I was about to defend snickers but then Ulti started being a shill for the Mars Corporation and quoting their commercials verbatim. The best chocolate/candy bar is Daim.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Shilling for candy companies makes me so mad I start throwing things.  Kinda like this!

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Who's to say the marketing company didn't pay the recording studio to produce a hit song they would later co-opt to their product?

*cough*Chris Brown Forever and Doublemint gum *cough*

Edit: relevant link https://www.wsj.com/articles/SB121721123435289073, your song might be too old but eh, it's all ****ed

I'm glad at least the rp stuff is still there, we put a lot of work into those.  Don't taunt the dynamite monkey any further into deleting what's left

Mrmmm... I'd say we put a lot of work into a lot of what he decided we no longer deserved

Hey Inkling I'll send you a picture of a twix bar if you delete this thread

I am insulted.  I'm disgusted that you think I'd be swayed by such a suggestion.

It'd take a picture of at least five twix bars.

well, I'm not made of stone

I really hate the trend of TV programmes and films using pop-songs as incidental music instead of having their own soundtrack.

A wise Surface to Air Missile once said about marrying 9 year olds in Saudi Arabia "Its pretty hard to tell if a 9 year old is going to be hot when she grows up, kids change a lot, usually, seems like a bad system. That cute little nine year old you married could end being a fat, zitty teenager."

I don't mind it. It's cheaper/easier to just pay for royalties for an existing song than to get an in-house musician, and often helps promote small time musicians to a larger audience. Or, if you take Westworld's or Black Mirror's example, helps create a sense of familiarity that is otherwise impossible with an OST.

The problem is that most of the time they're wispy hipster acoustic covers of The Smiths or something.

It works if there's an emotional connection established with the actual show or movie.

Obviously it works just great in Guardians of the Galaxy. 80s pop fits the tone of the movie perfectly and it's directly connected with the main character.


In the case of Westworld if I recall all the pop music featured is Scott Bradlee style low-fi covers using period instruments, which means someone had to make the effort to arrange and record those covers and it adds to the anachronistic themes in the show.

The problem is laziness, like it's always been.  :P
