Songs from the Eighties That Have Been In Commercials, Products Beginning with W
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.

This used the FTD ad in this commercial. This ad aired in Sussex County.
Waterpic, using Human League's, "Don't You Want Me Baby?"
People in different rooms in an apartment were taking a shower. As the time changes to "7:00", the song starts playing and the people begin singing it. Then it continues with a woman singing, "Don't You Want Me Baby? Don't you want me..." then all the people in the rooms screaming singing "OOOOHHHHHHH!!!!" and the song stops.

Good song, went with the stuck in my head..though the candy bar wasn't that great.
