The Rosenbergs. One of the best pop bands you've never heard. Or maybe you have. Nevermind.

Biography

Search the Internet for info on The Rosenbergs and you’ll come across hundreds of articles summarizing a history of bold career moves. One of which was teaming up with legendary progressive rock master, Robert Fripp. Through Fripp’s UK based label, DGM, The Rosenbergs began paving the way for artists to begin partnering with labels, thus giving them a share in the ownership of their masters and better control of their financial futures.

A few months later, while the rest of the music industry was waging war against Napster, The Rosenbergs took another controversial step by teaming with the infamous file-sharing service for tour sponsorship and a "buy one, get one free" promotion for their sophomore release Mission: You.

The band's music can be heard on a host of television shows on FOX, CBS, NBC, WB, BRAVO, MTV, and ESPN.

Odds are you've heard their songs while flying American Airlines, Shopping at The Gap, or watching a number of network television shows.

The Rosenbergs have 3 tracks off their new release, "Department Store Girl", on Playboy's first video game, "Playboy; The Mansion", for XBOX, Playstation, PC. David is also a character in the game itself and the band recently performed at the Mansion to kick off the game's release.

Pushing Up Daisies will be featured in National Lampoon's The Trouble With Frank; starring Jon Bon Jovi, Cary Elwes, David Faustino, and Estella Warren.

Holding Pattern, Pushing Up Daisies, and Birds Of A Feather will appear in Mr. Fix It; a romantic comedy starring Paul Sorvino and David Boreanaz which premieres Jan. 16.

Singer, David Fagin, has made numerous co-hosting appearances on XM radio and has appeared everywhere from Howard Stern (w/ Gene Simmons) to Janeane Garofalo to NBC's Celebrity Justice. David co-produced numerous panels for Dennis Miller Live.
The band recently appeared for five consecutive nights on Last Call W/ Carson Daly, and
have shared the stage with everyone from No Doubt and Stone Temple Pilots to Duncan Sheik, The Strokes, and Duran Duran.

David is a frequent contributor to Billboard Magazine, USA Today, The Hollywood Reporter, and Starpolish.com.

He has been active in the politics of the music business since 1998 and, alongside Alanis Morissette, represented the webcasters at the C.A.R.P. hearings on Capitol Hill.

He has lectured on the business of music at Harvard Law, Vanderbilt, Emory Law, UCLA, NYU, and has spoken on countless industry panels across the country.

David is featured in two new books, The Future of Digital Music (alongside Alan Parsons, Bob Ezrin, Don Was, etc.), and "Stars of David" (quotes from Jewish rockers). He recently was a guest speaker for a class of music and media majors at Belmont University in Nashville, TN.

Lyrics

Holding Pattern

Written By: d.fagin

It's a beautiful night. take all the stars in the galaxy. we can make it alright. funnel the sun into energy

somebody stop the world
my love's a ship and the ship just sank
somebody stop the world
my baby's caught in a holding pattern

i been reading your mind
i can be wrong if u want me to
the invisible line never is crossed

somebody stop the world
my love's a ship and the ship just sank
somebody stop the world
my baby's caught in a holding pattern

she's got it she's got it
more than anyone
she's done it she's done it
she's turned her face to the sun

it's a beautiful night
take all the stars in your galaxy
we can make it alright
funnel the sun....
