80s Music in Commercials

It is disturbing to see some of my favorite songs from the 80s infiltrating the tv commercial landscape.

The The has sold out to M&Ms which I never thought that I would see. The Cure was featured in a polaroid ad a few years ago, but there are many popping up now.

Our House for Maxwell House?
Don’t You Want Me for Chips Ahoy?

This is getting ridiculous.

Here is a list of songs from the 80s that have been “butchered” by tv commercials:

Songs from the Eighties That Have Been In Commercials, Index

Well, it was bound to happen, and it has been happening now for a while, Commercials bleeding the memory of the eighties, for music. The first one I remember is “Like A Rock” and then “Born in the USA.” Now it’s food items. What’s next? I’d love to hear your recomendations.
