From time to time I come across music that I find truly unbearable. It doesn't happen very often but when it does it hits a raw nerve. More often it is a piece of music that will accompany a television advert. In other words a piece of music that arrives uninvited into my home. In this, a first of a new series I will unveil some crimes against music in this particular medium.
This current advert from Honda is a prime example. It's not hard to see what the problem is here. Anyone who has ears would surely have to agree. Tedious in the extreme are the annoying childish girly vocals that continue in same offensive manner for a full minute. I detest this piece of music so much, that if I actually had a driving license and road tested the "Honda Insight" to discover that it was the most capable of cars, and that it came at a very reasonable price. I wouldn't buy it out of principle simply because of the vulgar musical content of the advert. And I would probably drive it into a wall.
The pair responsible for this musical abomination are Berend Dubbe and Gwen Thomas. Who ever they are, may they stay away from dark alleys.
Here is the offensive item in question.
