'Diamonds and Guns' by The Transplants - Garnier Shampoo ffs.

Actually, as someone who was in bands and a former advertising cunt, most welcome a track being used in an ad because it means a big cheque, which are thin on the ground nowadays.

Cunts.

Mercedes Benz, by Janis Joplin, ruined by Mercedes Benz.

Any ad which uses a familiar old tune and gouges bits out of it to accommodate the time limit.

Was shocked and slightly depressed when Joy Division's Atmosphere turned up on a ( I think) Nat West ad.

Black Star Liner had their music used by Nike. He got £50k for it, which bought him a nice house. Must've been a while ago. I don't think he subscribed to the Bill Hicks view of advertising in music

#4 the automatic removal of any irony is always a given.

I found out about a lot of great tunes from adverts. I’m alive by don fardon. I’d never heard it before

CaptainBlack - 14 Feb 2020 09:55:06 (#12 of 60)

You see, if those musical types would only write their music at 128bpm, you’d find that 16 bars would fit into 30 seconds perfectly.

There is plenty of Ellie Goulding to butcher. You don't have to take a bit of Hendrix and take out the razor blade.

Sweet Home Alabama – Not exactly Kentucky, but still USA.

Also when they change the lyrics to add their own product.

If you need a tune fucking write one. Worked fine for Shake and Vac.

As mentioned on another thread, Ça plane pour moi and now also Tenpole Tudor, swords of a thousand men.

Didn't Moby license out every track on Play soon after releasing it?

HouseOfLametta - 14 Feb 2020 10:03:19 (#18 of 60)

Yeah, well.

Peacock - 14 Feb 2020 10:03:38 (#19 of 60)

Yep

FrankieTeardrop - 14 Feb 2020 10:33:21 (#20 of 60)

I hope the people who actually wrote and performed the music he sampled got a good slice of the pie
