This song called Too Close that's used in a car ad is awesome.
Is this love big enough to watch over me?
Big enough to let go of me
Without hurting me,

I also like the "Hey Ho" song in a Bing commercial. At least I don't mute my TV when that ad comes on ^_^

I originally found this forum while trying to find a song that was on a Hewlett-Packard commercial in 2006 or so.  It was called DV Luvva by A Band Called Me.  I eventually found it, but not here.

I like to watch you put it all together
 
It's about recording sex videos.

The song in the BMW 6 Series commercial.  It caught my attention because it was also featured in Heat freeway scene before the notorious Pacino/De Niro diner conversation.

I recently tracked down and bought a song used in a Citibank commercial.  It's called Ahead of the Wave and it's by the Non-Commissioned Officers.

The song they're using in a fall ad for Target isn't bad. Smile
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

Is it the commercial in which women are falling through the air?  If so, that's Connie Francis doing the song.  Nice to hear her.

The Old Navy skinny jeans commercial has classic Backstreet Boys, "Everybody." A+

I was digging through some VHS tapes recently and found a commercial from around 2005 (I think it was an Old Navy ad) which featured this song I actually found enjoyable:



Kind of makes me think of old school, Psyche-tinged Indie Pop/Rock music from before the times when Indie Pop/Rock music became really dumb and overly commercial... despite it being of the era when Indie music became really dumb and overly commercial. LOL

Perhaps I was just pleasantly surprised to hear a song in a (fairly) recent ad that wasn't immediately obnoxious to me...
