Things I Enjoy About the Olympics:
- That the gymnasts wear scrunchies...?
- Watching water polo!
- The commercials
And there are a lot of commercials to choose from... I've been surprised by how many of my favorite musicians have sold their music to commercials and TV promos [Ed: Notice I did not say "sold out"... I like to differentiate myself from hipsters who hate commercialism yet ironically embrace it].
Look at all the songs I've heard just this week!
"Sincerely Jane" by Janelle Monae, used in the Season 2 promo for "Lipstick Jungle" on NBC
"Crane Wife 3" by The Decemberists, used in a VISA commercial?? (clearly not a memorable commercial)
"Scar That Never Heals" by Jeremy Fisher, used in a VW Autobahn commercial
Hem featured in another Liberty Mutual ad
"The Story" by Brandi Carlile, used in a GM commercial
"Lazy Eye," Silversun Pickups, used in Chevy Malibu commercial
What other songs have you heard?
