TV spots are gold for songs no one knows

Was browsing iTunes (lots of great new stuff!) and I went into the electronic genre page. The top two songs? The first is "Technologic," the song in the iPod spots, and the second is Paul Oakenfold's "Starry Eyed Surprise," which is in the Coke "roller girl" spot. That second one is from 2002!

Write a catchy song, get it into a TV spot, people will buy it. Look what Mitsubishi did for Dirty Vegas two years ago.

I'm pretty sure #3's ("I Like to Move It") popularity is due to its featuring in Madagascar. Great movie, BTW.

I know that song from DDR, actually.

My husband has just uploaded another of his electronic creations on Soundclick.com, although I suspect this one is a little to "mellow" for your tastes. The new one is called Angel Voices.
