Get out of my brain!

If you own a television, you've probably heard the annoying song that accompanies that ubiquitous Chase credit card commercial. Maybe I watch too much TV, but it seems to be airing on a continuous loop, particularly during sporting events:

I'm 22 for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars


The lyrics are cheesy enough, but that cloying, achy falsetto is brutal. After some research, I've identified the musical offenders: Five for Fighting. The song: 100 Years. I know nothing about this band, but, according to, customers who bought their album also purchased Maroon 5, Rob Thomas and John Mayer.

Case closed: they suck.

God save us from the sensitive balladeer!


  1. That's funny. I like Five For Fighting.

    And, yes. I am ashamed...

  2. I thought for sure it was Dave Mathews, another with an irritating falsetto.

  3. Hey, buddy! Watch what you say about Dave Matthews... He's 'da man'...

    And there's no way Dave would be caught in a gay-looking scarf like that (not that there's anything wrong with that...).

  4. I always thought it was Dave Matthews, too.

    It still is a way better jingle than the one for Free Credit Report dot com.

    But, yes, the song sucks.


  5. good to see a blog dealing with credit card issues. Credit cards are a necessity in Western Life. Sadly they can be one of our biggest liabilities. I have a site dealing with credit card debt solutions. You might like to take a look
