What’s That Song? Part XVIII

Artist: Grouplove, Song: “Tongue Tied”

With cool/douchey (depending on your perspective) teenagers hopping around to a hipsterific song, Apple’s new iPod Touch ad hearkens back to the early days of iPod advertising. I find this song to be pretty obnoxious. Plus, the commercial is incredibly loud. I dozed off during Monday Night Football last night, and this jarred me awake. And I’m now realizing how old that makes me sound.

Artist: Brighton MA, Song: “Good Kind Of Crazy”

This holiday commercial from Jack Daniel’s is calm, relaxing, and looks great. This song by Brighton MA is calm, relaxing, and sounds great. The holiday barrel tree is a genius idea.

Artist: L.P., Song: “Into The Wild”

Pretty from Citi. And L.P.’s got a nice voice on her.

What’s That Song? Part XVII

Artist: Camera Can’t Lie, Song: “Shine For Me”

A great holiday commercial from Lowe’s. Striking and very pretty visuals. A pleasant song. And “Never Stop Improving” is a quality slogan for both business and life.

Artist: Johnny Otis, Song: “Willie and the Hand Jive”

Simple and stylish ad for Delta Faucet. The hand touch thing is pretty cool. Tune is catchy as hell too.

Artist: Daniel Lee Kendall, Song: “Lost in the Moment”

A cute song that sounds like something women would love. Which probably explain why it’s in a Zales commercial. Reminds me of another holiday jewelry ad from a few years ago.

Artist: ???, Song: ???

I keep seeing searches being referred to my blog for “Gillette Fusion Proglide song”. I assume this is the commercial they’re looking for. Unfortunately, I can’t find the artist or song anywhere. Sorry. The Gillette Fusion Proglide is the best razor I’ve ever had, but I don’t think it’s “turned my world upside down”

What’s That Song? Part XVI

Artist: Frank Sinatra, Song: “Sleep Warm”

The NBA is still in a lockout, but basketball never sleeps for people like LeBron James. Regardless of my personal feelings for LeBron (I’m from Ohio), this is a cool ad for Nike. I approve of any commercial featuring Frank Sinatra. And this similar spot is also very nice.

Artist: Givers, Song: “Words”

A fairly pretentious commercial for Amazon’s Kindle Fire. But the song sounds great.

What’s That Song? Part XV

Artist: Girls Love Shoes, Song: “Home”

Previously featured in a great Buick commercial, Girls Love Shoes return in this Lowe’s ad. The spot is visually interesting,  and the song is decent. Though I like “Stars” much more.

Artist: Peter Bjorn and John, Song: “Second Chance”

This commercial for Bud Light Lime has been around since April, but I’ve been seeing it often lately. Expect it to be getting more airplay as winter approaches. Pretty good ad by DDB Chicago, with the beachiness, pretty women, and nice song. Bud Light Lime is obviously going after Corona drinkers.

What’s That Song? Part XIV

Artist: Ivy, Song: “Edge of the Ocean”

Beautiful visuals and song. Nicely done, American Airlines.

Artist: Joy Zipper, Song: “1”

Cigna is an insurance company right? OK yeah, it is. Like the song…very ’60s vibe. And “Go You” is an effective slogan.

What’s That Song? Part XIII

Artist: David Bowie, Song: “Changes”

There are some songs that everyone should know. This is one of them. There’s an embarrassing number of classic rock songs that I haven’t heard, but I know “Changes”. Sweet tune. This BMW commercial actually premiered during the Super Bowl, but it’s been getting a lot of play recently.

Artist: Pitbull, Song: “Vida 23”

Pitbull is a popular artist who is in this Dr. Pepper spot. He’s also a good example of why I don’t listen to pop radio anymore.

What’s That Song? Part XII

Artist: Girls Love Shoes, Song: “Stars”

This is the 2nd time I’ve profiled a song from a Buick LaCrosse commercial. It’s not new either…been on YouTube since early March. But I saw it today and just had to know the cool song in this cool ad. Girls Love Shoes is a really goofy band name. “Stars” is catchy as hell. And I’ve been listening to it on repeat.

Artist: Gin Wigmore, Song: “Don’t Stop”

The 2nd “Don’t Stop” being currently used in advertising. I thought this was Amy Winehouse at first. Anyway, a nice spot by Lowe’s showcasing life’s changes.
