More Annoyed than Amused

Music In Advertising

Posted by parsingtime on March 31, 2008

It is amazing to me what advertising has done for music. Yael Naim is now on the VH1 countdown solely because of the Mac Book Air commercials. I really love the French Horn or Trombone in this song (not sure which)…it isn’t something you hear very often.

The same goes for the Ingrid Michaelson sweater song that was in the Old Navy commercials…and of course Target is introducing The Beatles to a whole new generation.

And while we are talking about music I LOVE the Beck cover of Daniel Johnston’s True Love Will Find You in the End. I’m always surprised by the voice that comes out of his little body.
