It was the “yeah, yeah, yeah” part. Maybe I’m overdosing on The Beatles.

Ringo and his daughter Lee in an Oldsmobile commercial. A Hard Day’s Night plays in the background.

 The old adverts are great for just how ill-informed and stupid they now look.

Here’s a rather poor cover of All Together Now in a commercial celebrating what turned out to be the start of a nearly genocidal relationship between the Europeans and the Native Americans. In an attempt to not sound too horribly cynical, I am thankful this year for both my love and my life 🙂

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

There’s a new Walmart Commercial that uses the line “Come together right now over me”. http://www.tvcommercialspots.c…..nksgiving/

When did the band’s music start getting sold to advertisers? Seems I didn’t notice it until the controversial Nike ad that used “Revolution ” after Michael Jackson acquired the catalog. But I think no, it might have happened earlier too, I’m just not bringing any examples to mind from before that.

It doesn’t bother me any more like it used to, because I’ve resigned myself to it. Even Led Zeppelin’s music was used to sell Cadillacs, so I guess it’s one way of keeping the music at the forefront of the nation’s consciousness.

With the Stooges’ “Search and Destroy” now serving as the soundtrack for an Audi commercial, all bets are off.

You could argue that The Beatles TV show was just a 30 minute commercial to promote The Beatles music to kids.

An advert for Samsung Galaxy 8 (a Galaxy to me is a chocolate bar) has a crap cover of ‘Across The Universe ‘. Not even worth bothering going searching for.

It’s Rufus Wainwright’s version from 2002:

I rather like it. I do think they’ve remixed it for the ad though, putting more echo on his vocal – which I’m not so keen on.

 A galaxy to me is a gravitationally bound system of stars, stellar remnants, interstellar gas, dust, and dark matter.

Too slurry, slow and boring.
