The media machine is in full spin mode. If it is on the radio then people have to enjoy it.

It wasn't on the local station I had on at all today!  There were all of their other standards that they play, but not GOYB.  Strange.

Hello-- HELLO---  (((( HELLO)))))  Hey! What's going on?  I can honestly say that since Monday I have not heard the song on the radio once.  Not a single time!  This is the strangest marketing strategy I have ever seen.
One of the stations in the area is streaming it on their website, but that doesn't work for me since we are not allowed to be on the internet at work.  What's up with Clearchannel?

I finally heard it today on Sirius for the first time.  Programmed it in the memory of the receiver, so I can see how much more it is played.  I don't want it to be overplayed  :-\

Well- I don't call hearing it 4 times on radio on Monday and zero the rest of the week overplay. I call that close to zero exposure.

Nah. It probably won't be played much until the album comes out. Never is.

This is very true.  Happens to every artist.  Late next month it'll start to get more play.  Also when the video comes out the end of this month that will help.

I'm waiting for a new iPod ad.  Like it or not, _that_ was exposure.

I haven't heard Boots on the radio, or seen anything about it on TV.

I posted this somewhere else, but I heard it yesterday on the radio, it was a top 5 at 5 count down, it was #5.  But that is the only time I heard it. (on the radio)

I actually haven't heard it much at all on the stations in NYC so far anyway. But I'm sure that will change!

I haven't heard it yet today, but I did hear it 3 times yesterday.  I live in the Boston area as well.  I heard it twice on 101.7 WFNX and once on 92.9 The River.  I am a bit surprised though.  When Vertigo and Elevation came out both of those songs were on a lot more stations.

Give it time.  It takes a while for songs to pick up steam.  "Boots" will be a hit, I'm sure.  Look for more exposure next month with the video and possibly an iTunes ad.  Haven't heard any rumors about an ad, but who knows, there might be one.  The U2 machine is just starting up and I'm sure they have some surprises in store next month in the way of exposure for themselves, "Boots", and the new album. 8)
