60 Seconds of Music

I love music! I will stop and listen to songs that capture my ears. From Gospel, Rock, R&B, Jazz, Classical, and Country, if I hear a melody that rings 100 in my head, I will give it a listen.

What really bedazzles me, though, are the songs in the background of commercials! Specifically, there are two commercials with these amazing songs that I really like! When they come on, I stop what I am doing and listen intently. I think about writing when these songs come on, but unfortunately, they are only 60 seconds long.

The first song is from Childish Gambino. It is from the Cadillac Commercial. The song is called “Me and Your Mama.” Give a listen:

Me and Your Mama – Cadillac Commercial

Yeah, it is rather lengthy, but it has that “back in the day” type of melody and feel. It is a cool song!

The next song is from a Volkswagen commercial. It is the new Arteon from Volkswagen – the ad itself is a music video, but the song is very catchy (to me). When I tried to look it up to listen to the entire song, I only found the snippet from the commercial. It is by an artist named Love. I will have to do some further investigation. Anyway, it is called “Look Down in Awe.” Give a listen:

Volkswagen Song

Like it? Well, if you don’t, I do.

Let’s just say the Cadillac and Volkswagen marketing teams got this consumer to watch their commercials because of the music. Unfortunately, I am not in the market of buying a new car (especially a Cadillac or Volkswagen). Both vehicles are very durable, sleek, and yes, expensive, but not for me. I don’t know how the rest of the American consumers are soaking up these commercials because of the music, but I can tell that many people have been looking up the songs by the search on Google and Youtube.

Since Cadillac or Volkswagen did not convince me to buy their vehicles, they did help Childish Gambino and Love push their music to the forefront for me. I am impressed! I wonder which car commercial will be next to showcase another musical artist?

Oh well. This has been a brief message from your friendly blogger. Now, back to your show!
