Songs With Catchy Hooks From Recent TV Commercial Ads

Seems that lately there have been a plethora of lesser known or non-mainstream songs as well as artists being used in television advertising commercials that have a catchy hook or melody that I just can’t get out of my head. Some of these remind me of throw-back sounds reminiscent of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s while others have a very modern vibe that is very addictive. I find myself searching for info on Google as well as YouTube for the titles, artists and in some cases, lyrics.

So, with that being said, I present to you a few of my favorite memorable TV commercials featuring these addictive, catchy or simply irresistible songs in video format from YouTube. In a couple of cases, I also added lyric videos with audio from the original TV ad that others posted to YouTube who obviously had the same affection for them that I did. Hope you find these enjoyable and/or memorable as I did and please feel free to comment below. I also included a few of the classics from years gone by that you’re sure to remember if you’re old enough. To the younger viewers, discover some of the best and most popular advertisements in pop culture history.

I will more than likely be adding to this list as time goes on and new television ads with catchy lyrics or sounds pop up on the small screen. ENJOY 🙂

  2. Hi,
    I just heard a song on a Movado watch commercial, I think for their new watch, “Sapphire Synergy”. I can’t find any info on the Internet about it and I believe it’s a brand new commercial, not the Katie Cole song they used in previous ads. Any thouhts how I can find out who the artist and what the song is?

    Just been updated once again with more catchy TV commercials, some newer, some older ones that I left out last year. Enjoy once again!

  4. Did anyone notice the “red bull” cooler in the 1978 Lowenbrau commercial? I didn’t know redbull was that old.
