Music I like - or at least am familiar with - that’s been on TV (all of these have been noted by myself or others on rec.music.progressive, but I felt that they were surprising enough to write about them again):
- Jethro Tull’s “Thick as a Brick” in a Hyundai ad
- Asia’s “Heat of the Moment” in South Park
- Múm’s “i’m 9 today” in a Sony Vaio ad
I was probably most surprised by the Múm - the idea of Sony using the music of an obscure Icelandic electronica outfit would seem rather far-fetched, but I guess not. The music didn’t really fit the ad all that well, I didn’t think - or maybe that’s just because it’s not your typical advertisement background music, so it just seemed a bit out of place.
