The Songs We Sing

Recently, I noticed a commercial with a woman that was using the song, “Hot Child in the City.”  I don't care what Nick Gilder says, but the core of the song is about a hooker.

Now, I'm not railing against people who choose the career path of prostitution, but I am railing the producers of commercials who make song choices without much forethought. I've done it before with a Mercury Milan commercial.  And I love Morningwood (the band), but why would you pick a song where the main theme is the band (Morningwood) spelling out M-O-R-N-I-N-G-W-O-O-D repeatedly.

Who knows, maybe this just keeps proving that we can so easily be lost on the groove, we forget where the lyrics are going.
