A music for Titans

India's leading watch manufacturer is famous for its ads' theme music. As kids, most of us didn't know that it borrows from Mozart's famous Symphony No. 25 in G minor.

Their early advertisements were splendid, touching, and we waited for the 'Titan music' to play. My friends and I would hum the tune occasionally.

This post features the various Titan ads, and how well they have employed the music.

But before that I'd like to start with Beethoven's music featuring in the ad for a game:

Gears of War 2
-- I have no idea about the game. I heard of it when I overheard a boy telling his friend about this game's great theme music. Then he started humming it. I came back home and checked out the game's trailer on YouTube.

And yes... yet another person has been introduced to the timelessness of classical music.

I don't know how good or bad the game is, but Beethoven's music certainly gives it depth and makes you want to go for it. I am certain that people will wonder -- is the game as good as the music!



And now we can go to the Titan watch.

The very famous Titan watches of India. And the very famous Mozart music. Not everybody knows that Mozart is the composer, but this is probably one of the most identifiable ad music in this country.

Another one:


Yes, they were very famous.

Then this bittersweet one:



And then this very sweet one:



And the one with voices:


This post has been written after quite a gap. I hope to be regular and to look for new ways to introduce classical music in simple words.

Do share and introduce others.
