Ya ever have that one song that crawls into your ear canal and won’t let go?
You’re humming it in the shower, not knowing the lyrics? You’re singing it full-throated in traffic (at least the 1/5 of the chorus that’s intelligible)? You don’t know where you heard it, who sings it or if it’s just a clever jingle, but you need it like a drug?
Yeah, me too.
The thing is, I don’t remember liking this song then as much as I do now. I was all in to Molly’s Chambers, which was in a VW Jetta ad.
Unfortunately, YouTube has taken down
all a bunch of VW ads off their site and there’s nary a mention on VW.com, although I did learn about another musical endeavor between VW and Wilco, of which I was previously unaware. Kismet (and good music).
Here’s another VW ad that features the track Molly’s Chambers, but I don’t think this is the original one. If you know better, let me know. ;-)
Anyhow, this whole sordid stuck-in-head/do some research on the internet/listen to good tunes cycle has me wondering two things:
- How cool would it be to pick the music in car ads?
- What other ads have infiltrated my brain through music but haven’t punctured my conscious mind
- What other albums do I own that I’ve forgotten or overlooked their coolness
A: Pretty damn cool
Anybody else craving steak? No? Just me then?
The mind boggles. iTunes/iPod on random for a while
