There are certain pieces of classical music I cannot hear without immediately thinking of the product it was used to advertise.

It's maddening that advertisers can be allowed to destroy culture like that.




I found it astonishing that the song "Look What They've Done to My Song, Ma" (which is seemingly about corruption of art) was later licensed for commercials for oatmeal and a hotel chain... complete with modified lyrics!
