The royalty system is magic.
Every time a piece of music that you 'own' is played anywhere in the world, "Ka-CHING"!
I read somewhere that Gene Maclellan's estate still gets six figures every year for 'Snowbird".
What's this got to do with cars?
Just that I wonder every time I hear the warning chime in a BMW whether Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman get royalties.
Is that not the first chord of their hit song "Laughing"?
"BRRR-ING - ding ding ding, BRRR-ING - ding ding ding - I should laugh, but I cry, because your love, has passed me by..."
Oh, and if their agents never figured this out before, don't forget MY cut.
