Music as advertising

Just recently but not more so than ususal, I suppose, music has played an amazing part in advertising for TV. The effect of this is that it can make or in some cases break a song and you also have the song stuck in your head for days and everytime you hear it you remember the show.

Two recent ones that have stuck on me are "Rolling in the Deep" Adele, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYEDA3JcQqw  which has been the theme song for Underbelly Razor http://channelnine.ninemsn.com.au/underbelly/ which was a series that I really enjoyed.

Then we have "Moves like Jagger" Marron 5 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEPTlhBmwRg&ob=av2e for the Frozen Planet http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00mfl7n who doesn't see penguins now when they hear this.

So what song do you have that makes you think of a show or movie?

Don't forget to check out our awesome song titles for this months challenges.

Cheers Annette xo

Ah yes the power of advertising.There's quite a few that come to mind.They seem to "steal much of the baby boomers music".
