These are two of my favorite Publix commercials. My all time favorite is the Last Train Home commercial which they showed for many years in the 1980s and 190s. While it reminds me of that time in my life now, I remember loving it when it was new.
The music in Last Train Home is from Still Life (Talking) an album by Pat Metheny Group, released in 1987. This Publix commercial ran from 1987 to 1996.
To this day, when Pat Metheny is performing, he’ll refer to the song as, “The Publix song.”
And this year, I love this one below, which I think is from 2015, but they’ve been showing it a lot this year. Sorry about the Lovely Legs commercial on top of it, guess they feel they can steal the Publix commercials and make them theirs.
I used to play this song every September 30, so here it is – Wake Me Up When September Ends by Green Day. The actual song starts at about 1:50 min.
Ironically, or maybe not, YouTube knew that I love the video and song below, Time to Say Goodbye by Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli. They had it next to the Green Day video.
And two more versions. All incredible.
I saw this on the Classic FM website. A hymn was discovered on a clay tablet in Ugarit, now part of Syria, and is dedicated the Hurrians’ goddess of the orchards Nikkal. This is the oldest melody in existence. It is over 3400 years old. You can listen to it right here. More on this find at Classic FM.
