Some adverts can really make a song and some songs can really make an advert.
We have taken the top 5 adverts which used a soundtrack that got people talking. So many times we get asked 'what song is in the advert?' which shows just how important the soundtrack is.
From the the Levis advert in the 1990's which made the band Smoke City famous, to the almighty 'Here Comes the Girls' by Ernie K Doe which was covered by Sugarbabes last year, we really have some great stuff!
1. Famous Sony Bravia 'Balls' advert from 2005. Music by Jose Gonzales with the track ‘heartbeats’ which made him a house-hold name.
2. Lynx 'Pulse' advert from 2003. Music by Oliver Cheatham Feat. Room 5 with the track ‘Make Luv’ which made it into the charts after being used for this advert.
3. Boots 'Here Come The Girls' advert from 2007. Music by Ernie K Doe with ‘Here Come The Girls’. This track was later covered by Sugarbabes and they released it as a single.
4. T-Mobile ‘Baby Face’ advert from 2002. Music by Röyksopp with the track 'So Easy'. After this advert was released, their career really took off and they became popular in the UK.
