What's That Tune?

We give you the details on the ditties from Ben Lee, The Go! Team, The Flatmates, and Twisted Sister

Tunes from TV commercials

EW names that tune you keep hearing in a commercial

1. KOHL'S
Rocker Ben Lee's '06 ditty ''We're All in This Together'' provides the sweet accompaniment to the store's whimsical, windblown ad — polka dots flying off dresses, kites bobbing in the sky.

2. MITSUBISHI
What better soundtrack to a girls' night out than dance outfit The Go! Team? Their cheerleading, hand-clappy '07 single ''Doing It Right'' propels the drive-time action in this car clip.

3. PAYLESS
In a foot-centric rush of images, the shoe company reaches back to '87 by selling its wares to the strains of rollicking indie-pop song ''Happy All the Time,'' by U.K.'s The Flatmates.

4. WASHINGTON MUTUAL
Twisted Sister's '84 metal anthem ''I Wanna Rock'' leads a balding man to freedom (and sudden hair growth) as he takes off in a convertible, thanks to easy banking.
