Lucrative royalties for Mariah

Pop stars Michael Jackson and Mariah Carey, as well as thousands of other lesser known musicians, have been urged to come forward to claim millions of pounds in forgotten British royalties. Phonographic Performance Limited (PPL), the body that collects and distributes record royalties from British radio stations, has published the names of 7,000 artists who are owed royalties estimated at about 10 million pounds ($14.15 million).
"The money is really burning a hole in our pockets but we just can't get rid of it," said PPL director Dominic McGonigal. "I am asking all musicians to search the database and contact us if you have an outstanding claim."
Some of the music industry's biggest names feature on the site, from Stevie Wonder to Shirley Bassey, although the site does not say how much money they are owed. The Times said Jackson was owed an estimated 100,000 pounds for his single Say, Say, Say while Carey, recently paid $28 million to walk away from her contract with EMI Group Plc, was owed money for Against All Odds.
A few of Hollywood's biggest stars are also named. Actress Kim Basinger is owed money for Shake Your Head while Mia Farrow can collect for Beauty and the Beast. But while many big stars may be in for a lucrative windfall, most artists are owed more modest sums ranging between 25 and 500 pounds, McGonigal said.
The royalties, which have been accruing interest, stretch back to 1996 when new legislation covering their collection was introduced meaning anyone who played on any track that received airplay was entitled to some of the revenue. The artists who are listed are those for which PPL has no contact information. Their names are published at the Web site www.performersmoney.ppluk.com.

Looking at some recent pictures of Mariah, I realize that her face looks bloated as if she were pregnant. She definitely has gained some weight. I thought she was working towards losing weight. I have the strange feeling that Mariah is going to put the album out and check out. If she is not feeling the support from IDJ, she won't go out of her way ... read more

New album (42,658) by Hanno van Leeuwen from The Netherlands

Yesterday I emailed Mariah's record label here in the Netherlands, Universal Music, with the question if they had some news about the album, today they answered my email. But don't get your hopes up, the only thing that they could tell me was the release date of the album here in the Netherlands and that is May 2, so 2 more weeks to go.

Hurricane Mariah (42,657) by clueey23 from USA

This all just seems like the calm right before the storm. I think MC is gonna come with that ether. A little less than 20 days left until it hits. At least that's how I would like to think about this silent period. Lol.
