What’s That Song? Super Bowl Special
Itâs the day after the Super Bowl, which means that thereâve been a lot of cheers from Chiefs fans and a lot of tears from 49âers fans, but no matter whether your team won or lost, at least youâre still left with the commercials. In the wake of these generally entertaining efforts from advertisers, we wanted to offer up a reminder about three notable tracks from the Rhino catalog which took the spotlight for anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds.
â¢ Ray Charles, âWhatâd I Sayâ (The NFLâs âThe Next 100â): Some would argue that this was actually a commercial, since itâs really just the lead-in to the game, but weâre including it on a technicality because it was just so darned awesome. Seriously, if you tuned in late, youâll want to sit down and watch this intently from start to finish. As for the song, it doesnât get much better than Ray Charles, so it works perfectly.
â¢ Sonny & Cher, âI Got You Babeâ (Jeep): If you donât already know this one from its use in Groundhog Day, then you probably didnât appreciate the commercial very much, since it offers fans of that film a makeshift sequel, including not only Bill Murray but also his brother Brian Doyle Murray as the mayor of Punxsutawney and Stephen Tobolowsky. You know, Ned? Ned Ryerson? Olâ Needlenose Ned? Sure you do. Anyway, this was Sonny and Cherâs signature song, and itâs a classic, so if youâve never actually checked out the album from which it hails (LOOK AT US), it's time you got to know it.
â¢ Twisted Sister, âI Wanna Rockâ (Facebook): Thereâs a whole lot of rock â and rocks, and rocking, and Rocky â in this commercial, so it only stands to reason that youâd use this Twisted Sister classic as the soundtrack.
