    that bloody downtempo riff off the muller light advert. sounds like a barry white slow funky cut. GET OUT OF MY HEAD!

    same for that nick kershaw record that witters on about 'grass is always greener'

      Well, before I looked at that website, I would've said it was Womack & Womack's Loe TKO (from the very fine Love Wars LP: Sermad would love it). However, it's claiming that it's Teddy's version, which I don't know as well. I'd have to check my copy for W&W to make sure. Can't be arsed now, though, it's late...

        That website is OK, but they don't always get it spot-on. I once noticed that I'd apparently had one of my tunes on a Vodafone advert, but it was actually for Orange.

          Yeah I'm pretty damn sure it was a cover of Miriam Makeba's 'Pata Pata' on that Flora ad (which I've still only seen once) but that website lists the original. At least it points you in the right direction though.

            i'd always assumed it was a custom recorded rip off of "Love TKO". you know, where they change something by a semi tone or whatever to avoid royallties. doesn't sound exactly like the TP version from memory.

              There's one ad with the shitest get-around-the-royalties-with-a-cheap-knockoff of Daft Punk's 'Around the world' at the moment. I always end up throwing sommet at the telly in disgust!

                what about that terrible version of jb&#39;s &#39;i feel good&#39;? there&#39;s another one that really makes me vomit at the moment... hmmm, will try to remember what it is. think it&#39;s a female vocal track.

                  there was a knock-off of Charles Wright &#39;Express Yourself&#39; a few years ago...

                  they don&#39;t need to change the tune by a semitone or anything - it&#39;s the performance royalties they are avoiding not the publishing royalties

                  what&#39;s the soul-ish female vocal track on the Norwich Union (i think?) advert? sounds familiar

                    It&#39;s quite common for the original artist to do it themselves, especially when it comes to ads that rip off music videos. And seeing as it&#39;s McDonalds, I wouldn&#39;t be surprised if it was Daft Punk... No one is beyond their deep pockets&#33;

                      The worst culprit in the re-make stakes is surely that version of Strawberry Letter 23. Can&#39;t remember the ad, but they&#39;re on a train somewhere.

                      PS It&#39;s definitely not the Womack &amp; Womack version, I just checked it.

                        That&#39;s such an annoying ad, full stop.

                        You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

                          I thought the version of Strawberry Letter 23 was by the Brothers Johnson??

                            I was listening to a Philly compilation the other night, and it&#39;s more or less TP&#39;s version.  I&#39;m not discounting Son of Stan&#39;s theory mind...
