    Updated: Tue, Apr 22, 2014

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Indie rock band Portugal. The Man and the Smithsonian's National Zoo released an "endangered song" Tuesday for Earth Day to demonstrate the dwindling number of about 400 Sumatran tigers left in the world.

So the only way to save the song is to digitize and "breed" it by sharing the music through social media, organizers said. The song was released to 400 participants to share, including celebrities, politicians, policy makers and conservationists. It's being circulated by the zoo, the band and advertising agency DDB New York.

  • How 'Sail' sold: Story of Awolnation's Aaron Bruno

    Updated: Tue, Apr 22, 2014

    NEW YORK (AP) — He has the second longest-running song in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. You've likely heard the song — but not the name of the man who created it. Aaron Bruno is the musician behind "Sail," the sleeper hit from his band Awolnation. "Sail" became a success after it debuted in 2011 and spent 79 weeks on the Hot 100 chart, ending its run last month. Though not as ubiquitous as Pharrell's "Happy," it has made its impact on every platform, including TV, film, commercials and pop radio. It is one of those melodies that burrow in your head — even if you don't know the title. And it has sold more than 5 million tracks in the United States.

A kind of blood sport took hold where — even though the summer's box office ended up setting a record high — some took glee in the downturns of Hollywood's roller coaster ride. "'Blood sport' is the perfect word for what I saw last year," says Michael Bay.
