The Very Best TV Ad Songs

Preview by Jack Foley

ON April 22, 2013, Sony Music will release a spectacular new compilation featuring some of the most recognisable tracks from TV adverts. Entitled The Very Best of TV Ad Songs, the 2CD compilation features the tracks that are gripping the nation as part of the soundtrack to our lives.

Hit after hit featured on The Very Best of TV Ad Songs has taken on a new dimension, beyond its original success and often re-entered the UK single charts, like Fleetwood Mac’s Everywhere from Three Mobile’s current advert which shot back to No.15.

Notably four of the featured tracks were specially commissioned covers for John Lewis’ famed adverts. Paloma Faith’s Never Tear Us Apart, Fyfe Dangerfield’s She’s Always A Woman, Ellie Goulding’s 2012 hit version of Elton John’s Your Song and the beautifully unusual cover of The Smith’s Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want by Slow Moving Mille all had a major impact on the UK singles chart.

From Boston’s More Than A Feeling for Barclaycard and Baccara’s Yes Sir, I Can Boogie for British Airways to Primal Scream’s Movin’ On Up for Kellogg’s Cornflakes and Lana Del Rey’s cover of Blue Velvet for H&M, The Very Best of TV Ad Songs is a must have collection to finally answer that age old question: Where do I recognise that song from?

The Very Best of TV Ad Songs is released on April 22, 2013 through Sony Music.
