Sometimes I wonder if certain pop songs were actually written with the intention of whoring them out to advertising agencies for use in commercials or radio ads.
A great example of this is the song “The Heat Is On” by Glenn Fry of the Eagles. I think I’ve heard this song in approximately seven hundred thousand different commercials on the radio - usually for some kind of special sale at a car dealership, or great deals on steaks for the barbecue season, or some shit like that. Even by the most objective standards possible, it is a rather mediocre song that is not musically interesting or deep, and it actually sounds as if it was specifically written as an advertising jingle.
There are so many other examples of this but this one is the only one I can think of off the top of my head.
