Ugh... commercial music butchery
Thanks to TiVo I generally don't see any TV ads (huzzah for 30-second skip), but I was slow on the draw and just caught a Kohl's commercial, and the music froze me in horror/revulsion. It was Big Country's "In A Big Country" - only performed by someone else (sounded like one guy on a guitar) and it just sucked the soul right out of the song, IMHO. I think Gryph would be most displeased.

Yeah, I caught that by being equally negligent with my 30-sec skip duties. Ugh. I bled from the ears.

Gryph's seen it, and cringed, IIRC.

On the other hand, the Sara Lee commercial that appropriates "Happy Happy, Joy Joy" is great.

Uh- I hate that. One of my favorites was Melissa Ferrick's Everything I Need being used by Sears... and so, to acknowledge the horror, in concert she broke out with "everything I need, is right here at Sears, right here at Sears, right here at Sears..." lol

Nissan has Morning Wood

There is a comercial using 'Morning Wood' by Morning wood for Nissan I think, maybe chevvy. Any way, they only use the clips of the song, but it was still odd.
