Music to My Eyes XXVII

Proof positive that hearing music on the TV can lead to record sales. American Movie Classics has been using a snippet of Sam Phillips' song "All Night" in adverts for its Movies at 8. The sheer infectiousness of the song -- it's been stuck in my head for weeks -- finally inspired me to snag her album "A Boot and a Shoe" today. It's not as neat as hearing Papas Fritas in a Dentyne Ice commercial, but it's pretty darn cool. Musicians, license your music to the TV! TV producers, listen to more new music! You can help each other.
