thinking about getting that damn Leona Lewis song on Itunes...

#1 Edited by Raven_Sword (3447 posts) -

Im the kind of guy that gets songs stuck in his head easily, and if I like it, I get it on itunes. And after hearing that GOD DAMN SONG so many times on that FF 13 360 TV ad, im seriously starting to gain a liking to it and am condering using my last 1.29 on itunes to get it. My questions are:  
 
A. have you ever learned of a new song that you ended up liking because you heard it on a TV ad or something, and that was your first Exposure to it.  
 
B. Am I a bad person for doing this?  
 
BTW: for those who dont know what the song is, this is it

I reluctantly like those commercials too.  That song is so fucking catchy.  It was on like 5 times during those UFC fights last night.

Dude, I totally can sympathize with this.  The song is my newest guilty pleasure.  Yes, this means Lady Gaga has been de-throned for me (for the moment).

dude. I got it because of the trailer. am I a bad person? :(

I've got that damn song in my head, too. Nothing like spending 2 hours going through Chapter 6 and hearing that song the whole time. At least it's better than Chapter 5's. 
 
Speaking of songs I got into via T.V. commercials, She's Got Me Dancing by Tommy Sparks is a recent discovery. It's pretty good, actually. I'd rather have that song as FFXIII's background music. It was featured in ads for the Sony EyePet and iPhone.

This song sucks balls.
 
Edit: This has happened to me, though, but with the Kingdom Hearts one, and I don't even like Kingdom Hearts.

Yeah I like that song too, especially since I saw it so many times in the FFXIII commercials and that awesome trailer, it's a good pop song
 
You should just get it

@Raven_Sword: Its not a bad song. And the people who were complaining about its inclusion in the western versions of FF13 need to listen the the original theme some more; its ultra-generic jpop and not that great. My Hands is a big improvement and still sounds like a Final Fantasy song to me. Doesnt it remind anyone else of the english version of 1000 Words?

I really hate those commercials because I have no idea who they're supposed to appeal to. Leona Lewis appeals to 12-year old girls who hate games, and Final Fantasy XIII appeals to nerds. 
But still, the only song I can remember that I bought after hearing it from a commercial/TV Show was "Eyes" by Rogue Wave, which was on at the end of the Heroes Pilot. 
And B, yes, you would be a bad person for doing this.

Why the sad face Brad? Are you that drained from FFXIII?

I used to listen to that for hours everyday. She also sings the avatar theme song.

Ive got that and both Kingdom Hearts songs on my Zune on my playlist that I just set on shuffle and play over and over and over and over again...
