What does capitalism sound like? Maybe like the cash register at the beginning of Pink Floyd's song "Money"? Or maybe like the sound of Led Zeppelin cranking up as a Cadillac zooms across your screen. Whatever the tune, the line between popular songs and commercial songs has blurred as music has become a powerful tool in selling products to a mass audience.
Join Reason.tv's own Kennedy for a lively and fun walk through the history of jingles, earworms, and great songs at a live taping with UCLA ethnomusicologist Tim Taylor as they chat about his new book, The Sounds of Capitalism: Advertising, Music, and the Conquest of Culture.
