The dollar signs floating over the TV screen on the album's front cover tell the story from both ends of this release. Subtitled "Songs From Commercials," these tunes have found either a new life or long-delayed initial popularity by providing the soundtracks to second ads on television. Those who don't want, can't find, or just won't have the patience to sit through entire albums from some of the more obscure artists here, such as Groove Armada , Badly Drawn Boy , the Red House Painters , or Nick Drake , can get a quick fix of the one song that was licensed for the spot and call it a day. For anyone else, this is a bewildering assortment of wildly eclectic acts that range from '70s techno oddities like Trio 's overexposed ditty "Da Da Da" to Dusty Springfield 's classic version of "The Look of Love" to the pure punk-pop of the Buzzcocks ' "What Do I Get" and even T. Rex 's "20th Century Boy. So unless the record store clerk is particularly savvy, finding this album for anyone but the established music fan will be difficult. Interestingly, both Sting a Universal artist and Moby , the two most obvious musicians who licensed their music for shilling products, are absent here.

In , you are likely to see video compilations for sale, like the Midnight Special box sets than ones filled with music you could just as easily download for cheaper, or - gasp - for free. And once you found those songs, you can burn them to your own disc, and leave out songs you don't want, like possibly John Waite's "Missing You" if it bothers you or reminds you too much of Spring Break ' Rocks Off remembers staying up late, as the paid-programming ads took over network television to watch just the infomercials for some of these compilations, but we never ordered one of them. Still when we see them in pawn shops and thrift stores we always buy them.
