Who Gives U Extra ?

Recommended Posts

Just picked myself up from the floor having seen the latest Halifax advert - Howard (as I'm reliably informed ) singing Barry White's "everything" -

Anyone else like to nominate the best usage of soul music in tv adverts ?

There's a car loan advert that uses sweetest feeling as background music.

Still gotta be Rubin-You been away used to advertise Felix cat food. A long time back, but the first true northern i've ever heard for an advert. Nowadays they're all over the telly. :yes:

I'd like to nominate the Big Dollop on the Hellmans ad for the first true soulie dancer on telly. Some of his moves are very familiar. Everytime time he comes on my wife shouts, 'northern soul!' to taunt me... :angry:

I must be going in the wrong Halifax then!!! He seems to be able to park his 'big' car outside the branch, takes me half an hour to find somewhere! (and I only have a fiesta!!) whistling.gif

There's a good funky instro version of 'Comin' Home Baby' on a mobile phone ad at the mo that is quite good. And a recent land rover add featured a rock version of 'Have Love Will Travel' not realy my cup of tea tho.

I remember Neil Jones suggesting in an article some 'suitable tracks for some products. If I can find it I'll post it up but one that sticks in my mind was 'Baby Don't You Weep' as a tune for 'Tena Landy' whistling.gif

There was that life assurance ad a couple of years back that used the backing track to Sam Fletcher - I'd Think It Over (minus the vocal). That certainly pricked my ears up as I was slouched in front of the telly after a hard day's graft!!

What about a soul take on the police recruitment set of ads -

The line could be ..

If I was asked to dance to overplayed oldies in an ill fitting vest in a disused village hall with 3 grams of industrial drain cleaner inside me :

I DONT THINK I COULD

(PAUSE)

COULD YOU : (close)

On one edition of Wife Swap they played "Lover" by the DeLites at the end and on that Johnny Vegas/Dave Spikey thing they played "Take A Giant Step" by the Profiles. They even had the pause in the music written into the script so Spikey started talking and the music came back in to embarrass him.

Mind you they played "Ghost In My House" on the next instalment.
