    How many times have you heard a great song on an ad or video, but then discovered (to your dismay) that it was commissioned, and not an actual song? In all the times that this has happened to you (if ever), what 'song' was/is your favourite?

    Personally, my favourite is 'Snap Dragon' by Johnny Green, which is featured in Balloons by Pulse Marketing. It simply has a flow to it that I really like [​IMG].

    It's called "White & Nerdy"

    Although it is a parody, I would consider it to be a real song. Otherwise ALL of Weird Al's songs "wouldn't exist" [​IMG]

    There was a bit of music in a 5-minute segment dedicated to the automated machine of "How It's Made" which sounds great, in a peaceful sort of way...

    AFAIK, the producers made it specifically. There was a YouTube video of it somewhere, don't know if it's still up.

    It's just a flash video that's not porn or crap like that. It's perfectly fine.

    That music is quite good, I guess [​IMG]


    There was the PINGAS meme on YouTube, and the edited version of "You Are a Pirate" called "THIS VIDEO SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY". It actually sounds quite good.

    Bit of a bump, but also the theme tune to "Police Stop!". I'd link to a video but I can't find any.

    Yep [​IMG] There were some other pieces of music in my head which I can't think of yet.
