What’s That Song? Part XXII

This edition of What’s That Song will be all car commercials. These are all ads that have been shown a lot during the NCAA Tournament.

Artist: The Pogues, Song: “If I Should Fall From Grace With God”

It’s St. Patrick’s Day, so this Subaru Forester commercial with The Pogues seems like a good place to start. It’s definitely a fun and jaunty song. But something seems a little odd about using a song that sounds like a drinking anthem in a commercial about driving a kids hockey team around.

Artist: Spandau Ballet, Song: “True”

Spandau Ballet’s “True” has become an ’80s standard and it’s put to good use in this Chevy Malibu Eco ad. The backseat guy who says “that’s Spandau Ballet” is Ben Weber, who is probably best known for being the Geico Caveman, the uncomfortably gassy Gas-X man, and NOT Tom Hanks or Tom Hanks’ brother.

Artist: Neon Trees, Song: “Everybody Talks”

Neon Trees…one of those bands I’ve heard of but never knowingly heard. Alright. It’s a decent song in this Buick Verano commercial. But the lead singer looks like an idiot.

    I want to know the name of the actress who is in the front seat of the Chevy Malibu Eco commercial….the one who turns the radio back on..

  2. Chip says:

    She’s the chick from the state farm discount double check commercials.

  3. Rainey Brookfield Blackmon says:

    Am I missing something ?True is 30 years old, how old were the people in the car when it was released? They would have to be going back to memories of kindergarten snack time.

  4. Carolyn O. Simmons says:

    That chick in the front seat of the Chevy Malibu commercial is totally annoying. Irritates me each time I see her make that face at the driver. Yuck.

  5. Carol says:

    Is she the actress from The Office?

  6. Moi says:

    The actress singing ‘True’, besides being generally annoying, has one of the most annoying singing voices I’ve ever heard! I’m hoping she was trying to sound terrible.
