Off the beaten track: Media commercials and melodius music

Today, commercials occupy a lot of space in our media programmes (from BBC World to local FM channels).  There is a commercial from Aircel in Polimer TV which comes with background music which is exactly like the one used in `What a wonderful world', sung by the legendary Afro-American singer Louis Armstrong (1901-1971) in 1970. (I liked the song not only for its melodious music but also for its value based lyrics). I tried to give a link to the commercial in this post, but couldn't. I'll try to do it when I  find time. Some commercials are like `oases' in a vast desert of `noise'.
