Can a commercial make you buy a car? Maybe not, but it will make you notice! The new commercial for the Lincoln MKZ is very well put together with excellent visuals and a song to match. The girl singing this catchy song is part of the band “The Shiny Toy Guns”. This song is a cover of Peter Schilling’s 1980s “Major Tom” which was a retelling of David Bowie’s 1969 “Space Oddity.”
The single Major Tom was released in May 5, 2009 and has been on the Billboard Top 100 single sales chart and reached #2 on Amazon.
