Here's one that actually makes some sense -- the Vogues' Turn Around, Look At Me in an
ad touting the Volkswagon Tiguan's rear view camera system.

I can't imagine this hasn't been noted before, but it just dawned on me that I've been seeing the Kraft cheese commercials, featuring Enya's "Only Time" for quite a while!

I've heard it, but I didn't know the song title.  It's one of the only two or three Enya songs I like.
(One of which is, of course, Orinoco Flow, which has also been used for at least one commercial.)

The Fixx's Saved By Zero for Fidelity Investments, because they have zero account fees and
zero minimums.  The song was also used in a Toyota ad back in 2008 because they were
offering zero percent auto financing.
