Music Video of the Week

I get probably an embarrassing amount of new music through commercials (and video games), but for whatever reason ad agencies over the last decade of done a really fantastic job of becoming music aficionados and staying ahead of the curve. So either it’ll hip me to something new, or it’ll hip everybody else to something that I was listening to way before they sold out (blah blah blah).

Anyway, this is the former, and yeah this is in a car commercial, but whatever, when I first heard the beginning bars of the chorus I was hooked, and have since bought the album (which is very good).

Neon Trees – Everybody Talks

  1. I totally agree with the lede. It may be even more pronounced in those of us who are woefully behind in music trends. As the most obvious example I can think of: Are You Gonna Be My Girl was a fantastic song, which I never would have heard without Apple. I can imagine an entire generation of kids rediscovering Queen from that Las Vegas hotel commercial, and I am perfectly OK with that.
