Sound Familiar?

I was reading a play-by-play blog of the 48th Annual Grammy Awards, and the author made a comment about the advertisements:

My favorite so far was the GM ad using Everclear's "AM Radio" (a '70s nostalgia piece which samples from Jean Knight's "Mr. Big Stuff") to have a look back at 8-track tapes and soul classics.

You can give a listen if you want to compare
