The article comments on the musical commercial "Love Songs." The 60-second "Love Songs," with music by John Ferreira and produced by Genuine Music, is a dynamic, guitar-driven, vocal-effected homage to 1970s rock that struck a cultural chord. Its opening line plays to multiple fantasies that seize beer-drinking young men, but it's the song itself, and the sound of the track, that fueled the appeal. After the commercial was aired, the Genuine Website registered more than 400,000 hits, many asking how they could buy the song.
