    Can we get back to finding out if there is a wiki for teams this year?

    It’s that time of year again: music release time.

    Would I age myself horribly if I said most of it sounds the same to me? Lots of “crowns” and “queens” and “rings” and laser sounds. That’s not to say it’s bad —I know I’ll be singing all of it into my laptop come April — but it all does sound very similar. And it makes me wish even more that they hadn’t taken commercial music from us.

    Speaking of which, I’d be very interested to know how WCSS got to use the snippet from “Oh What a Night.” I know it’s just a half second long and serves as a hat tip to 2015, but I’d have to think it qualifies as a music rights thing?

    Especially when a bunch of teams have the same snippets. So it’s not only similar sounding, but the SAME music mixed different ways.

    On music rights, you can get them for public performance/use-you just have to pay licensing fees. A cover usually costs less than the original. And as soon as admission is charged, that pushes it out of educational use, so even school cheer teams get hit with it if they want to compete.

    There should be an unspoken rule that says you can’t have “queen” or “baddest whatever” or anything that suggests you’re the best in your lyrics if you didn’t win the year previous. You can still say stuff along the lines of “taking back what’s ours” or “you better enjoy it while you can” or whatever, but nothing that suggests you won if you didn’t. It can be a low-key perk of winning Worlds: you get to be the only team that gets to brag and have it be true.
