You Know That Song? From That Commercial?
AdTunes.com is a weblog that covers music used in " television commercials, movie trailers, movie soundtracks, tv shows, video games and more." There are archives, of course, as well as a forum where you can post or answer questions. They're also searchable, which means I finally(!!!) know whose song was used for a VW commercial - the one where a group of friends are driving with the top down at night, a full moon overhead, the light filtering through the trees. They're heading to a party, but when they get there, no one wants to get out. So they get back on the road, driving into that endless moonlit night. The music is spare and beautiful - and it's haunted me ever since.
