I heard an interview once with an advertising drone who explained that whatever music we listened to in our first car or when we first started driving, that is what we will love for life. Which at first seems silly, but the more you ponder it, the more likely it seems.

Just think about the recent rash of car commercials featuring the Folk Implosion, Jesus Jones, the Breeders, the Smiths and the like... that's the generation that they're going after right now.

Just an added spin on the ol' nostalgia. Which partially explains this pseudo-myth. Sorta.

Personally, I can't wait to see when Britney and her ilk will be hawking subcompacts. Actually, I can.
