This may not be news to many of you, but I have stumbled across a great little site which does exactly what it says on the tin: TV ad music.
Adverts are, occasionally, real works of art. The Guinness ads always stick in my mind as being genius. So often they are made all the more memorable by the music. The one that bugged me until recently was the new ad for Walkers Baked. It’s not a work of art by any means, but I do like the tune. To be honest, it struck me as a decent theme tune for my cat, a handsomely thuggish, black Norwegian Forest Cat (alongside the theme tune for the Crazy 88 in Kill Bill):
All these years of watching ads and wondering who wrote the music… Solved! And the answer was Air. Described as “French electronic knob twiddlers”.
