Thread Name: Appropriate folk tunes for TV ads
Subject: Appropriate folk tunes for TV ads
I was whiling away a pleasant house last night, leafing through my scrapbook of papillae maximae with the TV burbling away in the background when, during the ad break, I heard the strains of that old English dance tune "The Winster Gallop". Couldn't remember what the ad was for, but it seems that the ad men have got round to using folk tunes in TV ads.
What folkie tunes/songs do you think might be suitable for TV ads? You know the sort of thing: "I drove an old Rover for many a year..", etc.
