Songs forwarded by Taxi to a Music Library

I submitted three of my songs, Rescue Me, You Are My Storm, and When I'm With You, to the following listing:

An LA-based Music Library wants great SONGS IN ALL STYLES [no instrumentals] with positive and universal lyrical themes for film/TV/ad placement. Up-tempos preferred, but all tempos OK. Songs with big anthemic chorus are most welcome. She can't use songs that include specific names [Bob, Jennifer, etc.] or historical events in the lyrics, but those with places [cities, countries, etc.] are OK. The company has been in biz for about a year and already has had placements on ABC, NBC, and HBO as well as films distributed by Disney, Warner Bros., and Trimark. You must own all of your song's licensing/pub. rights and have release forms for any & all performers on your recording [if you hired studio musicians, for example]. They offer a non-exclusive deal. The company's owner will screen your submissions.

and both Rescue Me and You Are My Storm were forwarded to the publisher! As always, I have a cautious optimism, as none of my previous submissions that were forwarded have panned out into any deals. However, that does not stop me from thinking about one of my songs at the close of The Sopranos, or in a new film. Here's hoping.

By the way, You Are My Storm is a new one coming up on my new solo album, and you can check it out at my Broadjam site...
