Samsung's new phone, "The Fascinate", is being flogged by --what else? -- "(Keep Feeling) Fascination". Talk about yer no-brainer.

I'm surprised they didn't go with Bowie's "Fascination" off Young Americans. I'd think it would appeal to almost the same demographic as (KF)F.

a Top Ten hit trumps a deep LP track every time, I guess.

Cake's "Short Skirt Long Jacket" is touring the facility, er, flogging the new iPod Nano.

No music involved but a commercial for Old English just invited me to "bring out the natural beauty of your wood". A bit of French polishing, indeed!

Speaking of advertising and music, I heard an ad on KFOG for the Iggles show proclaiming them "America's Greatest Band!"

OK, so Life As We Know It is a "heartwarming" rom-com about a couple who are thrown together when their married mutual friends are killed and the couple are named guardians of the dead folks' kids (yeesh, who writes this stuff?). But... WTF does "Solsbury Hill" have to do with it?

apparently Mr Simon's publishers are working overtime: "Slip Slidin' Away" is selling (wait for it) snow tires.

Meanwhile, will Microsoft get Greg Kihn to promote Kinect for X-Box 360?

Car ads seem to be casting a wide net for music beds. Saw a Subaru commercial tonight that used the Pogues' If I Should Fall From Grace With God.
Let's get right to it.

Yeah, why spend thousands of dollars to license a track when you can get one from Shane McGowan for a beer and a clean needle?

The ad features a pee-wee hockey team, and nothing says "hockey" like a singer with no teeth.

A song called "Love" by Matt White is flogging the McRib. It was NTM, but the line that caught my ear was "like a summer's day in May", which gets the Neil Diamond don't-you-know-when-Summer-is? award.
