Commercialism and Coldplay

Greetings fellow fans and aficionados!!!

I have been struggling with some questions as of late. If the info I have gleaned from the "official" Coldplay website states that the band will never compromise themselves by lending their music to advertisements, then please explain why we hear "Clocks" as the theme of the recent HBO

campaign? Why has their music appeared in the background of various

TV shows?

I am studying to be a paralegal (legal assistant) and have a great interest in intellectual property law, so the use of music, thought and ideas in a commercial arena intrigues me. Please enlighten me, if you can, how these snipets of songs end up on the airwaves without the so-called blessing and personal enrichment of one of my favorite bands.

 

P.S. I saw them on 1/31/03 and can say that I preferred their show last year at the Bronco Bowl.

Just in case you still don't know HBO is a channel, like the BBC or CNN, but they show specially movies......

 

Welcome to the board!

 

not just movies....they've got great shows on that channel, such as The Sopranos, Six Feet Under and my personal fave SEX AND THE CITY!!!! :D

I also heard Clocks on a recent episode of ER... but I can't complain... it fit really beautifully.

 

Really?? :-o Wow....that's weird... :?

 

yep... Dr. Romano was standing at the top of the roof contemplating suicide (because he lost his arm in an accident and can't work anymore), but he decides against it and just stares off the roof in sadness. Clocks is playing as he looks out over the edge.
