TV Commercial Music: House “Frozen” Promo

While I didn’t get to watch it since I was driving home after the game, the episode of House that immediately followed and was touted throughout the Super Bowl looked like a good one (I’m a big fan of the show.) I was also pleased with their choice of music. I already love the theme song for House which is “Teardrop” by Massive Attack (which might get it’s own post, it’s been used elsewhere.)

One of the promos for the episode featured the song “Breathe Me” by Sia. This song (video below) was first made popular in the series finale for Six Feet Under where it was used as an overlay for the final (tear-jerking) moments of the episode. It’s a great song, and it has a really great video:

I can’t imagine how long that took. I love that in a single Polaroid she’s wearing a Storm Trooper helmet. Geeky girls are hot. You can buy the song on iTunes here if you’re feeling plaintive. I might have to make a mix since I really enjoy this type of music.

Lyrics, for those that like that sort of thing:

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And, the worst part is there’s no-one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Ouch I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah I think that I might break
Lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

TV Commercial Music: Playstation 3 Ad

I saw a few good commercials yesterday during the Super Bowl. One that stuck with me was the following Playstation 3 ad:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SgHZ2xaigwk

I liked the song. It has a good evil-broadcast-from-a-podium, “can you dig it” vibe and some pleasing rhymes. So, in the wake of the popularity of my last two commercial music posts, I thought I’d do some research.

The song used is called “Ladies and Gentleman” by Saliva. Remember Saliva? They sang that song “New Disease” or “Your Disease” or “I’m Diseased” or something, it was crap. This song, however, is fierce as hell.

Grab it from iTunes here.

For those that are interested, here are the lyrics:

“Ladies And Gentlemen”=

Ladies and gentlemen please
Would you bring your attention to me?
For a feast for your eyes to see
An explosion of catastrophe

Like nothing you’ve ever seen before
Watch closely as I open this door
Your jaws will be on the floor
After this you’ll be begging for more

Welcome to the show
Please come inside
Ladies and gentlemen

Boom
Do you want it?
Boom
Do you need it?
Boom
Let me hear it
Ladies and gentlemen

Boom
Do you want it?
Boom
Do you need it?

Boom
Let me hear it
Ladies and gentlemen

Ladies and gentlemen good evening
You’ve seen that seeing is believing
Your ears and your eyes will be bleeding
Please check to see if you’re still breathing

Hold tight cause the show it not over
If you will please move in closer
Your about to be bowled over
By the wonders you’re about to behold here

Welcome to the show
Please come inside
Ladies and gentlemen

Boom
Do you want it?
Boom
Do you need it?
Boom
Let me hear it
Ladies and gentlemen
