This one is likely to be endlessly updated.
Adverts try and create good feelings about their product, hopefully leading to future sales - and I'm sure this works well, but the one things adverts usually do for me is sell me the incidental music. I'm sure that's intentional. For example I can't drive but car adverts are doing a roaring trade in selling me music or at least flagging it up to me.
In all cases the band name is in bold, it's not always clear who's the band and which is the song title ;)
1. Woodkid - Run Boy Run
This came from an advert for a mobile phone company that successfully managed to get into my consciousness precisely because I realised I had to pay attention to the advert so I could find out what to search for on YouTube. Well done them.
2. Stealing Sheep - Shut Eye
Saw this on a TV advert for the programme Hollyoaks. It seems to be a fairly unpleasant programme where nobody is nice to anyone else (not quite as awful as Come Dine With Me which is just flat-out unpleasantness, with catering).
3. Leila - Underwaters
From the enchanting Avios advert which turned out to be for Air Miles. Since I don't fly (not for environmental reasons and I love air flights, just hate the accompanying check-in faffy interminableness) they're not doing much business out of me for that reason.
4. ALB - Golden Chains
Since I'm a little bit in love with the guy who's running around with his yellow underpants on I thought I'd post the actual advert too. His name's Tom Bennett and he plays both characters.
Singer/songwriter Peter Swaffield at St Thomas Church - Did you know there are concerts at St Thomas Church, tucked away on Maryon Road? I didn’t, but I do now. Coming up on Friday 7 June (7.30pm, £4 admission)…...
