Cadillac ads music -- The Pogues join Iggy Pop

    I've got to admit I like their taste. Yeah, they ran Zep's "Rock and Roll" into the ground, but lately they've had two Iggy Pop songs ("Here Comes Success" and that "Punk Rocker" collaboration thing), and during the Oscars I heard the Pogues' "Sunny Side of the Street."

    This may not be hip to the youngsters around here, but it's safe to say that we of a certain age never expected Iggy or Shane MacGowan to ever be shilling for Cadillac.

    Of course, if they're going to use the Pogues, they probably should put up an Escalade ad with the line from "Fairytale of New York" -- "...they've got cars big as bars...."

    Cadillac replaced its ad agency within the past year, hence the change of music. It's also spent the past few years becoming relevant again, which seemed unfathomable in, say, the 1980s.

    Better than Toyota's unending use of "It keeps you ruuunnnin! Yeah, it keeps you runnin!" It's on almost every break. About ready to slit my wrists.

    Can anyone tell me who did the jazz stuff Jaguar used a couple of years ago? Low, throbbing, quiet bass followed by three sharp brass notes then kickin' drums. It's been bugging me for a long time ...
