    So, for me I’m thrilled to think Adam’s album will reflect different songs, beats, vocals etc!

  • Bluelens

    I like TFM too…and I love FYE as well its a fun song and it was clearly a marketing strategy done to assure Adam a hit on the charts…plus he has already said he doesn’t want to be pigeon-holed as purely a “rock singer” because he loves many different genres of music and frankly he can sing ANY and I do mean ANY as we have all seen :)…
    I would love for him to perform TFM at an event like the Oscars or on Oprah or the Steven Spielberg event even though hes supposed to sing the national anthem they should let him sing something else too…
    they better televise that event! Steven Spielberg is a living legend…
    oh and to whoever suggested he perform at the Superbowl half-time…well I don’t usually post like this but it that were to happen…I would absolutely *FLAIL* and *SQUEE* LOL that is a major event…and it could happen if his single and sub sequentially his album does well on the charts :)

  • Truthiness

    Love both TfM and FYE, but maybe I am bias.

    Adam fans biased about Adam songs? Hmm maybe.

    Of course they are! this rollcall about saying about how much they love TfM, and adding FYE is charming, really, but it’s kind of useless. Not saying that Adam fans don’t genuinely like the song. But the reason why they like Adam is precisely why they will like music with him it in. And that’s groovy, but ultimately useless for becoming a commerically successful music artist. After all, Adam fanbase couldn’t even make him the American Idol now, did it? So he needs to appeal to people more than a fanbase that blogs on a site about AI. That is a very small percentage of Adam’s fanbase as a whole, much less the music buying public.

    Fwiw I also agree with Q3 that we have not heard the last of TfM wrt radio play but it won’t be until after movie opens and album is out

    And I’ll bet you we pretty much have heard the last of that song. No, I won’t eat my Adam magazine covers if I’m wrong, but I’ll still say it’s highly doubtful it will get much airplay, or get much individual sales. After all, it will be a part of the album, and I doubt it will get a boost in individual sales even after the album comes out. We’ll see.

  • oceanarose

    Interesting new assessment from NYMIchael, who writes his impressions about Adam from an industry perspective

    I have been following NYMIchael’s blog since he started the thread on the AI board. He really does know what he’s talking about and answers alot of questions about what goes “behind the scenes”. He has even had some experts from other parts of the industry answer questions. I think it’s worth your time to read some of the older posts on his site. And the posters in the forum there are great too.

    BTW – I love both TFM and FYE.

  • adamland

    No, it didn’t, but it sure brought him damn close, and I theorize that those single/video sales he made while he was on Idol–the ones for which we’ll never actually know the stats–must have been really solid for him to be getting the support he’s getting now from RCA and Sony.

    I agree. I’ve never followed AI until Adam appeared and generally I think talent shows are silly. I’m not from the US but even if I were, I’m not the type to vote (maybe at most 5-10 times for Adam on finale). I’m the type who will certainly support an artist I love by purchasing his music though.

  • cayman

    Lynne, I agree with you, ditto for me. I only watched AI this year because of Adam, he was the fav in my circle, to include hairdressers, fellow co-workers etc. and none of us are the voting type. We are now all totally invested in his success, buying anything and everything Adam. Guess, that is better than a vote?

    Being in the UK I couldn’t vote for Adam but got totally mesmorised by him and have since introduced a lot of my family and friends to him and many of them are interested in him being launched here .. infact I know at least 10 of them who have either pre ordered his album or who are planning to buy it .. I know in the grand scheme of things 10 sales is absolutely nothing but it’s not bad when none of them have heard of him other than me showing them youtube links.

    Yes he does need to appeal to a massive audience in order to be a successful mainstream artist but dont forget the media has been on his side from day one…he had a lot of support and positive reviews from the tour…hes even been on Oprah for Gods sake…not a lot of Idols have been on her show much less *personally invited* *on air* by her to perform LOL so I think thats a pretty big accomplishment not to mention all of the A-list producers and celebrities that jumped at the chance to work with him/support him…the peeps at MTV and Rolling Stone…Perez Hilton (kind of unfortunate bot not really because of the press and attention; Perez writes about him in his blog)…I mean the attention hes been able to get is pretty revolutionary for an AI contestant…
    also, we dont know the exact reason as to why he didnt win after making it so far and getting so much praise from the judges, it seems many factors were involved and its difficult to pin point but we do know that ppl are allowed to vote more than once and text as many times as they want which is not exactly fair and representative of the entire population…also he probably had ppl who liked other contestants (like Danny) who voted against him because their fave contestant was voted off and then decided to vote for Kris and he has fans taht dont necessarily like/watch American Idol and prob didnt actually vote…so again there may have been many factors as we have discussed…
    Im not trying to lecture you (or anyone) but it does seem unfair to me to judge Adams fanbase based on the fact that he didnt win the title of American Idol…I dont think we as his fans should be praised but I dont think we should be underestimated either…a loyal fanbase, though not massive can do a lot more than casual fans who happen to like a song or two…just sayin’ there are a lot of one hit wonders out there that just burst onto the music scene and then just dissappeared…AI gave Adam the chance to put on a performance every week and “grow”…we got to know him more as person through those iphone confessionals, etc…
    so yeah thats my two cents…good night everyone :)

    damn…my last post was a lot longer than I wanted it to be :(…oh well.

  • CindyM

    Nice post adamisthemanfan. Winning AI doesn’t guarantee you a sure fire #1 either, see this year. I never think posting an opinion about a song is a useless endeavor. I think reposting the same opinion over and over crosses into that territory however.

    All the Idol contestants are lucky to have the fan bases they do, hopefully the support in sales will reflect that.

  • Cindij

    How do you make something trend on Twitter?

  • cher

    “After all, Adam fanbase couldn’t even make him the American Idol now, did it?”
    I think he’s doing quite well for not winning. I became addicted to idol because of Adam. Only got in 2 votes in 2 hours after the final. Never had voted before. I sincerely believe his not placing first really mobilized his fan base and garnered him the huge publicity that he continues to enjoy. It’s really not about the win, but what comes after. I continue to enjoy his music and extreme success as well as appreciate all of you who participate in this blog. Thanks MJ for allowing us to be here.

  • Chicagolaw

    Add me to the list of people who love TFM, and I am just fine with it being on the album. And once the movie is released let’s see what happens—I’m not counting the song out yet.

    Of course, I am way into FYE, and I can’t wait until 11/23!

    In terms of the show and voting, I don’t know how to text ( basically, I’m too “old” and my kids are too young, so I haven’t learned), so just calling and getting through maybe 10 times seemed rather fruitless, so I didn’t vote. Maybe this was a common sentiment.

    Neither could Daughtry’s , Jenifer Hudson’s, or David Archuleta’s, and it seems to have worked out for them. I don’t think this is a fair statement. Ultimately it is all about the music and Adam’s fan base is good enough..One thing we do know is they have money and are willing to spend it on him….How many of the idols do you think could raise almost 250K for charity in a months time just coming off the show. Voting is one thing willing to spend money is another and a lot more important. Adam has been in the top 10 on Amazon for over a month that was even before we knew what the hell was on the album or what the cover looked like. Yes I know that Amazon is not the end all when it comes to album sales but I am sure any of the other idols or any new artist would love to trade places with him right now. Yes he did not win but the fan base gave him the thing he wanted most, more time on the show to let us know what he could do, and ultimately get a recording contract.

  • adamisthemanfan

    Winning AI doesn’t guarantee you a sure fire #1 either, see this year. I never think posting an opinion about a song is a useless endeavor. I think reposting the same opinion over and over crosses into that territory however.

    All the Idol contestants are lucky to have the fan bases they do, hopefully the support in sales will reflect that.

    Thank you and I liked your post as well :)

    It’s really not about the win, but what comes after.

    I agree…the time contestants get on Ai is really their 15 minutes of fame…what comes after is what will make or break them…
    kinda harsh isnt it? You sing your butt off for all of America to see for nearly a year amidst soke crazy schedule with no sleep and then are forced to put together an album by the years end while touring and performing almost everyday and thats just the beginning…its just like Adam said once, its kind of like the ‘olympics for singers’ only “winning” doesnt guarantee you the gold medal…and then you’ll forever be labeled as “that guy/girl from American Idol”
    I know a lot of ppl would give anything for an opportunity like this for the exposure and I totally respect that but as a singer myself,
    I pass LOL.
    Guess it really depends on what type of artist you want to be…gaining mainstream success is such a double edged sword.

  • suebrody

    BTW, I watched Chris Richardson’s Walmart Check video and I felt sort of sad. (Then again, it was better than Adison’s–pretty pathetic). He said he was glad he had two years to make his album and could what he wanted b/c he was out of the Idol bubble. The fact is that Chris couldn’t get *signed* after the Tour (he tied for 6th with Phil Stacey, who is now doing well in country/gospel), and he is going to have a very tough go of it (plus I am not sure he is distinctive enough, tho I always liked him). I think Adam is going to be super big (and he has lots of directions to go in if not). I think Kris and Allison will do well, too, but so far the promotion has sucked for Allison and hasn’t been killer for Kris, either, and their singles aren’t flying up the charts.

    Adam is getting to live his dream out; what could better? Well, he could still be a chorus boy in Wicked.

    Perez has a listing of Adam’s tracks on his homepage but MJ’s is more accurate. Who wants to tweet him? ;)

  • Pinasluvsadam

    I think a lot of the people who liked watching Adam on AI weren’t the kind to vote multiple times. Some of them, like me, weren’t really AI followers but just happened to get pulled in because of Adam.

    Maybe a lot of people who loves adam are foreign. So no blogging opportunities. All i know is texting is faster than calling.

  • rblaha1234

    The only reason I watched American Idol season 8 was because of Adam. I went to the tour because of Adam. Not to see anyother contestant. My eyes were for Adam only on tour.
    I am not planning to watch season 9 because there can never be another Adam.

  • Finn

    Is anyone having a hard time getting into Itunes right now? I can’t bring up the store? Nothing comes up. Anyone else?

  • adamisthemanfan

    but so far the promotion has sucked for Allison and hasn’t been killer for Kris, either, and their singles aren’t flying up the charts.

    LOl poor Kris…I havent commented at all on his single out of sheer respect cuz I really think hes an admirable guy and a good musician but that song imho is just a poor choice for a first single its weak, not very catchy, hard to sing along to at least to me…I personally dont like it and again I mean no disrespect..but maybe it will pick up steam before his album drops…he still has a couple of weeks and even after it is released…we shall see how his album sells…that will determine a lot I think…
    as for Allison she has an advantage over kris in that expectations for her cant be as high to begin with because she didnt win (although my expectations are because I really like her)
    AND more importantly, her album doesnt drop until December so she still has more time to do promotion and her single hasnt been officially released for sale yet aside from that brief bizarre stunt (I didnt even have time to get it LOL) and she even recorded it in Spanish so thats another advantage because it could appeal to the Latin audience/radio stations…
    again time will tell…
    honestly I just cant wait for Adam’s single to start playing on the radio…I think it has all the potential to be a hit and I think Allison’s single does as well.

  • luvadamlambert

    hi guys.I’ve been lurking a little today but had to post b4 going to bed.

    track list sounds awesome

    fiannlly finished reading the fye thread.soooooo pissed fye was played on 99.5 when I wasn’t listening .I had it on for 2 days straight to try to hear it,but I guess I missed it !!! D:

    btw,I e -mailed a few of my friends about fye.of those I e-mailed one’s a Kris fan(and to her,u can only b one or the other), one HATES Adam,and one’s neutral.

    only one replied so far;the neutral one says the song is “pretty good”(HUGE compliment) but the album cover is scary

    my mom HATES the album cover.likes the sebree pics(calls them ” tolerable “) .she heard the first few notes of fye on adamofficial and liked it!!!! she’s not an Adam fan at all,even though she said he was gr8 live…

    she made all these homophobic comments on the album cover…whatevs…at least it gets ppl talking…

    ok,gnight!!!!

    can’t wait till tues.!!!! :D

  • luvadamlambert

    oh amd I FLIVE the cover now….

    BWAHAHAHAHA. Okay. ;)

    I like that. I wanna play, too. 8)

  • miss_marisa

    haha luv ALL of my friends think the album cover is weird (but still love his music and think he is hawt) I absolutley love it but i always have loved campy ott stuff

    FYE is my JAM right now and i hope they play it on the radio some because it fits in just enough but also stands out a bit. TFM is good but not really my thing.. his voice his stunning on it tho

  • suebrody

    #4yourentertainment is now trending at #2 but was at #1. Draddee/Sunn has helped, but has now informed me that I must step away from the keyboard

    I tweeted Perez. 8)

    BTW, am compiling my favorite Adam songs, in approximate order, b/c I am rather pitiful:

    MW (studio and stage)
    FG (studio is better but stage is good, too)
    One (studio)
    TFM (ducking)
    ACIGC (studio and stage)
    RoF (stage, studio not as good)
    ToMT (stage)
    FYE (sorry, not up there yet)
    Crying/BTBW (stage, tied)
    NoBo (studio, stop laughing)
    WLL (no, actually Tour much better, NVM, same with SR)
    BoW (studio better than stage)
    Satisfaction (stage, good intro to Adam but really he did OTT)

    PTFM and IICHY do not make the cut, alas, nor does Want.

    Still do NOT like the cover. Want Emo Adam Hair. Oh, well. I will have to take screen shot from TfM and paste it over CD cover. ;)

    Hi Sue ****waves**** if we are talking all time favorite Adam performances pre and including Idol – no contest for me are “Heaven on their minds” and Feeling Good and A Change is Gonna Come (studio).

  • Finn

    ACIGC (studio and stage)

    ACIGC has a studio version??? I didn’t know that. It’s probably not for sale anymore. :( Any info on that?

  • suebrody

    Hi, Bridgey *waving back*

    Well, I did not include:
    Come Home (favorite)
    I Just Love You (2nd favorite)
    Dust in the Wind (fugly outfit, tho)
    Crazy

    Nice calls on FG and ACIGC. I thought you were the RoF type? These are more thoughtful. Which is a great and good thing. :)

    Do you like FYE or/and TfM?

    This from Claude Kelly:

    ClaudeKelly

    The #yankees just did that #4yourentertainment. Hollerrrrrrrr3 minutes ago from UberTwitter

    lol, boo, Claude, Yankees fan. :(

    Oh, yes, all of the songs were available in studio (I believe). ACIGC is very nice in studio, powerful. FG is siiiick, it’s so good. One is much better in studio (sucked performance, IMO). Stupid iTunes removed these when the Tour came (well, okay, 19 removed them).

    From Variety

    The Anti-Defamation League will honor Steven Spielberg at its annual Los Angeles fundraiser on Dec. 9.
    Spielberg will receive the org’s top kudo, dubbed America’s Democratic Legacy Award, at the dinner gala at the Beverly Hilton hotel.
    ADL hailed Spielberg as a “true champion of human rights,” as evidenced by his film and TV work as well as his broad range of philanthropic endeavors. ADL national exec director Abraham Foxman will present the award to Spielberg.
    “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert and Israeli singer Noa Dori are among the performers set for the event.

    I think Adam has a small fanbase, at least smaller than Kris’, and that why he didn’t win. But his fanbase is vocal on internet which helps Adam gain business buzz because right now online advertisement is an important and growing method that merchants are willing to pay for hit generators.

    For some unknown reasons (at least unknown to me) people in music industry generally and generously support Adam and believe in his talent.

    I hope that these supports could give Adam a jump start. But it’s his music that is driving his future career.

  • sdmama

    I can’t resist this roll call. I love TFM. Loved it from the first hearing. I hope it will become a classic that everybody knows, like Don’t Stop Believing. If it doesn’t something is wrong.

    I have a mixed feeling about FYE. I know why it is his debut single. It sounds so much like other pop music today, and compared to the album cover, it feels like they played safe. And it is not exactly something that I fall in love with right away. It is growing on me, like many other Adam things, though.

    I have to admit that the lyrics is something. I had very wholesome love for Adam all this time, until I wondered what he was doing to the girl when he was going to “be rough on you until you scream” and had a reaction that I do not want to discuss any further. Uncomfortable, in a good way…

  • BeckyMD

    but so far the promotion has sucked for Allison and hasn’t been killer for Kris, either, and their singles aren’t flying up the charts.

    I don’t agree that Kris’ promotion isn’t working. Kris has had at least 2-3 radio interviews/concert gigs every week since his single debut. LLWD is getting significant radio spins and adds which shows that radio stations and listeners support this song, and its itune sales has been bstable at #120 which mean people are buying this song.

    Below are lists of confirmed gigs for Kris, Adam and Allison. Jiva machine is working and Kris is having many media exposure to promote his single and album.

    Something is gonna be wrong, then. I like TFM a lot, but I doubt it’ll become a classic. The song just isn’t good enough.

    I have a mixed feeling about FYE. I know why it is his debut single. It sounds so much like other pop music today, and compared to the album cover, it feels like they played safe.

    They did play it safer than his album cover, which is good. It’s his first single. The first single is always chosen for mainstream appeal. I’m really happy about it because just yesterday one of my friends, who is a huge Britney fan, told me she really liked it and that it sounded like a cross between Katy Perry and Britney. Score! This is exactly what Adam needs right now.

    I had very wholesome love for Adam all this time, until I wondered what he was doing to the girl when he was going to ‘be rough on you until you scream’  and had a reaction that I do not want to discuss any further. Uncomfortable, in a good way’ ¦

    To the boy, you mean? ^.^

    I think Adam is lying when he says he isn’t into S&M, just sayin’

  • bridgeymah

    SueBrody Do you like FYE or/and TfM?

    Now I do also love Ring of Fire and so does my hubby and the many friends I have made listen to it.

    For Your Entertainment or Time for Miracles… hmmm a bit like asking me if I like a glass of bubbly or a cocktail with a kick. Depends on my mood but I love them both.

  • Teri63

    I really love TFM because Adam’s vocals are so clear and spectacular, but I have to say that I’m finding myself listening to FYE almost exclusively. Prior to either of these songs, I listened mostly to “Change is Gonna Come” (I actually prefer the live version of that song because of the passion he emoted while singing it–plus, I watch the video, and he’s kinda nice to look at!), but since Friday, when I downloaded FYE, I just keep playing it over and over and loving it more and more. I LOVE his voice in it and the lyrics are just so witty, wicked and fun!

  • Q3

But his fanbase is vocal on internet which helps Adam gain business buzz because right now online advertisement is an important and growing method that merchants are willing to pay for hit generators.

    All indications are the Kris got more votes but may not have had more fans than Adam. Every post Idol vote from Teens Choice Award to Orpah’s audience vote Adam has come out ahead of Kris. And on every retailer chart, in every country in the world, Adam album is significantly ahead of Kris’

    And Adam seems to be interesting to people online and in the terresterial world, too. Try to find a copy of Details Magazine.

    For some unknown reasons (at least unknown to me) people in music industry generally and generously support Adam and believe in his talent

    Probably because he has a rare vocal gift, works hard in the studio to get it right, and because people enjoy working with him. Look at the comments from any of the album collaborators Rob Cavallo, Greg Wells, Lady GaGa, and so on.

    There is no evidence that Adam’s fanbase is smaller than Kris’s. The tour did not show that……the amount of people on this internet that are Adam fans seems much larger than Kris’s. The people that gave Kris the win were not necessary Kris fans. They were fans from eliminated fanbases that put their votes to Kris. Now those fans are back supporting their favourites. That is how I see it.

  • http://www.fatladysings.us TFLS

    You know – I wasn’t sure I liked FYE when I first heard it. But it’s been stuck in my head ever since….and that’s what makes a hit: a tune you just can’t forget. As for the lyrics being a mite, shall we say, suggestive…..you all should check out his early work with ‘Citizen Vein’ ‘“ especially their song ‘Rough Trade’. It’s the first thing I thought of when I heard FYE. I rather doubt Adams work will ever be even remotely ‘tame’.

    I can hardly wait to see the video! :)

  • Truthiness

    Lol, who cares who has the biggest Idol fanbase? None of them are gonna make it unless they get mainstream acceptance and new fans, anyway.

    Exactly. It so beyond useless at this point, because without being able to move beyond AI? any of them will fail.

    Sooo getting back to the music, and selling. There seems to be some confusion about when the iTunes is available. I thought they only added on Tuesdays, but I’ve seen some people online saying they expect it to be avail. Monday. I think someone put drugs in their weed and some radio adds are happening tomorrow, but full ones are happening Tuesday, along with the song becoming available at iTunes. Unless they thought that places who don’t have Tuesday as the add of music day, like Amazon and Walmart.com, might be able to add it Monday. hmmm. That’s very possible.

  • soverymel

    It makes more sense that FYE would hit iTunes Tuesday in sync with Apple’s normal schedule. But so many peeps are convinced that it’s coming out Monday, that it’s hard not to get caught up in the excitement.

    The whole AO purchase thing was a little much to inflict on my non-tech-comfy friends and family who like Adam, but I’m psyched to send the iTunes link once it’s up. Since with the exception of my Dad (who liked the Citizen Vein stuff best, but listens to it all — oh, and absolutely loves TFM) they all prefer the pop side of Adam. And my friends and I LOVE to dance, this is right up their alley.

  • Sherena

    I’ve seen some people online saying they expect it to be avail. Monday. I think someone put drugs in their weed

    lol, so blunt, Truthiness!

    I hope it gets released on ITunes tonight too, but I doubt it. But if it were, would sales count towards next week?

  • suebrody

    Does it matter if it’s Monday or Tuesday, tho (for adds and downloads)? A lot of us already downloaded FYE (from AO), b/c I wanted the deluxe CD, and I got the download so I took it. (BTW: No, for some reason, you cannot play the TfM movie on your iPod, at least I can’t, which makes zilch sense to me.) Adam does the AMA’s on 11/22, a Sunday, and his album drops on 11/23, a Monday, so I am not sure adds date is that big a deal. I would like to see it added to stations yesterday, and the same with downloads of FYE,. but yesterday came and went, so…

    Well, Kris does have a lot of gigs coming up, so good for him, Adam’s will come after the AMAs. I thought he would have Conan, Regis, and Ellen by now, but we know Ellen and Oprah want him, so I guess we are looking after Christmas. Kris’s album drops earlier, so he obviously needs earlier appearances. LLWD is not doing well on iTunes–TfM is actually doing better (this confuses me)–and I expect that FYE will do really well, but that remains to be seen. (I am also of the mind that TfM will be pushed in December, after the movie opens AND Adam’s album drops, but who knows? I hope so. I love the bloody thing.) I like LLWD, but don’t think it was the best choice for first single. I do not like Allison’s AT ALL–it is way too poppy for me (Oh, yeah!). and I do not think it will do well, after it is promoted correctly (hello, Jive, WTF?). And one little Jingle Jam? Really? I know her album drops after Adam’s, but still…that’s it?

    Ah, well. Would love some adds tomorrow, have to be honest, and an iTunes download, tho I am sure that’s on Tuesdays (new music Tuesday, complete with banner and hopefully pre-order of FYE). Should be another exciting week…counting down the days till the real Adam Storm arrives. Ciao for now.

  • http://none tamie2785

    LOVE TFM (any music of Adam,I”ll patronize).

  • Truthiness

    Well, Kris does have a lot of gigs coming up, so good for him, Adam’s will come after the AMAs. I thought he would have Conan, Regis, and Ellen by now, but we know Ellen and Oprah want him, so I guess we are looking after Christmas.

    Well I think Ellen will be right after Thanksgiving, as they’re closed the week of Thanksgiving, so I’m going to say 12/1 for Ellen. I’m sure the Conan, Regis, whatever stuff will come after 11/23 for Adam, the way those things came for Kris after his drop date. The Thanksgiving week thing complicates things, but assuming that they don’t close shop like Ellen does, then Adam will probably start doing appearances the week of 11/23 and the next week(s) as well. I’ve heard a rumor of Letterman the week of 11/23, but not sure about that.

    And in the meantime Adam can start adding those radio interviews that Kris is doing now, to support FYE. He doesn’t need to do a live performance for that, after all.

    But I want Oprah, goddess damnit! I want it confirmed and to be in person and to be glorious. I want Oprah’s minions hearing Adam’s music, gosh darn it! I know that FYE isn’t typical Oprah fare and typically when you do appearances, you do the single to support the album. But it’s Oprah, couldn’t he do another, more Oprah audience cut off his album at that point? Uncoventional, but I think it’d be worth it, because and let me say this, it’s Oprah!

    ACIGC (studio and stage)

    ACIGC has a studio version??? I didn’t know that. It’s probably not for sale anymore. :( Any info on that?

    Second best studio recording on AI = first is Feeling Good.

    The longer versions of both work better.

  • ScorpioBSB

    sdmama: Remember, Adam did not write FYE. While Cavallo says Adam cannot sing a song he doesn’t relate to in some way, my personal take on FYE is that it appealed to Adam on an intellectual level, because it was lyrically more complex, having several different levels of meaning. One of the critics described the song as a sexual metaphor for the relationship between Adam and his fans. Those of us in that “fan” category can definitely relate:

    “Let’s go
    It’s my show
    Baby, do what I say
    Don’t trip
    off the glitz that I’m gonna display
    I told you
    I’ma hold you down until you’re amazed
    Give it to you ’til you’re screaming my name”

    Sound familiar to some of our recent emotions while experiencing the Adam Phenomenon?

    The sexual connotation…..just because Adam chose to sing this song, doesn’t necessarily mean he is into S&M. It only means that he understands today’s music business, and that he has to compete with other music that pushes those buttons. If he plays it totally safe, he may lose. He is a risk taker, however, and chooses to be current and cutting edge. That means pushing people’s buttons, being controversial….the topic of conversation. That would not happen with a totally SAFE song.

    To me, Adam seems to be betting on his other valuable assets, his charm and sincerity, to offset the shock effect of the music. He gets the best of all worlds. Can’t think of any other artist today that has this TOTAL package. Think back to so many of Adam’s performances, where he was like Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde. While singing, a fierce and talented force to be reckoned with and after the song finishes, an adorable, extremely like-able boy next door that you can’t help but love to death.

    A very intelligent and talented guy.

    By the way, to weigh in on the TFM roll call, I LOVE IT!!!!! I also love FYE. It’s hard not to like a song Adam sings. You can’t help but appreciate the vocal genius, no matter what the genre or song.

    I say TII yesterday and heard Adam singing a little bit of TFM in the preview for 2012. It wasn’t much, but it was Adam. This was followed by Adam’s name, prominently dislayed at the end of the trailer. Anyone that didn’t know about Adam probably wouldn’t have even known what hit them, musically speaking, as it happened so fast. Was great for me to hear, though.

  • LeeTravers

    Don’t think we need to be exercised about Adam’s success anymore.

  • Starr

    suebrody:

    Actually LLWD has currently surpassed TFM on iTunes, both on the main chart and the Pop chart. Or should I say LLWD has remained stable while TFM has continued to drop. I think this is mostly because of the lack of promotion for TFM, and of course the number of radio stations that have added TFM are incomparable to those that have added LLWD. I don’t see any way to compare the two songs on the charts. I don’t even feel like Adam and management want to necessarily promote TFM; with the new single from Adam’s album out, perhaps they feel like dedicating more of their time and energy to promoting that, and it definitely seems easier considering the generally positive response to FYE being a commercial hit in comparison to TFM.

    But maybe, as someone mentioned above, promotion for TFM will start after 2012 hits theaters.

  • sdmama

    I hope that TFM will have more airplay after the movie. I heard another song from the sound track for 2012, and that sounded good, too (not by Adam). Maybe they want to sell the whole Sound Track CD, just just one song.
    How hard is it to get a song played on radio? Does the label pay radio stations, or have to convince them that it is worth while, or do listeners have to call in to request it? It is all so mysterious.

    Just to be clear, I did not think FYE had anything to do with SM or remotely bad. Rough housing is playing rough, and sounds plain fun to me. Humore with double meaning is something I see a lot on BBC, and it seems just more European. I find sexual ennuendo quite funny. I admit I am socially liberal.

    I believe this song is absolutely sexual and definitely alludes to S/M
    play. A small part of me gulped, ever so slightly, at first ,then I just had to give my head a shake. I must be honest. While the subject is uncomfortable for some of us, I know that great numbers of Women and men have certainly had “that fantasy”,even if we would never
    embrace it on a “real level”. Others think it’s the small changeof the cost of sophistication.
    So, Adam has told us he will be shocking. Bless him, he is!! I think it is
    gratuitus to speculate what his personal practices are. He does deserve a private life. Fans are sometimes cruel to their “objects” of adoration. sometimes a mass harassment!!!…..Occasionaly
    I think, this is a edgy and “wicked and fun.”( per teri63)It is also smart
    and compeditive with what is already out there “disco stick”, “If you seek Amy” etc.
    I also love TFM( probably more me), but then, I Have very eclectic tastes in music. Adam Has made it very clear that his direction will “not” be Classic rock ,so lucky me I also love some electronic pop like little Boots.
    This… FYE is HOT,HOT,HOT, and a wonderfull danceable journey!!!

  • Pinasluvsadam

    After all, Adam fanbase couldn’t even make him the American Idol now, did it?

    Not important whether he won or not. Whatever happen during the finale will be discussed, disputed for years to come. IMO, winning is not a guarantee for success either. Just look at the other idols who didn’t win but made it. Good news is people who are not AI fans are starting to notice Adam and that IMO is what’s important now.

  • justjude

    Sorry…..unable to scoll down on edit bar…just bounces up!. Lots of
    misspells and poor punctuation!!

  • Pinasluvsadam

    I think Adam is lying when he says he isn’t into S&M, just sayin’

    Exciting times ahead of us! Fasten your seatbelts coz we are in for the ride of our life. Yey! *whip * *wink*

  • lizziegs

    I am so happy and relieved to say that I love FYE!! Can’t stop listening to it. I say relieved because I really LOVED TfM and was worried about “electro pop” as I couldn’t name a single song in that genre before last week.
    I am a happy Adam fan. I even love the infamous cover!

  • Pinasluvsadam

    For some unknown reasons (at least unknown to me) people in music industry generally and generously support Adam and believe in his talent

    Probably because he has a rare vocal gift, works hard in the studio to get it right, and because people enjoy working with him. Look at the comments from any of the album collaborators Rob Cavallo, Greg Wells, Lady GaGa, and so on.

    May i add the following traits: charming, kind, intelligent, articulate, good-looking, good built ( 6’1″ with good patrician features) and fun. IMHO opinion, he also has that x-factor. :-)

    LOVE TFM (any music of Adam,I’ ll patronize).

    Same here. I have my favorites but will patronize all. If only Itunes will roll out fast enough in my region. I guess i have to buy it the old fashion way.

  • Studio57

    FYE is still trending this morning @ #7. WOW.

    And sucks that FYE didn’t come out on Itunes at midnight. I have a roadtrip today and really want to hear it. I may try to DL one more time off AO.

    I didn’t have any problems downloading from AO. I am running IT 9.0.1.8, I did not do recent upgrade (long story). Maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe the new version causes problems?

    Somebody posted Lyndsey’s tweet about Ferras. BTW I love that song (the Ferras one). There is also video out there of him singing it at GMA. In the Yahoo video, something he does with his mouth while he is singing – reminds me of Kris. There you go.

    Live stream of z100 New York….getting ready to play FYE…they have been getting a lot of requests!!

  • Squirrely

    I read that people were having trouble putting either FYE or TfM on their ipods – I was able to put both with no problem on mines. Not sure what the issue could be with FYE, but I’m wondering if people downloaded the ipod version of TfM. They offered several versions and one specifically said (ipod).

  • Studio57

    DUMMY ALERT:

    I just successfully transfered FYE to my Ipod and realized the mistake I made the first time was probably hitting “open” instead of “save” to my computer) I thought I hit “save” the first time). Once you do that, remember what file you have it under. Go to your itunes, hit file, and select add file to library- it should take you to the file you want to transfer. Then make sure you sync your ipod.

    Squirrely- my TFM ipod version won’t play on my ipod either- it’s in my library but won’t sync to my ipod.

  • spring2009

    For some reason I can not click on the “ipod” word. I can watch the HD versions, but “ipod” is not a link (or whatever you call it??) Maybe because I am not in the U.S.?

  • saga

    How are the spins of FYE doing? It goes to for adds tomorrow?

  • abbysee

    But I want Oprah, goddess damnit! I want it confirmed and to be in person and to be glorious. I want Oprah’s minions hearing Adam’s music, gosh darn it! I know that FYE isn’t typical Oprah fare and typically when you do appearances, you do the single to support the album. But it’s Oprah, couldn’t he do another, more Oprah audience cut off his album at that point? Uncoventional, but I think it’d be worth it, because and let me say this, it’s Oprah!

    I watch Oprah every now and then so I guess I am not one of her minions, and I think you underestimate who watches that show. It’s not just Suzy homemaker, stay at home mom.. And they aren’t the prudish pearl clutching grandmas either. One of their shows was about educating teens about masturbation as a way to educate themselves about their bodies before they become sexually active. Believe me Adam could sing FYE on Oprah, she would be in the back lip syncing along and dancing her ass off. They she will rush the stage, and envelop him in her arms if she really, really, likes him. Oprah is more like us than not. She is no prude, and neither is her audience. We’ve made assumptions about middle America since the beginning of this season as far as Adam is concerned, and have been so off the mark in most cases.

    This thread is kind of still live and so much said about Adam’s personal proclivities … I really do not care… unless he does things that will strain his vocal cords and he wont be able to do his signature rock wail … then if that ever happens … i will probably join the mass of fans giving him the third degree.

    I just so love the wailing at TFM and in FYE.

  • JazzRocks

    Add me to the list that loves both TFM & FYE. And I don’t necessarily love every single thing Adam does. Just 98% lol. And I don’t find the transition on AO from one to the other jarring at all. In fact I like it. So many albums today sound so much alike it’s like one loooong song.

  • http://www.planetfierce.proboards.com rowenaaine

    I am thrilled to report that WPLJ played FYE this morning during my commute – around 7:25AM I guess. Afterward, Scott Shannon said “That was the first 2ingle from Adam Lambert from his first album. For Your Entertainment by Adam Lambert. What do you think?” Todd Pettingill responded “That was GOOD,” Joe Nolan said “I LIKE that!” Patty Steele gave a huge swooning sigh.

    Notice no mention of the words American Idol during that exchange. The morning crew does not usually hesitate to ridicule something, in the past adding things like “Yeah, well good luck to them.” Nothing like that was said this morning.

    Then, after 8 AM Patty did her Entertainment gossip recap. For the first time (that I caught, that is), Adam was mentioned in the Celebrity news. Unfortunately, it was about the breakup with Drake…but I thought to myself, wow – you know you’ve made it when PLJ thinks you’re news enough to add to their gossip segment. LOL

    Yay Adam!

    There was a cached myspace page that was a phony.

    Really! I remember looking at his my space page a LONG time ago in the spring, and it certainly did look real. Was there another page that was fake or was it that great one I saw? The one I saw had about a gazillion posts from all sorts of interesting characters–including family and friends we now know.

    The page I saw had the infamous comment from a woman about the interpretive dance drum blow j–”good times.” For some reason, can’t forget that comment. Yipes!

    Anyway, regarding the lyrics and S&M–I’ve heard him say he’s “not that into it.” I always took that to mean that he’s not sadistic in the sense that he doesn’t get off on causing other people pain. I never took that to mean he wasn’t into role playing or having fun with it–just not in a truly harmful way.

    Cheeks (his ex-bf) has made several comments about the dominant submissive aesthetic–mostly to the tune that the submissive is really the one in control. If Adam spent any time exploring S&M, I think Cheeks would probably know!!

    At least better than any of us . . . . LOL

    More music NOW!! Off to request the local radio stations to play FYE.

    LOL! Awesome. Adam actually makes the rounds in these kinds of segments pretty frequently. I know he has on the DC morning shows on numerous occassions (after he made #1 in Amazon presales for instance). Love it.

    Back to the OP, since I never got to respond – I love a lot of Weezer songs, so I am very happy about this new collab.

    Between this, Lady Gaga, and Muse – this album is setting up to be one of the coolest ever. I kid you not :-) Just looking at those eclectic collabs, I know I’m gonna love it!

    I love what we’ve heard of Fever, and the Soaked demo may be my new fav, just because of how beautiful and perfectly “Muse” it is :-) Many of the others are intriguing just based on the titles (like Down the Rabbit Hole and Loaded Smile).

  • Mary102

    Getting your name in Variety ain’t bad. Meeting Steven Spielberg could be quite good as well.

    LOL – movie deal, movie deal (fingers crossed ;-))

    I also love TFM and FYE (and pretty much all Adam music from the show, including PTFM and IICHY).

    To me, Adam seems to be betting on his other valuable assets, his charm and sincerity, to offset the shock effect of the music. He gets the best of all worlds. Can’t think of any other artist today that has this TOTAL package.

    So true – that’s what makes him so fascinating to follow after all this time post-idol – he continues to be so multi-faceted, such a mix of the naughty and the nice, the sweet and the sexy – love it :-)

    As for more promo, yes, definitely hoping for this as well. Kris has a lot lined up, and IMO Adam should have just as much (if not more) – no offense, but Adam will just give amazing interviews! And a live Oprah appearance would be great! Sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas! Please!

  • Mary102

    I want an FYE video now! I can’t imagine how hot that would be. LOL!

    Is it safe to assume that all these radio station home page promos for Adam are payola-driven? I mean, they don’t do that just because they like an artist, do they? (As much as we might wish that were so).

    Well, I don’t think you exactly call this payola. This is more like above-board pay-the-company-that-owns-the-station for an advertorial-like featuring on the Web page. …. Featuring somebody on the Web page doesn’t get you actual radio play.

    Lots of people work out deals to get these little advertorial mentions — including indies like Elliott, for example, for whom the radio companies make the deals partly to fend off criticism that they never give any air play to indies. They still don’t give them airplay, generally, but they are willing to feature them on a web page, in return for something. I don’t actually think the web sites fall under the ban-on-flat-out payola rules, actually.

    In Adam’s case, of course, it’s RCA, so they’ll not only make a deal for a Web page feature but they *will* offer him for concerts and such and, at least partly as a payola-lite tit-for-tat, he’ll actually get *played* on most of these stations. (and, of course, the major press and public interest in him — along with his radio-friendly song and controversial status — will probably boost that play, too … especially if they get legitimate requests and good feedback on the song, once they start playing it. …)

    After the amount of whips he received on tour this summer, he shouldn’t have to shop for this particular accoutrement for his dancers. According to my calculations, he has plenty to share.

    mmb, i had the same problem and tried numerous times, thinking that when i clicked ipod that it would automatically go to the itunes page, but it didn’t then i noted that at the bottom of my computer on the bar that Start is on, there was the itunes icon, click on it there, and it opens the page, it won’t work if you also click on a resolution, so just click ipod, then on the icon that is on your computer bar, not the page at Sony, it should open the itunes 2012 page, then click on Music Video, cause its on the Trailer 2 choice when page opens, after you click on MV the list comes up toward the bottom of page, then you can choose your resolution and buy – it will show up in Library under Movies

    4evrmomof4, oh, you mean a bullwhip. Now, that takes real skill to use, but it does make an impressive cracking sound. Maybe there is a particular one that appeals to you here for Adam’s use: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNKPIOelTgA&feature=fvw

    I was able to download it finally when I made itunes my default for all audio downloads. (I had recently had my computer restored so it was defaulting to Windows Media Player). Once I did that though when I tried to copy the MP3 file it just automatically pulled it into my itunes.

  • sidewalkstory

    Was there another page that was fake or was it that great one I saw?

    The fake cached myspace page had comments. It was about the time that the kissy photos first surfaced. Sooo long ago.

    Anyway, regarding the lyrics and S&M’“I’ve heard him say he’s ‘not that into it.’ 

    I remember that too but am not exactly sure when. I think it was when he was talking about the drag photos during the tour.

    Wonder if Ryan will give a spin again today?

    I haven’t heard it yet. :( I will be disappointed at Ryan if he doesn’t give the song spins cause Adam gave him the privilege to debut the song. Come on Ryan, get on it.

  • Ksha518

    I also love TFM and FYE (and pretty much all Adam music from the show, including PTFM and IICHY).

    me too me too me too!

    ———————————————-

    Me too! TfM gives me chills and FYE makes me feel outta control — in a good way. :) Love the album cover too. Looks like he came from outer space with blue flames in his hair and his eyes seem to be saying GET UP AND DANCE BITCHES! Lol. And the single cover…yum. Love Adam. Wish him the best of everything.

    I am SO excited for his album. One exciting update after another, with the Rivers Cuomo track being the latest.

    I also love the TfM video and am going to try now to download it, so thanks in advance to everyone for all the troubleshooting information. I adore Adam’s TfM look — like a combination of Mad Max and *the One* from the Matrix.

    Very excited also about the AMA performance — but NGL, a little bit *nervous* as well. (Pyro? Whips? LOL) Hope he totally kills it.

  • Chicagolaw

    I can’t believe how quickly radio is picking up Adam’s single. That Chicago play this morning is huge. As a Cook fan, I nearly died of frustration last year with Light On.

    Well, not to put too fine a point on it, but it’s the opposite. Ryan gave Adam the privelege of debuting his song on his nationally syndicated radio show. Ryan won’t play it, again, until it hits Top 40.

  • RowZee824

    wplj played FYE at 12:19 EST. Yeah! Lovin’ it!

  • Sherena

    Just to be clear, I did not think FYE had anything to do with SM or remotely bad.

    Since when was S&M a bad thing? ^.^

    Crossing my fingers, toes, arms and legs for FYE world domination soon.

  • http://twitter.com/glamtwinkle twinkle

    all of your reports made me check my top 40 station in OKC and adam was on the front page twice! they had him in the rotation of hot topics and it was an on demand link to listen to FYE and said “New Music from Adam!” (no last name, no AI mention :)…. just ADAM). and then they had a small poll down the page to vote on his cover. 51% hated it and the other half was split between “love it” (35%) and “just ok” (14%).

    seacrest is coming on now, so i hope he plays it again today!

    Ya, you may be right but I think it goes both ways. Does Ryan turn down offers to debut songs? I doubt it. I don’t know how radio works. But I listen to Ryan all the time, I think he does play songs that are not on the Top 40. Someone correct me if I am wrong. :)

  • lucy

    Does Ryan turn down offers to debut songs? I doubt it.

    It would surprise me a *lot* if every single Idol who has anything like a Top-40-friendly single coming out has not asked him to debut it. However, he’s debuted several but by no means all.

    For example, he debuted Elliott’s Wait for You back in 2007. And that makes me pretty sure that Elliott’s indie label asked him to debut his first 2009 single — Fight for Love — but Ryan didn’t debut that one. …. If I were a label with an Idol singing pop on my roster, I can’t imagine why I wouldn’t ask Ryan to do a debut of the song.

  • LaurelG

    Actually, FYE was played twice on 103.5 KISS fm in Chicago, the second time at the tail end of the DreX show (around 9:50am).

    He introduced it by saying that there had been 2 leaks overnight and since his lawyers hadn’t stopped him from playing either yet, he was going to play them. Called them DreXclusives. He also said he liked/loved one (which he described as the guy’s song), but hated the other (the girl’s song) and the female sidekick agreed.

    Before he played FYE, he said he wasn’t going to tell the audience or the female announcer who the singer was because then they would have “preconceived notions.” After it finished he asked the sidekick who she thought it was and she obviously knew because she guessed “Kris Allen.” :) They both liked it and DreX said Adam sounded like a male GaGa.

    The other debut they both hated? Rihanna, of course. I can’t turn that song off fast enough whenever I hear it, which fortunately hasn’t been too often.

    dietcoke, KIIS FM stations are Top 40 specific. This means your song either hits Billboards Top 40 chart or you are an artist with a strong history of current Top 40 hits. In other words, Britney and Miley will get lots of KIIS spins right from the start. On the other hand, Whitney Houston and Mariah, who used to be Top 40 staples, are back to square one and need Top 40 hits to get them back into the game.

    Also, KIIS is owned by Clear Channel. Even the great Ryan Seacrest can’t play songs that aren’t included on the corporate playlist. So, no, he can’t debut every song he’s asked to debut. Ryan seems like a nice guy, and I’m sure that, if he could, he’d help break every single performer that comes out of Idol. But, that’s not his job at KIIS. He doesn’t own the franchise, he’s just the talent – a popular and lucrative talent, but still just a talent. Adam was added to Clear Channel’s playlist (a good sign, IMO) which means Ryan was not able to debut him, but could also play the song later in the day. What that also means is that, as soon as Adam hits Top 40, his song will go into heavy rotation on KIIS stations. At that point, Ryan will be playing him every Saturday on his Top 40 countdown show.

  • saga

    So… has the spins increased today? How many totals?

    Oh, and how do you get in to the top40? Radioplay or sales or what?

    Ryan did play FYE again this morning.

  • Natasha

    . Ryan won’t play it, again, until it hits Top 40.

    His station has played it a few more times. I heard it with my own two ears but generally I agree with you. KIIS plays what seems like the same 10 songs over and over and over and they’re all Top 40 hits.

  • dietcoke

    Thank you guys for educating and correcting me! :)

    Adamland, did you hear FYE on Seacrest again? That’s great!

  • http://kristentheyellowlab.blogspot.com/ Zsus

    Radioplay or sales or what?

    It’s a combination. But, once a song hits Top 40, it’s spins increase dramatically because it is suddenly getting played on Top 40 format stations. At least, it’s guaranteed a spot on the Top 40 countdown shows.

    But, even a top 40 hit might not get placed in heavy rotation on certain Top 40 stations. Program directors have to decide if the song fits the demographic and the time slot. For them, it’s all about the almighty Arbitron Rating. A friend of mine used to be a personality at our local KIIS station. Before she made the morning drive show, she had the 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. slot. I used to complain to her about the boring crap she played. She said that’s exactly what their market research tells them to play because they were losing points during that time slot to the local River station (easy-listening, pop lite) because people are at work during those hours. Companies quit piping the KIIS station because the lyrics to some of the songs were deemed inappropriate for the workplace. So, it’s during those hours that you get the more wholesome Top 40 fare. We live near an urban area that plays lots of hip-hop and R&B. We have a cottage in a very rural area. Other than the Top 40 countdown, you never hear some of those Top 40 songs played there at all. In other words, even making the Top 40 isn’t a guarantee of lots of airtime on your local station.

    Eh – you know, it’s all so complicated. It’s fun to play at home, but there really is no way for us to know everything that’s being taken into account when it comes to airplay. All I know is that it’s not easy being a program director and deciding which songs to play or not to play. One drop in percentage points on the Arbitron Ratings can cost you your job. That’s why it’s not really about Idol fans being persistant or Idol fans being a pain in the ass or disc jockeys snobbing Idol fans or any of those urban legends. It’s about points and $$$.

  • saga

    Thanks Zsus! I get the feeling from the posts that so far it is looking good for Adam. Nice!

  • Mary102

    Random question – do the single sales from ALL sites (e.g. AO, plus the usual suspects like itunes and amazon) all count toward the official sales charts? I’m gonna buy the single tonight off itunes (in large part because I want to help the itunes rank, which is where most people buy their singles), but I was just wondering if all the people who would have bought the single directly from AO since Friday would also be counted in all the typical sales figures for the week.

  • DLee

    So will be actually be able to buy the song from itunes after midnight tonight?

  • Mary102

    Very excited also about the AMA performance ‘” but NGL, a little bit *nervous* as well. (Pyro? Whips? LOL) Hope he totally kills it.

    Oh, I think I’m nervous in a really really good way for the AMA performance – as in, expecting total AWESOME ADAM-ness on stage :-) He never disappointed on tour, and I’m expecting even more staged epicness for this!

  • Mary102

    So will be actually be able to buy the song from itunes after midnight tonight?

    I believe so. itunes added TFM a little before midnight on Monday a few weeks ago, in prep for the official Tuesday release. I’m expecting the same tonight.

  • saga

    I am nervous for the AMA’s too! I know he always does a good performance but it would be great if it was epic. Also I am a bit worried about what he will do. I like a good, solid performance, with lots of energy, but I am not really into the Gaga bloodbath thing.

  • jms

    Also I am a bit worried about what he will do. I like a good, solid performance, with lots of energy, but I am not really into the Gaga bloodbath thing.

    I liked the gaga thing but that’s because it was appropriate to the song. I don’t think you’ll be seeing any blood from Adam as it doesn’t fit the song. The key to this performance is going to attitude and glitz. I think it’ll resemble his Zodiac Crawl Through Fire performance more than anything else that we’ve seen him do yet.

    No worries here, I know we will be entertained. No live performance he has done has ever disappointed me. He is electric onstage.

  • larc

    Am I correct in thinking there are no covers on Adam’s album unless an unannounced bonus track for one of the chains is? If I’m right, is it unusual for an AI alumni to have only original songs on a first album?

    I know a few of the songs have been around for a while, but haven’t been recorded except as demos.

    Archie did one cover…Cook didn’t do any but had to add Time of my Life…I don’t think Daughtry had any covers.

    Thanks guys in this thread,you all are a revolutionary brigade, quick to post the radio “sightings” of The Adam. So he is launched, and off we go , it is continually going to be an extremely exhilarating ride …

    Next , a slew of TV guestings , I hope soon… before the AMA.
    Wonder if they would release FYE music video before the album drops.

    IA, but I just don’t want Adam or anyone else to spontaneously combust! Or catch fire in any other way! Because, you know….there’s no way to ring the alarm. We’ll just have to hang on until it’s over. Man, I am feeling happy!!!!

    He’s about to get rough with you!!

    On the original thread for the FYE debut, a poster (wish I could remember who) said something like (and I quote, probably imperfectly): “I for one have no objection to Adam tying me down and entertaining me until he is done”. Loved that! ITA

  • sma11ie

    Wow, I really like most of the snippets! I’m not a fan of Adam’s voice most of the time, but this is the exact type of dance/pop that I enjoy. I like the Lady Gaga/Pink vibe of some of the songs.

    So, hilariously, I listened to Sleepwalker without reading the track listing above, and thought instantly that this must be the Ryan Tedder song. Oh, Tedder is such a hack, LOL! But man, good job overall, RCA for picking fun songs!

    he threw us a bone with soaked, broken open, and TFM

    I liked those least. And Soaked is pretty but probably one of my least favorites. I preferred the Muse demo, and I generally don’t like Adam’s voice on ballads. I’m an example of someone who only liked Adam some times on Idol, so if this album appeals to me, I’d say they’re aiming to expand Adam’s audience to non-Idol fans. Yeah, I might end up getting at least a couple of singles on this album.
