Anoro does a horrible version of 'Go Your Own Way'.
Ozempic does an awful version of 'Magic' which gets stuck in my head.
Now here comes another one, Trelegy, botching The Jackson 5's 'ABC'. GET OUTTA HERE! How does the remaining Jacksons feel about that song being used for another frigging' pill?! AngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryDeadDeadDead

The more they make royalties off of Michael, the less they need to find work for themselves...  LOL

As I watched that ad, I thought a better song would have been O.P.P. ...  Wink

Absolutely nauseating! AngryDead 

I'm just gonna site here and wait until Big Pharma buys a Prince song ("Lets Go Crazy" - for clearer skin and less plaque psoriasis)

Or Glenn Frey "The Heat Is On" - for Icy Hot - or a medication to cure burning urination from Gonorrhea.

Just buy up every dead musicians discography and change the lyrics to classic tunes.

The song Rock and Roll Heaven seems silly at this point, doesn't it?  What was there at that point---maybe 10 dead rockers to choose from?

I'm surprised they've never used this song for a deodorant or a mouthwash commercial...

I saw a Capital One commercial with MJ during this miserable Eagles game.


I GUESS I was late with the Prince song, that was used in a sh*t Capital One ad - with a title from The Who. So lame! Dead

Big pharma would be too late.

Big finance has already beaten them to it...

Why?  Why?  Why?  Prince fans can love it (keeps his music alive for future generations) or hate it (disrespectful, too soon to capitalize on his death), but it also pisses me off that a credit card company wants people to go crazy spending money.  Angry

They could've mentioned the Big Bopper, Richie Valens and Buddy Holly, who all, coincidentally, died "the day the music died".  Imagine that!  Wink

I read that the songwriter felt that the Big 3 were already commemorated in other songs.

From songfacts.com:

Patrick from Shelton, Ct
The reason Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Bopper were not mentioned was twofold:

1. There had been tribute songs to them, Three Stars by Tommy Dee, Carol Kaye and the Teen Aires, released a month or so after they died. Also, the death of Buddy Holly had been dissected over and over in Don Mc Lean's late 1971/early 1972 hit 'American Pie. 

2. The singers mentioned in Rock and Roll Heaven had died within 3 or 4 years of the songs's release in May of 1974, and therefore were more "contemporary".

Makes sense.  The Day the Music Died was Feb 3 1959.
