From the founder of Sounds-Familiar TV Advert Music:
Sounds-Familiar (TV Advert Music) started with humble beginnings back in 1998. I had fond memories of the great TV adverts of the 80’s such as Levi’s and Guinness offering us some wonderfully memorable ads. They were largely made memorable by their cleverly chosen music, some of which were not instantly identifiable. This inspired me to start a website to help viewers identify the music played during TV advertisements.
The site rapidly grew from strength to strength throughout the noughties with more help coming on-board along the way. The Sounds-Familiar team are now pleased to say that despite respectable competition, we currently still have one of the most comprehensive TV advert music databases on the internet featuring everything from old classics to funny parodies and the latest hot ads to hit your television screens.
We are always adding new content and search tools to the site to help visitors find what they want. The site also provides for those visitors who want a place to simply have a nose around and watch some classic or funny TV ads.
In early 2016, Sounds-Familiar had a huge overhaul with an all new responsive layout. This brought with it a mobile and tablet friendly site with countless new features and content. The migration process completed in the spring.
The site was also no longer restricted to just UK TV ads but adverts in the US and Europe too. The old site was eventually made redundant in the summer of 2016. Visitor numbers are very high but we make sure our servers are more than up to the job, most especially around the hype of Christmas TV advert season!
How to use Sounds-Familiar to find TV advert music tracks
