? Q.Who decides on what gets released as a single?

A."'We're going to release X. OK ?' Actually, it's not quite that draconian but the company listens to the single and decides, on the basis of it's expertise, which song they can most likely help to be a hit. As long as the band and management don't disagree enough to obstruct it, that's the song that gets released."(Mike)
