Be Honest...Am I Weird?

Did the post title get your attention?
(Imagine the searches that are going to come off of that!!)

I already know (for the most part) the answer to that question-
trust me, I hear it
a lot.

One thing that adds to my weirdness-




Do you have playlist like that?
It is full of songs that I have heard in commercials that get stuck in my head.
And I have to hear all of it because i feel like I am missing something if I don't.
And 9 times out of 10, I end up really liking it.
So I end up in iTunes and it ends up on my playlist.

Is that weird?
Most of the time, people fast foward through the commercials with DVRs.
We have a DVR- I would be lost without that
but when I am alone and I know The Mr won't blow a gasket, I watch them.

It's not a secret either- because we play "Guess what commercial this is from" in the van all the time!!


Each little snippet is 20-30 secs long. You'll recognize several of them!


This is the song that started it all for me. I heard this one back in April or May of last year- You can "feel" the inspiration in this song.

Smidi- Honda commercial



Keep going...
many of these were very popular from the commercial first- then went to radio!

Alex Clare- Internet Explorer




Kishi Bashi- Bright Whites- Windows 8 commercial



Jose Gonzalez- Sony Commerical


Lenka- Crate and Barrel commercial


Yael Naim- MacBook Air commercial (the song I used in the "snow dance")


KidStreet- Mac Book Pro Commercial- another instrumental- great to listen to while I'm walking


(I love to sing this one to The Mr.)
Various Cruelties- Zales Commercial


Tim McMorris- Sam Adams Commercial


Jasime Ash- Ferrero Rocher Commercial


and finally- I probably wouldn't like this song if there were people in the commercial- but I LOVE THIS DOG!!!

Ray Lamontage- Travelers Commercial


Check back later this week for some great activities from the class.
For now, I am going to go soak my feet- today I was "inspired" a little too much to walk a little farther than my feet were comfortable carrying me:)

Have a Great Day tomorrow!!

  2. Ok I admit, I'll sometimes write down a lyric or google the ad to find out the song from commercials. I guess that makes me kinda weird too!

  5. So funny! My hubby and I were playing "name that tune" the other day with songs on my phone. Now we get to play "name that commercial"!
