My band's working out Party In The USA (Miley Cyrus) for a chick sit-in next week. Say what you want about Miley, autotune, etc, it's an extremely well-crafted tune with great hooks, arrangement, production, fun lyrics that 4 to 40 year-olds can enjoy, etc. That got me wondering how the whole Disney song ghostwriter thing works. Is there an office somewhere where some industry folks sit around a conference table writing songs? Who are these people? Where do they come from? How do they get into that scene? Are they provided with flow charts of certain formulas they're supposed to follow? Is it just a bunch of freelancers that submit thousands of song bids which are reviewed and picked by some executive board? Do the songs have to go through upper management reviews before being given to the band/singer to record? Just curious...
