So there I was, watching the latest episode of The Flash on The CW’s website and I see a commercial that used the song All You Need is Love.
Just days after the release of the amazing Get Back documentary I hear The Beatles in a friggin’ commercial.
You suck, Michael Jackson.
The story as I remember it is that during the dark days of Jackson and Paul McCartney writing songs together, Jackson asked Paul for financial advice and Paul suggested focusing on music publishing. Not long after, Jackson bought the publishing rights to The Beatles’ catalog. Not long after that, Revolution ended up in a commercial and the world has pretty much sucked ever since.
So I just saw All You Need is Love in a commercial and it’s Michael friggin’ Jackson’s fault. Asshole.
