Songs Used In Commercials

I have to be honest, I don’t understand a lot of the kinds of “art” Gnarls Barkely creates. there is no debate in saying that Gnarls is DEFINITELY an eccentric artist. But, you wanna know something else? Most artists are inspired by other artist in some way shape or form. At the moment, there’s absolutely no one I can think of I can compare him to. This guy literally seems like he’s from another fucking planet! šŸ¤£ However, if you concentrate and listen through all what sounds like disorganized notes from the instruments being played, Gnarls actually has a great voice! But, you’d never know it because his music beats are pieces of shit (in my opinion, sorry). I also think (in my opinion) that his voice fits better singing the kinds of music that Curtis Harding makes. Gnarls voice almost sounds like it belongs in a different era.

Sadly, I think Gnarls will continue to be a one hit wonder, because he was just too eccentric then, and now for the music culture of today.

Unfortunately, Gnarls Barkely is a one hit wonder, and it happens to be the only song he produced I actually like. That song is called “Crazy (2006).” This has such an awesome sick beat, anyone of any age can groove to this beat. It’s also sort has an old school sound too. It’s the only song from this album were the music beats themselves appear to be coherent. According to my research, the song has hit #3 on the American Pop Charts, and number #1 in the UK. From what I’ve read, after his one hit reign, he went on hiatus in 2010. As far as I can tell he hasn’t been performing (with the exception of a few commercials here and there). I found a nice remix on SoundCloud of Crazy that sounds nice as well. This song is a very unique hit, and I think any changes made to this song would fuck it up royally.

You Get What You Give by Beacon Street

Still ruff dealing with my loss. But I figured the best thing to do is keep on writing. I want to share with you a song that came out this year. It’s a song produced for the University of Phoenix commercial. The song is called “You Get What You Give,” by Beacon Street. It doesn’t appear that I can find anything on this “band?” It could have been just a project specifically for the purpose of promoting the commercial.

People Must Have Really Liked This Song

Having said that, people must have really liked this song! Because if this was just for the commercial, I don’t understand why something like this would be out as a single on Spotify? For the longest time, when I heard this on TV, I thought the singer was Norah Jones. Which I love her music  too btw; they both have that very smooth jazzy/folk style.

I Thought It Was Norah Jones

Although, I can’t seem to find the name of the female singing in the group (unless her name is really Mack); I did manage to find out that the song was actually a reinterpretation. This was originally performed by a group called New Rascals in 1998, and the song hit #36 on the Top 100 Charts. I barely remember this song. To be honest, I loved the way “Beacon Street” sang it better. Interesting that Beacon Street received a little more than 180k plays, from just hearing the song from the commercial. Imagine if it was properly marketed in the music arena? Hmmm
