Off the Charts: The Song-Poem Story

2003 Rated NR 2hr 12m

Through interviews with would-be lyricists and composers, this fascinating documentary examines the eccentrics who, in response to ads in the backs of magazines, send their heartfelt poems (and a large fee) to be made into hit songs -- hopefully. What few of these fearless aspiring artists realize, however, is that of the estimated 200,000 songs that have been concocted by this mail-order method, not one has ever been a hit.
