Commercial-ization

I am one of the world’s biggest audiophiles. I love music. I love commercials, even. Especially when they include good music.

I will share some of what I found that you may not know….

The Polaroid commercial using “It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)” was actually performed by a group called Gabin, and the song is called “Doo Uap, Doo Uap, Doo Uap”. It’s 7:23 long in it’s original form.

The Holland America Cruise Line commercial uses “Edge of the Ocean” by “Ivy”.

There are three different Chrysler commericals using songs by Celine Dion: “I Drove All Night”, “When Love Is All We Need”, and “One Heart”.

but the jingle that drove me insane (other than the Polaroid commerical) was the new “theme” to Food Network. There was just something catchy about the lines:

Are you hungry for a little more
than what you’ve had before?
Are you hungry for a taste of life?
whet your appetite, are you hungry?

Tonight, I found out the group who performs the song “Hungry” is called “Kosheen”. It’s a full fledged song, which really has little, if anything to do with food. The lyrics are in the extended entry.

Kosheen – Hungry

You’re like a child with old eyes,
cynical and sensible, always full of surprises
you travel far and wide
looking for the feeling, lost inside of you

They don’t understand you, no
until it’s too late
with everything they’ve handed you
on a silver plate

-CHORUS-
Are you hungry for a little more
than what you’ve had before?
Are you hungry for a taste of life?
whet your appetite, are you hungry?

Now give me this mountainside
cool waters to lie beside
give me these two strong eyes
to see the difference between truth and lies
Ah, give me this feeling when you kiss me baby
every day and every night
That’s all I need, yes
Everything is gonna be all right

-CHORUS-

You’re like a sight for sore eyes, lyrical and gentle
borderlining sentimental
You’re like a dream realised
so why do I keep falling back to sleep,
I’m so serious and deep.

-CHORUS-

-CHORUS-

    I too love good tv songs, so thank for the info about the Food Network’s new song Are you Hungry.
    I love that song, and the Food Net is brilliant for using it.

    Thanks.

    You are so fab…. That song on the food network was literally HAUNTING me for days… Thanks, thanks! My usual attempts at locating it came up empty handed because there weren’t too many lyrics. Thanks!
