I Saw It On TV

For today's KRQR Double Shot, I have two songs that I've gotten into through commercial means. These songs were probably hot months or years ago but you know me, a little slow.

First up is The Moldy Peaches song "Anyone Else But You" aka the song that Ellen Page and that Hugh Grant of the teen set (meaning working the befuddled charm angle) Michael Cera sing at the end of the film Juno. I also heard the melody of this song used in a recent commercial I think it was for either a theme park or state tourism. Anyway, the song has a nice trade off of male and female voices like they're having a musical conversation. Pleasant and intriguing stuff.

The second one is The Submarines "You, Me and the Bourgeoisie" aka the AT&T song. Everytime I listen to it I can't help but think "More bars in more places, the new AT&T" which takes some of the fun away but lets face it, without the commercial I wouldn't know this song from dirt. Now that I've heard it, I like it!.

I'm surprised, the AT&T one has been on tv constantly for months. Actually, after looking it up it's the IPhone and not AT&T. Anyway, here's a link to one of the commercials:
