Ahh, The Sound of Music

Do you ever pay attention to commercials? I do sometimes. Some can be funny while others are just down right annoying.

Then you get the ones with the songs in them. The ones that catch your ear.

Yeah, Target and Lincoln are guilty of that. I don't know what it is about those two but they really touch a cord with the music they choose......and I love it!!!

I looked up the original song by The Church, which so happens to be an 80's song. No surprise there on why I like the song so much. However, I found that I actually like the commercial's version more. Only wish I could get the whole version and not just some 30 second blip of it.

Then you have Target. They have had several commercials with great music. They know how to keep us coming back. Just give us the music! No really, I love Target, music or no music.

Plus, it's better than their competitors slogan...."Save Money, Live Better, Walmart".

So, again.....

Do you pay attention to commercials? If so, which ones do you like and why?

Oh, man, there's this one jewelry commercial - and I forget which company it is - where the woman gets scared during a thunderstorm and the man comes up behind her and says something to the effect of, 'Don't worry, I'm right here' and then he reveals this box with an engagement ring it and says, 'forever.' Or something like that. Anyway, it always makes me laugh because as a woman, I get kind of insulted that I should be coddled and frightened during a thunderstorm. I actually think they're interesting to watch.

I always notice the medicine ones... you know.. the ones that have all of the "watch out for's" at the end of the commercial and I just laugh!!! I actually have Andrew and Ma listening for them to... I mean come on... Viagra... may cause blindness, deaf, or even death?? Is this really something that you want to risk just to get "a happy"??? Again... I don't get it!!! LOLOL ;-) *HUGS*
