Songs from the Eighties That Have Been In Commercials, Products Beginning with T
Well, it was bound to happen, and it has been happening now for a while, Commercials bleeding the memory of the eighties, for music. The first one I remember is "Like A Rock" and then "Born in the USA." Now it's food items. What's next? I'd love to hear your recomendations. Please limit it to TELEVISION Commercials though. Radio stations usually mix in background music with spoken ads by the DJ's and the music tends to be used in both radio and television versions of most Commercials eventually.

T-Mobile, using Def Leppard's, "Pour Some Sugar on Me"
A couple is listening to the song in their truck, but they can't figure out the lyrics. Just then, the company spokeswoman stops the action and hands the woman a celular phone. She uses it to call a library and find out the correct lyrics.
T.G.I. Friday's, using The Romantics's, "What I Like About You"
Can we get something more original?
TGI Friday's, using Scorpions's, "Rock You Like a Hurricane"
Used to promote a sizzling Chicken Shrimp Platter.
Taco Bell, using I Melt with You's, "Modern English"
Used to promote a Cheesy Melt. I remember another chain using I Melt with You (Burger King?) several years ago.
Taco Bell, using The Knacks's, "My Sharona"
It was sort of clever. They said "My chalupa!" instead of "MY Sharona!"
Taco Bell, using Spandau Ballet's, "True"
Used to promote a Crunch Wrap. Aired during Super Bowl XL.
Target, using Men Without Hats's, "Pop Goes The World"
You got the group right, but the wrong song. It was "Pop Goes The World".

Cool song re-done by a studio band
Target, using Men Without Hats's, "Safety Dance"
In the commercial, they are selling Spongebob clothing, but use this song and intertwine it with Spongebob lyrics. I find it to be kind of interesting.

Alright commercial.. Just an advertisment for Target stores.. Nothing fancy. I like the song though.. Takes me back to the good old days..

Tel-Us cellphones, using Nena's, "99 Luftballons"
Promoting cellphones that could take pictures of red balloons, one lifting a little piglet. Wwhat can I say? It got my attention.
Telecom USA, using Tears For Fears's, "Everybody Wants To Rule The World"
10-10-987. Careless of the company to use the song without permission. It seems wrong to include such a brilliant tune in this sort of commercial.
Telus(Canada), using Nena's, "99 LuftBalloons"
Its a really cute commercial with little pigs riding under red balloons.
Time Warner Cable, using Devo's, "Whip It"
Just butchered this song with horrible new lyrics!
Toyota, using Dire Straits's, ""Money For Nothing""
"I want my M.P.G."?!?! - easily the WORST parody for a commercial in TV history. I cringe every time I hear it! Please make it stop.....
Toyota, using The Fixx's, "Saved by Zero"
The people at Toyota had no idea what the name of the song was,...the folks at the bank told me and said they could "fixx" up my payments for me. I just wish my credit cards had 0% financing.

In a Toyota Corolla Mexican ad appeared that song.
Toyota, using The Buzzcocks's, "What Do I Get?"
Was used for ads for their SUV. It was filmed at high speed.

It's kinda cute...oranges dancing around to the "Oh Mickey you're so fine you're so fine you blow my mind HEY MICKEY!" part...except um..not all that relevent to selling orange juice..but at least it's the original track
Tropicana Pure Premium, using Diana Ross's, "I'm Coming Out"
