    I know I can view my past Royalty Statements on the BMI website, but is there a way to see what cue sheets, or song uses, have been filed before the next payout date? Or is it all an “exciting surprise” when the statement comes out? 🙂

    Unfortunately no.

    Damn.
    I guess that’s why Tunesat exists.
    Thanks Art.

    Tunesat does miss about 20% (according to them) but others think they miss more.

    ASCAP has an option now that you can view your filed cue sheets, if I’m not mistaken. That would be a great function for BMI, perhaps if there is enough interest from composers, they’d consider it.

    @the dude,

    ASCAP has been displaying filed cue sheets since 2010. BMI shows “some” cue sheets, but should show all of them.

    Where is that function? I’ve never seen a cue sheet on BMI’s website.

    The only “cue sheets” I’ve ever seen from BMI are when a cue is registered from a cue sheet. It’s just a work registration with the name of the show, but not a full cue sheet. With ASCAP, do you actually get to see the full cue sheet, with all of the cues used, publisher info, production company, etc…?

    The dude is right. When a cue gets used, the cue gets registered in the Works catalog section of BMI’s site and will look like this:

    BEVERLY HILLS NANNIES CUES – IT S THE NANNY LIFE FOR ME – Cue Sheet

    Then click on it then click on

    View background cues included in this roll-up

    There will be information of writer and publisher on that cue and it will also give the title of the cue. The problem is that BMI does not show the entire cue sheet. ASCAP does a much, much better job in that department. I can see the entire cue sheet, every writer, every publisher, etc. It’s cool being on Cue Sheets with Adele, Sheryl Crowe, and others.

    @the Dude, Yes ASCAP you get to see the cue sheets with all the cues, the publisher, series and episode titles, expected air date and the types of performances. It does not show the production company though, at least not that I have noticed.
