Yeah, it's one of the things that got discussed in Junior High after they had all the girls leave the room.

I've been catching a new ad on Youtube for Groupon lately, and its jingle is so awful I can't wait to click away whenever it comes on.

In what little of it I've been subjected to, the singer seems to be pretty much alternating between two notes, and the lyrics don't even seem to fit the chosen tune - she seems to be rushing to finish each line in time with the music.

Great name, but one we'll never hear on any ad.

This reminds me- there was a trend (that fortunately seems to be fading, though maybe i just haven't been catching enough commercials) of having commercial singers who just sounded really blase and flat. I guess it was trying to convey a "carefree," chill maybe-sorta-hipsterish vibe to the product, but the sound of these breathy, bored-sounding women made me leap for the remote every time.

(I can't recall an instance of it being a man singing, only women)

There used to be a radio spot for Service Merchandise (a now-defunct department store) that used a cut-rate Natalie Merchant soundalike. Drove me crazy. The ads stopped when the store went out of business shortly thereafter.
