What’s That Song? Part XI

Artist: The xx?, Song: “VCR”?

A friend brought this to my attention, as it was written about on Stereogum. It’s a Nokia commercial from India, and the clear implication of the article is that Nokia took the song without permission. They do sound the same. Though I wouldn’t be surprised if Nokia uses an Vanilla Ice-type defense to avoid any potential trouble.

Artist: The Kinks, Song: “Got to Be Free”

What a trippy commercial for the Toyota Prius. I didn’t really notice the song at first since the commercial was so bizarre.  But now that I listen, it’s cool, I guess.
