After sharing about our fave video game songs, today, we are sharing about our “favourite song from an advert.” It’s definitely a lot more exciting for me. So, without further ado, here goes…
1. Jet – Are you Gonna Be My Girl | Apple – iPod + iTunes Ad (2008)
I shall start with the oldest one which still has a strong imprint in my mind. I liked how this Apple ad was simple and straightforward while still encompassing the whole idea of the product – colourful music player for all types of music lovers. And, I think Jet’s song totally complimented the colour changes, dance moves, and the “swag” that apple wanted it’s users to feel.
2. Train – Shake Up Christmas | Coca-Cola – Shake Up Christmas Ad (2010)
Coca Cola ads has always been impressive, especially the Christmas-themed ones. But I really liked this particular “Shake Up” one. There was this whole snowglobe thing and simple wish for everyone to be together during Christmas. I probably heard this song on one of those years when I couldn’t fly back home – hence touching a soft spot in me. And, most importantly, I liked that Train was singing it. I think the whole song was written specially for this ad and I liked how everything seems to fit. Plus, it’s a Christmas song, what more can I say?
3. Lenka – Everything At Once | Microsoft – Windows 8 Ad (2012)
I had no idea who Lenka was when I first saw this ad. In fact, I thought, wow! That’s a cool song and music video. Little did I know it was actually a Windows 8 advertisement. I’m sorry I don’t use Windows 8 but I must say, this song is so catchy I probably almost got one. I like that the lyrics was subtly trying to describe Windows 8 with a nice little bow ending for their tagline “Everything at Once.” Every time people talk about Windows 8, this song would secretly play in my head. I guess I shall congratulate, Lenka for choosing a brilliant advertising platform then! (not the other way around) Haha!
Okay. Sorry if any of this songs continuously plays in your head for the rest of the day now…
