Mad Hot Nonsense

Carrie McLaren has a great piece the difficulty of clearing rights for Mad Hot Ballroom. An excerpt: “When Agrelo and Sewell were filming boys playing foosball after school, Ronnie (right) at one point shouted, “Everybody dance now!”, a line from a C+C Music Factory hit. Incredibly, the filmmakers’ lawyer said the line had to be cleared with the song’s publisher, Warner Chappell. The price? $5,000.”
