Blackcat2 Folk music is definitely on the way back (41) RE: BS: Folk music is definately on the way back 08 Feb 00


Who cares if Folk Music is on its way back? The point is that it never had died out. And because of the Internet it is more available to those who are interested than ever before.

I personally find any music that is used for advertisment that wasn't written specifically for the ad to be objectionable. But it does show what Madison Ave thinks will sell things. Last year a car commercial used an Ozzy Osbourne song as its theme - imagine that back when the song was released!

Here's an idea for a thread: match the song (folk & other) with the product it could sell. There's tons of obvious ones but what about the obscure? Certainly Mudcat is the place for the obscure . . .
