Honestly, I had planned to post a bit of opera tonight (just because John likes to offer diverse types of music), but as I was working on another post, I heard a familiar refrain during a commercial for a business credit card. It stopped me in my tracks because the ad wizards in charge had chosen a SPINAL TAP song. A spoof song from a "mockumentary" is supposed to sell business owners on this card?
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Spinal Tap. (So much so that I know that this is technically the Thamesman, not ST, and yes, I am a dork) It's definitely in my top ten all time favorite movies--and one of the best DVDs ever. Certain phrases from it trip so often from my lips that my four year old says "This one goes to eleven!", knowing that it will make me laugh. But it seemed odd to hear as a completely legit advertisement.
But it gave me an idea for a challenge. Your challenge tonight--if you choose to accept it--is to post songs you love that have been used in advertising campaigns.
