No different from any other background wallpaper. used in adverts.
All that will happen is the music being associated with the product it advertises.
Think
Hamlet Cigars
Hovis
Cadbury's Fruit and Nut.
Very few people know what the music is actually called, and anyway, Holst's dead, and so is Tchaikovsky.

Tightwad advertising people. I met a guy who makes his living composing jingles just for advertisers.

I'd say it is a mistaken effort, given that so few people ever hear any folk music except Scarborough Fair, and even that mixed up with Canticle. But every time I hear the music, I remember Hamlet cigars, and I haven't seen the ad. for 40 years.

I don't know of a lot of folk tunes used in Australian tv ads. I can't think of any at present.

Not folk, but there must be an ad-man (or woman) in Australia who loves Ian Dury's music, because there is currently an ad for Woolworths using "I Want to be Straight" (odd choice) and there is an ad which pops up now and then for a cleaning product, using Billericay Dickie.

That one bothered me for years because I knew the tune and couldn't place it, and couldn't watch it until someone told me that was the tune. I didn't have that album then, so had only heard the album a few times.

[Off topic: a couple of decades ago our local regional tv station had a tune they played at ad breaks in movies. It cracked me up, because it was a fun, jazzy tune, but it was Frank Zappa's "I am the slime from the video, oozing along on your living room floor". How appropriate!

It was abruptly changed, and I expect that someone was severely reprimanded for that.]

One of the reasons my musical group chose "Roll & Go" for a name is because of product placement. There are so many shanties that mention us!

So far no one has offered to pay us to promote their special stuff.

Oops, sorry about my blank post.

I think one US singer/songwriter was happy that a song she had written was used to advertise a new candy from an established company. I hope she will always believe that she struck a good deal with them. I saw her twice after the company started using her song, and she said it was a good thing, but after about two years they stopped using her song.

Max has diverted a bit from advertising in his post above, but I take his point. But then where does one draw the line? Pavarotti's Wld Cp Nessun Dorma was probably good for Puccini's image ~ & record sales of his operas. But is Verdi benefited or otherwise by the habit of football crowds, which started I think with Chelsea & Jose Mourinho, of expressing appreciaition of their managers' achievements by serenading him with his name endlessly repeated to tune of La Donn' E Mobile?

Orange using Vashti Bunyan's Diamond Day not only relaunched her career but revived an entire lost idiom of obscure UK psych-folk for a new generation. What goes around comes around, if only by dint of a more genuine Folk Process than that gibbered over by folk enthusiasts. In other words, it's the same thing, just a different medium, and I know several people who's lives were changed and enriched as a consequence. For example I might mention Charles Webb, who had local girls Camelia turn in a near definitive rendering of Diamond Day at his funeral. Charles being a life-long Folky, I assumed that it had be a cherished favourite since the the dark daze of Witchseason, but he brother told me he'd fallen in love with the song via the Orange add. Does that cheapen it? I think not!

"Mo Ghile Mear" (My Gallant Darling) was sung by Una Palliser in the Specsavers TV ad with the sheep and sheep dog. According to Wikipedia, it was written by Seán Clárach Mac Domhnaill in the 18th century.

Fisherman's Friends have made a couple of TV ads for Young's frozen food, with adaptations of "What shall we do with the drunken sailor" and "When the boat comes in".

A classic of the 1970s was the ad for a choc bar to the tune of Steeleye's version of "Thomas the Rhymer".

I will never forget Barry Dransfield performing this in his best Yorkshire accent - "Naa, naa, na na na na naa, Minty Mint Cracknel!"
Total collapse of audience and artiste.

He actually did go on a bit about Steeleye probably having made loadsamoney out of the rights, but I bet they didn't as the First Law of Folkies does state "Thou shalt not make any serious wonga".

Has anybody mentioned Newcastle Brown Ale (now brewed in Tadcaster or summat) and "Cushy Butterfield"?

Michael, I referred to the World Cup Nessun Dorma thing only to illustrate the fact that if you keep hitting the Great British Public over the head hard and relentlessly with something Good then there's a reasonable chance that they will eventually notice it, and like it. Advertising would do that. The marketing kidz would no doubt select one of the few folk songs that I, personally, detest, but that's just my luck.

"I wonder w how many people go on to get a lasting interest in folk music through encountering it in advertising jingles"

Probably not many but, bearing in mind that acoustic music of any kind - let alone folk music featuring fiddles, accordions or natural voices - is an entirely unfamiliar sound to a lot of the population, anything that primes them for that kind of sound is going to make them a tiny bit more likely to respond positively if they ever hear actual folk music at some point in the future. I didn't much enjoy the folk music I learned at primary school, but I do think it at least familiarised me with the sound of the stuff.

"Bonny Bunch of Cadbury's Roses"

Good one, Al!

A few years ago, Toyota offered my son's band $250,000 to use a song in a commercial. They turned down the offer, because they didn't want to be known as "the band in the commercial" and lose their reputation for artistic integrity. It was their song, so it was their right to turn down the offer.

Folk songs are in the public domain, and I think I like it that way. It does seem a shame when folk songs are used in commercials and such, but at least that helps to keep the songs alive.

Lynx are using Different Drum in their current TV campaign. It's often considered an early example of folk-rock. Written by Mike Nesmith (1966) and recorded by the Stone Poneys (1967), it became Linda Ronstadt's first hit.

Another humor transplant needed.

if you try to be offended all the time, you're very likely, mirabile dictu, to achieve your goal.

The same holds true if you look for humor all the time.

Which is healthier?


Look, I understand the Largo from the New World symphony was used to sell bread.   I love that whole symphony--among a huge array of other music-- but I find advertising using it is funny, not offensive.

The Grand Ole' Opry in Nashville has long used modified lyrics of folk songs as the basis for their entire advertising program. For example, "How Many Biscuits can you Eat" was transformed to advertise a wheat flour (Martha White).

It's also interesting in passing that those who are constantly looking to be offended--on Mudcat, at least-- tend to be atheists, it seems.    Wonder why that is.

Who knows, maybe non-atheists are more stable.

There's more. How much would you like?

On Mudcat, the religious, or at least not stridently atheist, posters seem to exhibit much more tolerance of other views than our illustrious overtly atheist posters. Obviously there are some exceptions.   Amos, atheist I believe, is very reasonable.

Writing jingles to make a living is one thing. I'm against selling one of your songs to be used in a commercial. Or selling your image or your voice. It's ok if it's a small, local business but not a big ass corporation--screw them.

I know that Tom Waits, John Fogerty and Neil Young will not allow corporations to use their songs. Waits even sued some company that hired a sound-a-like to imitate him and he won. GM wanted him to appear for like two seconds in a commercial and offered him some big money and he said no but told them to go ask Bruce Springsteen so they did and Springsteen agreed to it. However, when I was a teen, a small applicance company here in the Detroit area--Highland--used a bit of a Tom Waits song for a radio commercial and verbally thanked him at the end of the commercial for the use of the song and it's what got me interested in Tom Waits. I thought, "Man, that's good stuff!" Been a fan ever since. I know when Waits was working with Primus, they offered him money for his help and he wouldn't take it.

I definitely admire that more than someone selling his or her songs for commercials. Some might say it doesn't matter but it does.
