Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Ian Marquis for “Close Your Eyes”:
is this one of the ones you sent to the radio? I think you should. It's got a good beat and story, plus it's got simple lyrics for the average listener. -sho

I first did this track back in 2010, and I reworked it and made it even more excellent for the EP. I haven't sent it to the radio yet, but I think it's...marketable?

Look, in terms of marketability it's like any other asset, it's what someone else is willing to pay. For music, most people are not used to having to pay, so it's hard to make sales. Again, for me it's another example of 'the market' saying that they expect it to be free.

I imagine that something similar will happen in software eventually, since the expectation from the consumer point of view is not to pay, and since many programmers do their best work for free.

But ultimately, it's the value that your work brings to others. That is where we as artists get our biggest payoff, in my opinion.

TLDR: Gets you laid > Gets you paid :)
