You know the song that changed your life? The song that was the theme song to Summer 1976? The song that made you change the way you think about life, love and the pursuit of happiness?
Well, today, it's just another song showing up in commercials.
Journey's "Any Way You Want It" - State Farm Insurance
Ozzy's "Crazy Train" - Mitsubishi and any other car company that wants to be cool with an edge
Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" - 60s surfer anthem sold out to Sunkist orange soda
Helen Reddy's "I Am Woman" - Women's liberation anthem used by Burger King to promote the Double Whopper
Eminem's "My Name Is" - used in NFL commercials
Word to Smileys, Little Monsters, Biebers and potential Miss America contestants - the things you love and are having tattooed on your body today is a McDonald's theme song tomorrow. Parapapapa, I'm lovin' it.
