Actually, one of my first blog posts, The '60s Live Forever in Ads in Nov. 2010, focused on this very phenomenon. But there's lots more to report on since then.
An ad for the 2014 Chevy Impala features Frank Sinatra's 1964 song "Fly Me to the Moon."
Stevie Wonder's 1972 tune "Superstition" provides the background music for a Bud Light commercial.
Target went back even further, to 1958 and Connie Francis singing "Fallin'" for an ad about a line of clothes.
AT&T rounded up several oldies, from John Denver to Creedence Clearwater Revival for their Road Music 4G ad.
Or, how about this R-rated ad for Carl's Junior and Hardee's charboiled fish sandwich with Bobby Darin singing his 1959 version of "Beyond the Sea" ... and, oh yeah, featuring supermodel Nina Agdal.
Mercedes Benz used the Rolling Stones "Sympathy for the Devil" in its 2013 Superbowl ad.
And then there's this ad, for the Budweiser Clydesdales, which ran during the 2013 Superbowl. I'm sure you'll recognize Stevie Nicks and her 1975 hit "Landslide."
