PostSubject: Choons from ads   Fri Jan 16, 2009 4:09 pm

With the majority of ads making me want to throw my telly out the window, before making me realise the reason I hate them so much is that I see them too often and I should really get out and enjoy the lovely sunshine we're getting lately, I thought of two savage songs I came accross because of ads (but if anyone asks it's cos I'm just good at finding good music). They're below... if anyone has any other gems from ads that I can claim to've found then it'd be handy....

From the latest Surf ad -

I like the tune Vodafone use, the "keep on moving..you're the one for me" but I haven't identified who the artist is or indeed the actual name of the track.

This is the original piss take Spike Jones video from 1942 that is used on the Schweppes ad.'Cocktails for Two'

He looks uncannily like Jimmy Cagney. The original composer of the song from the 20's was apparently miffed with this version. I guess he won't be buying any of their delicious tonic water any time soon.

Spike was the dude who had a hit with 'All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth'.

One of the main reason's I'm opposed to banning alcohol advertising is that they make such good ads. That's pretty selfish of me I know.

But I remember liking stella Artois ads (they don't seem to make them any more) partly because of their cinematic brilliance and partly because of their Verdi (ripped off from Jean de Florette).

Any excuse to put this up is good really: Stella Artois

It's all about memorableness (is that a word?) This one still pops into my head after 20-odd years...

Well if it's memorableness we're talking aout, how's about this from when I was nine? Fits the thread perfectly.

Guinness - Dancing Man

Absolute classic.

Roger was a talented guy. He scored some great goals in Itallia 90.

I think we're wandering off the OP but...

Everyone's a Fruit and Nut Case is one I remember. It must have been re-released after 1975.. yeah right

But in the spirit of the thread, here's one great song. This was my teengage introduction to Muddy Waters...

Phew.

Does anyone remember the ad for the Sunday Independent Mad , radio (and maybe TV), featuring this beautiful music by Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman? It's best known as the theme from the great 1973 movie Badlands, starring the anti-fluoridation campaigner, Martin Sheen.

Yes, I do. It's rather lovely and, as your face suggests far too good for the Sindo.

I think the classics should be off-limits to advertisers. Its very lazy of anybody to sell their product on the back of a genius, dead or not.
I have a personal policy of downgrading any product advertised in this fashion. The way I figure it - who wants to be associated with anybody who has so little appreciation of fine music?

Gassenhauer. Absolutely beautiful. Was also in a volkswagon ad according to the CD I got. Jesus, finding the name of random pieces of music from TV was incredably difficult before the internet.

Viz once had a section for 'Lame Claim to Fame'

One guy won a pen because his ex-girlfriend's brother-in-law met Rory Mc Grath's cousin's wife at a motorway service station.

Sorry that was a useless post. My other claim to fame is that my uncle, a former publican once told Angus Macanally to f-off while he was obstructing business with his filming during the Fleadh Ceoil in 1994.

I've a horrible habit of posting off topic. As an act of contrition i'll add Jose Gonzales song that was used in the TV add with all the balls bounching down a street. Great add, excellent music. I actually bought the album on the back of it and was very disappointed by the rest of his work.

I did the same and felt the same, shutuplaura, but if you read the sleeve you'll notice that the only song he didn't write is the one you mention.

This is the original by The Knife.

Are you sure that wasn't for the Irish Times?

Thank you very much, when i get home from work I'll take a listen. I heard his new album was inspired by The God Delusion. I seriously doubt any of the tracks will be used in any innovative, well convienced yet visually stunning advertisements.

The Carl Orff was definately for the Sindo by the way. I spent ages going around asking people in record shops who did the music to the Sunday independant ad. his music was also used in Excalabur (the Film not the alcohol free beer) and the guinness add with the surfer, which i don't remember personally I have to say. I had to get one of those music from the ads you love CD's to find it.

Just heard the same piece of beautiful music in the film Finding Forrester (2000) with Seán Connery.

Wow Shocked I always thought that was the True Romance theme tune. You learn something new every day.

I love that Levis ad Kate, that takes me waaaay back.

I used to get goosebumps watching this ad for Guinness though quite what the subject matter has to do with alcohol I can't say.

Its also in used (slightly changed) In True Romance. Carl Orff was a genius, and It seems a nazi. Naughty boy...

It is drawing comparisons between the long wait and anticipation surfers have before a big, thrilling wave and the anticipation one has for enjoying a pint of Guinness as you watch it settle on the bar. The visual cue of the wave resembling the head of a Guinness makes this comparison clear. The ad also reinforces the idea that Guinness is a masculine creation given the absence of women surfers and a male voice-over which indicates the desired target market of Guinness. It's a good ad.
