This CSX sparkplug commercial has taught me that sparkplugs make things go. You guys, I just learned something. I really don’t know much about transportation or engineering. I know sparkplugs exist. And that is the end of my knowledge. I suppose I should mention here that for the past ten years or so I have lived in larger cities where I rely on things like public transportation and my feet to get me from place to place. I understand from this commercial that sparkplugs are used in my public transportation, but what I am saying is that you don’t have to worry, I am not on the road driving so you don’t have to say, this girl doesn’t know what sparkplugs are? Run for your lives!
You don’t have to run for your lives. Everyone calm down now OK. Keep calm and robot on. That’s a new saying. I just made that up. Right now. You guys… I am just so creative it’s awesome.
I am told that the song you are hearing in this CSX sparkplug commercial is No New Tale to Tell off the album Earth, Sun, Moon by Love and Rockets but I kind of don’t believe that it’s true. The guitar section is the same, but there is no na na na which is so prominent in the commercial. I have listened to about ten different covers of the song so I am still trying to track down whether this is a cover by a completely different band or whether the commercial studio just hired someone to na na na over the actual song and when I figure this out, I will tell you or if you figure it out, you tell me. Team work: Tahnee likes it.
Love and Rockets was an 80s band formed in merry old England and fused underground rock with elements of pop to create an early catalyst for alternative or college rock.In 1999 they broke up but played Strummerville in 2007 and Coachelle and Lollapallooza in 2008. In 2009 a tribute album was released featuring some of your favorite artists such as The Flaming Lips and Better Than Ezra. God I used to love them. I remember a car ride to Florida from Massachusetts with my family at some point in the early 90s where I just sat in the back and listened to Better Than Ezra over and over and over again. Ah youth.
