But this time it’s personal. Not only is it a song that has yet to be released but we don’t even know if there is a full length version recorded! Back a couple of weeks ago a Lincoln Car Commercial came on and who was singing? Cat Power. What was she singing? “Space Oddity” by David Bowie. I think one of the Ford Marketing team members is a blogger…

And I don’t mean to mention something old but when the Olympics were on guess what one of their inspirational athlete story pieces was serenaded by? Band Of Horses, “The Funereal”. Also, I was in a Gap a couple of months back and Band Of Horses was playing in there as well. The song is genius and they took it and beat it to death with sticks and stones… I just want to scream, “They have other amazing songs you nit wits!” Seriously… I have heard it so much it has lost some of it’s original appeal. It is sad but true.

Of course I am making a bigger deal out of this for shits and giggles but there is some truth here… I do feel like music is sacred and I am happy that they are getting paid the big bucks to do these commercials and get this publicity. I also think the commercials and Olympics could credit the artist’s who are giving them their art, their music. But instead I see none of that, they don’t credit them at all and that my friends is what pisses me off. Alright, I will get off my soap box now… hehe
