I like it! Way better than listening to a jingle :)

It depends on whether the song and the product are compatible. I hate it when I hear classics used for trivial bulls**t.

Simply Shannon said...

I voted.

I really think it depends on if the song and the product are compatible. I have heard songs that have nothing to do with the product and found it to be rather stupid.

Bethany said...

I like it!! Thanks for visiting my blog, and in the pic with Angela Kinsey I am on the right :D

David Amulet said...

Just voted. I like it for the same reason as Rock Chick! if incompatible, so what? It's still good music to listen to.

Ha! You must be using Bloggers new delayed post thingy - how can you have a Sunday, May 11 post when it's only Satuday, May 10th or did you post it on the other side of the International Date Line????

I think I like having old music from my day and age on commercials - at least I can recognize the music and I agree with The Rock Chick - it's way better than bad jingles!

Malcolm, I just saw a commercial that proves my point. Aleve is now being promoted through the use of the Curtis Mayfield song "Move On Up". How are you going to take a song about 60's social change and trivialize it by making it the back drop for a pain medication? To add insult to injury the singing is not even good! What would Mr. Mayfield think about this?

Malcolm said...

The Rock Chick: For the most part, I like jingles. I think that they are becoming a dying art form.

Pjazzy and Shannon: I feel the same way. When I was a kid, Nair used the Royal Teens song "Short Shorts" in its commercials. To me, that made/makes perfect sense.

Bethany: Thanks for voting and for responding to my question about a photo on your blog.

David: As much as I like a song such as "Let's Get It On", I really didn't need to hear it in the commercial for Lunchables from several years back.

Pop Art Diva: I like the new feature that allows us to schedule posts at a future date. However, I use the post options feature for the "Please Take A Moment To Vote..." posts that I do. This allows me to keep that post at the top of the page for as long as I want.

Sure there were some crummy jingles, but I didn't think they were all bad. :-)

Pjazzy: I saw that Aleve commercial the other day and thought "WTF?!"

I said it depends on whether they are compatable. But sometimes (especially with Punk Rock) it feels like the artists have sold out. So it also depends on what the band stands for. :) Interesting Q, I wonder how the poll will turn out.

Happy Monday!! :)

David Amulet said...

As long as you didn't buy Lunchables b/c of it, I'm OK with the practice.

My intial reaction was I don't like popular existign songs used for commercials...but then I remembered there are times when it is so funny and appropriate. Actually I was going to post an example of this on my blog because I love the sumo wrestlers washign a car set to the music used in Charlies Angels. I think it'sa brilliant ad.

FRIGGA said...

P.S. We're playing Rockin' With Frigga, already started and through the end of tomorrow - come by if you have time!! :)

Hmmm. I don't know. I remember reading an interview once where Eddie Vedder was being all high-horsey about Baba O'Riley being used in a commercial but then later he felt like an ass because he found out the profits were going towards - like - a kid's medical bills or something. I dunno. Watching my Whopper with Cheese melt to "Melt With You" makes me kinda smile sometimes.
