Central New Jersey news, and whatever else catches my interest, filtered through the sarcasm of a resident living in the center of Our Fair State.
Speaking of another piece of something, have they used "Piece o' My Heart" in a commercial yet?Every time I hear a great tune in a commercial it really does bug me, but then it sends me to the collection to play the original and feel that old feeling again, too.
When I hear "Dream On" on car commercials I feel like I heard the Prom Queen drove the train with the whole football team.
Playing behind the weather forecast and selling cars are two different beasts, IMO. I hate that I can't hear "Been a Long Time" on the radio now without thinking of Cadillacs.Aerosmith, in my admittedly minority view, have always been a commercial band. I never considered them as having any higher calling than making money, so hearing them played over a Buick ad just confirms it.What would put me in my grave would be hearing a Nirvana song used to sell products--not because their music is particularly sacred per se, but because Kurt Cobain was so rabidly anti-commercial. Which is funny, because the "Teen Spirit" in "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was the name of a deoderant. Long story.
Hey Jeri..The Led Zep song is "Black Dog" not "Been a long Time". Yes, the story behind the name of SLTS is ironic. I agree that using a Nirvana song in a commercial would be so incredibly * WRONG! *
