Meg Hemphill is a Los Angeles-based lifestyle writer who covers the good life: style, food, automotive, travel and entertainment. When it comes to cars, it is less about the nuts and bolts and more about the aesthetic, luxury and occasional practicality. A former editor at InStyle, she writes for the Huffington Post and a variety of other publications.


For the new Lexus IS commercial, the car actually creates the music by beating drums. From a humorous rap to a sweet love tune, the music can set the tone for a car's message, making the song worth the research and expense of using a quality musician or band. But it can also leave you wondering, what was that song? Here are five notable ads with tunes that'll make you stop and listen.

The Car: Ford Mustang

The Commercial: The 2011 drives powerfully through a city, while messages of 305-hp, V6 and 31 mpg flash onscreen and the pulsating guitar adds to the energy.

The Artist: Band of Skulls

The Song: Light of the Morning

The Car: Toyota Sienna

The Commercial: That slightly annoying mom from the mini van commercials joins her onscreen husband for a rap video. Props to the dad when he clears the tea party table. And mom? She's redeemed herself.

The Song: Swagger Wagon

The Band: The Sienna Family/Black Iris Music

The Car: Subaru Outback

The Commercial: A charming honeymoon for the modern day bohemian couple that loves the outdoors, accompanied by a perfectly sweet song. You'll be smiling by the end.

The Song: Here Comes the Sun Again

The Band: M. Ward

The Car: Volkswagen Jetta

The Commercial: Ah, what one will do to save money for something he wants. That's the exact premise here: a guy working odd jobs to save for the 2011 Jetta. The twangy, hard-on-his-luck cowboy ditty encapsulates his mission perfectly.

The Song: Another Day, Another Dollar

The Band: Wynn Stewart

The Car: Kia Soul

The Commercial: There's something about hamsters rapping that's just kinda funny. The Soul is aimed at a younger market, and apparently hamsters resonate well with a younger demographic.

The Song: The Choice is Yours

The Band: Black Sheep
