Agreed. I thought you were stating that the format in which the song was ORIGINALLY used would affect its value when used elsewhere. (In a sense, this is true: the intrinsic value of the original song will certainly affect the fee you'll pay to license it. For example: Springsteen's "Born to Run" will likely set you back more than "Tiptoe Through the Tulips"... IF Springsteen's publisher will even consider licensing the song!) But I see from this post that you mean the intended end use of the song can affect the fee. Absolutely. Along with all kinds of other variables. See my last post.
