Portugal. The Man is Still Feeling It

The most Shazam’d songs of the week: August 7 – August 13

Each week, Clio highlights the top ten Shazam’d songs from commercials, showcasing the power of pairing the right tune with the right ad.

For the third week in a row, Portugal. The Man’s “Feel It Still” remains in the top spot by a landslide, but Walmart is really taking over this week’s list with four of its music-focused spots in the top ten. Only two newcomers (Volkswagen and Macy’s) have broken the top ten this week, with veterans Vitaminwater, Pepsi, State Farm, Jeep, and of course, Walmart continuing to own the chart each week. From classic beats to newer sounds, this week’s Shazam chart has it all.

 

1) Vitaminwater “Drink Outside the Lines”

Agency: Ogilvy

Track: “Feel It Still” by Portugal. The Man

Portugal. The Man’s “Feel It Still” continues to blow its competition out of the water with over 22,000 Shazams, this week alone – that’s nearly 19,000 more hits than the number two spot.

2) Volkswagen “The New King”

Agency: DDB

Track: “Livin’ Thing” by Electric Light Orchestra

Not even a giant blow up version of King Kong in NYC could distract from Electric Light Orchestra’s “Livin’ Thing.” It’s the perfect driving song, mixing an upbeat sound with a soft and slow vibe.

8) State Farm “Backstory: Truck”

Agency: DDB

Track: “Break My Bones” by John Taylor

Matching a story-focused spot with a story-focused song is never an easy task, but John Taylor’s “Break My Bones” matches perfectly with State Farm’s “Backstory: Truck,” at least among Shazamers.
