It's Time For My Music.

I cannot stand the lackluster imagination of the current crew of ad-execs. They're Lazy.Lazy.Lazy. They are taking wonderful music of decades past and using it to hype their crappy products.
Todd Rundgren. Hello It's Me. (How dare you take MY TODD and prostitute him for some kind of stomach pill?) Human League. Don't You Want Me Baby. (For a freakin' mop!??!!) Ace. How Long Has This Been Going On.
(I'm pretty sure this song is being hi-jacked/compromised too, but I don't even remember for what product. These ad people are LAME! I should at the very least be able to remember the product. Isn't that what you're trying to do? Get me to remember a product? Sheeze. LAME!) OMG! As I'm writing this post, I just heard yet ANOTHER COMMERCIAL, this time for a HOOVER vacuum cleaner, and just guess what ICON is singing. Why, it's (Sacre Bleu!): Etta James. At Last. And this is just absolute sacrilege. Well, after I looked up these first 4 songs, I just got on a roll and looked up other songs I liked from 30 years plus ago. I KNOW there are a bunch of others out there that I absolutely floved, but remember, this is the 70's I'm talking about, so it stands to reason that I don't remember a whole lot. Plus, I threw in a few 80's stuff just to mix it up. Please enjoy:
Paul Davis. I Go Crazy.
Little River Band. Reminiscing.
Bon Jovi. How Long Has This Been Going On. Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. Still You Turn Me On. Dude, he's CHEWING GUM. Check it out.
Hall and Oates. ManEater.
Chicago. If You Leave Me Now. Gotta admit- lead singer has kick-ass hair.
Dire Straits. Sultans of Swing.
Supertramp. Logical Song.
Hall and Oates. Rich Girl.
Billy Idol. White Wedding. Pat Benatar. Hit Me With Your Best Shot. Christopher Cross. Sailing. Toto. Hold The Line. Allman Brothers. Ramblin' Man. Annie Lennox. Walking On Broken Glass. Looking Glass. Brandy. Kansas. Dust In The Wind. Anything by the Doobie Brothers. Anything by Steely Dan. Anything by Hall and Oates. Anything by Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. And for you Mr. Hawthorne, my favorite: Pink Floyd. Dark Side of the Moon.

I know Rosie, it drives me crazy too!

Surely they can find some folks to write some simple jingles like they did years ago? I've still got some of those old jingles stuck in my head, so they have done their job!

Oh Hall and Oates...I used to think that people were saying "Holland Oats" when they announced them on the radio. Brother of Ken and one of his friends went as Hall and Oates to a Halloween party last year.

Looks like we have very similar taste in music.

I liked the music, especially Pat and Queen.
