The Weekly Top 5 Countdown: Commercial Music


The Weekly Top 5 Countdown has gone commercial– sold out! In a way…well we’ve got a list of tunes that are used in a variety of commercial endeavors. Say what you will about the ethics of art and capitalism, but we actually think these songs didn’t suffer for their use in commercials. Far from it, they likely benefited and in some cases, is the basis for their success. Here’s what Scott Mullins and I came up with…

  1. Walkmen – We’ve Been Had

    One of my favorite tracks from one of the great bands still making music. I realize that’s a lot of superlatives, but I mean every one of them.
