ON THE SPOT Cool Songs From Commercials

A middle-aged couple revisit the carefree romance of their youth on a Holland America cruise as IVY soothingly promise that ''we can start over again'' at the ''Edge of the Ocean.''

Even a big, boxy auto like Mitsubishi's Endeavor can seem sleek and sexy with the tight rap beats of OVERSEER's ''Horn Dog'' behind it.

AT&T's mLife claims credit for uniting a lad and lass on a bus, but fans of KINGS OF CONVENIENCE know the real deal maker is the twee ''Toxic Girl.''

If you were listening to the high-voltage ''Street Survivor'' by Helsinki rockers the FLAMING SIDEBURNS, you'd be maneuvering that Toyota Camry with a stunt driver's fearlessness too.
