I seem to remember back in the 80's that "Midnight Rider" was used in a beer commercial. Coors Light, I think. Anyone else remember that?

You'd think Greyhound would've picked up Ramblin' Man, but maybe birthin' babies wasn't the image they were going for. But seriously, our peeps are counting on us here...

Jessica was in some picnic-y ads for Publix a few years ago. It was also in Field of Dreams and 94's Lassie movie(ok, I cheated on the last 2).

The English show Top Gear uses Jessica as their theme. They also on one episode recorded different car exhaust sounds into a synth and played Jessica's melody using the exhaust sounds (didn't quite work).

Could swear "End of the Line" is played in "The Perfect Storm." I can also recall ABB being played on the jukebox in more than one episode of The Sopranos.

If it matters but can't document it, Jessica has been used as backgound music on the ski slopes on ABC Wide World of Sports for a freestyle competition.

Anyone know anything a character named Lolo in "Being There" (1979)? played by actor Oteil Burbridge?

Movie database lists the actor as the ABB's Oteil Burbridge.

I recall an episode of ER when George Clooney was still in the show where they went to visit his dying father and Pony Boy was played. Anyone else?

Denza, Was that a database you used or just your amazing memory?

Jessica - used for Buick commercials
Pony Boy and Queen of Hearts were played on that E.R. episode

There was also a not so great movie with a GREAT soundtrack that included Whipping Post and one other ABB song about a love triangle in a small town between 2 locals (Guy may have been played by Axl Rose) and another guy who is the "Bad Boy" returned to town and to steal his old girl back from the Axl character. Great Music, prety good cast and not so great a movie.
