The ‘Journey’ diamond advert
The DeBeers family again try to sell you everlasting love in the form of a rock, actually several in a (IMO) not particularly pretty setting. But I love the music in it — ‘What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?’ sung by either Dusty Springfield or Sarah Vaughan and covered by Barbra Streisand and Alison Moyet. This is pop for grown-ups.
