Another commercial song I hate: Annie Little "Fly Me Away"

Post by exitflagger »

Otherwise known as the Kindle commercial song that makes me want to kill people. They invented the word "cloying" just for this song.

Come... Come and hate with me. :evil:

Bonus clip: Two perfectly nice looking young girls that I am unfortunately going to have to murder now.

It's a song for all the wannabe Junos of the world.

Get abortions, retards.

Here's another one. From the Subaru Outback commercial.

What is the fucking deal with these gag reflex-tripping songs on commercials these days? Can't really fault the artists, they would just flounder into obscurity if some total cocksucking queen of a commercial director didn't shove them in our faces on the television.

I boycott all these products. Of course I wasn't going to buy a goddamn Outback anyway, but still. I take notice of the products these wretched songs are selling and I actively spread rumors that they should be avoided at all cost. I'll tell everybody I know who are shopping cars that Subaru Outbacks are total janky-ass lemons whether it's true or not.

Shiny Toy Guns completely shitting up Blue Oyster Cult's "Burnin' For You" in a car commercial. So fucking ghey it's painful.

There's a conspiracy here. I'm convinced of it.

Yeah, I made a hate thread about that one back when they were showing the damn thing on TV every 5 minutes.

Okay, this is a local ad for a commercial college. I was unaware that a black guy could rap this white:

Just a guess, but I kind of assume by and large that community college students may not have the greatest taste in music. Maybe they're trying to speak to the demographic in their own language.

Continuing on, the Southwest.com commercial:

Who else besides me wants to grab the guitar away from el dorko thumb-strummer and smash it over his head, Bluto style?

Okay, here's another one. Guilty party is Joanna Newsom and the song is "Bridges And Balloons". I guess it's supposed to sound precious but I think somebody is going to end up making an attempt to kill Ms. Newsom if they keep showing this commercial.

For her sake, please, stop the madness!

Never listened to Joanna Newsom. One of her songs was sampled by The Roots and I dug that. I think she's 'hip'. Why else would ?uestlove sample her, ha.

Yeah, "hip" is not always a free pass, especially when you sound like the creepy midget Poltergeist woman when you try to sing.

On the upside, here's a commercial that proves not all music used for these things has to be horrible to be effective. Appropriating the super-awesome "Natural's Not In It" by Gang Of Four:
