Sujal has this popular post on his site about music from TV commercials, and it is hugely popular — so popular that Sujal is constructing a site devoted solely to the cause of TV commerical music. I have toi say I’m one of those snobs that gets upset by the fact that my husband gets most of his music from TV commercials. Then this morning, as I listened to my refined source of news and entertainment, NPR, I heard a report about the rise of indie bands selling their songs for use in commercials — for exposure, to make some, cash, etc. They referred to snobs like me — though the snobs they referred to were more upset about bands “selling out,” whereas I’m just not a huge fan of advertisement in general.
