Y’know, I have to give it to advertisers. They’re including more and more music in their ads, and I like it.
Now, don’t get me wrong; the inclusion of a catchy drumbeat or a smooth bassline doesn’t blind me to the fact that they’re trying their damndest to get their hand in my wallet. But it does make the act a bit more palatable. And some really great bands get more exposure this way…which is ALWAYS a good thing.
So, this year when you’re handing over your hard earned dough, you can at least take solace in the fact that you got a lil’ extra something out of it. Maybe you got turned on to a new favorite band, or reminded of an old one. There are scads of examples, of course…I just grabbed some that tickled me to share with you. See below for playlist of complete songs.
